This is a top Chinese Restaurant. Went with ten and they handled separate checks without a problem. The food and service was outstanding.

Best chinese food in Connecticut! There is literally no place like this. The waiter's are all dressed in suits. They make a mean scorpion bowl. Great food with hot towels when your done and fruit. I've been going here for 20 years I can never go to a hole in the wall chinese food place after going here.

In this typical Chinese restaurant, I found good food and good service. It was quiet enough to conduct business and to have a discussion. It was very enjoyable and I was able to get things done while there.

Went to this restaurant at about 5:45p on a Friday with a reservation. The place was pretty well filled. We were quickly seated. Service was either very good or somewhat rushed; I think it was the latter. Food OKay. Hot and Sour soup only fair. Felt we were being pushed to finish and leave. Very noisy place. Tables so packed... More

Invited for the first time, I was greatly impressed by the decore and fine paintings and art. The propietors greeted and welcomed us graciously. The menu was a bit higher that your typical oriental diner, but I found the quality higher as well. Beyond all, the table servers were extra attentive and very personalble and professional, especially Miss Happy !

We really like this restaurant for lunch. They serve on table clothes with cloth napkins and their fried noodles are fresh and tasty. The wait staff are dressed formally and the amount of food always requires us to come out with a doggy bag. The only problem I have is their soups. The wontons are much too thick and doughy....

First experience was our last ! We thought we'd treat ourselves to a PooPoo platter. WHAT A MISTAKE ! Shrimp toast was not prepared properly, too thick breading.Ribs had barely any meat on them. Egg rolls tough and chewy. chicken fingers overly battered. A chicken / vegetable stir fry was so dry it didn't moisten rice.Our waiter was a picklepuss.... More
