This is where the local Asians go!

Located in an innocuous strip mall, it's exterior hides it's interior charm. I was recommended there by Asian friends. Went there yesterday (Christmas) and it was PACKED! Food was top shelf. Service was a bit overwhelmed because they were swamped - "in the weeds" in restaurant lingo. We were smart... read more

I arrived to this unpleasant place based on location and the inside decoration didn't help either, I wanted to seat in a place away from the noise of other people and the rude waitress didn't let me she obligated me to seat in a small table in a corner, then when I asked for recommendations because I was really hungry...

Very disappointed in the egg drop which was the main reason to get takeout from here. The main courses were average at best

My first visit here was a wonderful experience and for years since I've enjoyed this place. Everything at ABC is just better. The wonton soup is better with its thin wrapper filled with a plump meaty dumpling of pork and shrimp and swimming in a flavorful broth. I crave this soup quite often. The salt and pepper calamari is a... More

This restaurant has many delicious dishes, the Pequin style shrimp with Coconuts ball and Sizzly sea food pot is my favorites. If you like the Chinese Food I really recommend this fabulous restaurant. Don't forget about the great service, very friendly.

ABC has popped up in conversations for years and about two years ago I tried it for the first time and fell deeply in love. A hot steamy food passion ensued and I have never been the same. Having lived in south east Asia I missed authentic flavors and smells of the cuisine. New York style Chinese is tainted with... More

Simple surroundings in a strip mall, with the best authentic Chinese food around. Great selection of seafood, soups, rice and noodle dishes, with simple seasonings and tasty sauces. Don't expect American style Asian food here, it is the real thing, and by far the best in St. Pete.

The food here is always spot on. Prices are reasonable. Service usually decent. My friends and I come here and share each other dishes "family style". Salt and Pepper pork chops and the Ginger Scallion Chicken are good choices. There are always Chinese families eating here, that's always a good sign. The portions are good so there almost always leftovers.... More

We came here for dinner and ordered the dungeoness crab in XO sauce, razor clams in black bean sauce, chicken in special brown sauce, and house fried rice. Everything was amazing! If i had known how large their portions were I would have order one less entree and none of the dimsum i even ordered. Plenty of fresh veggies in... More
