The Chinese food at this small Restaraunt was amazing. Rivaling the food that I have eaten in San Francisco. Excellent service. Generous hosts. Ms. Shirley runs a first rate and authentic operation. The dim sum was to die for Great soup dumplings(dragon). Served with vinegar and ginger. This is not to be missed. Excellent seafood dishes. I love this place.... More

It's so refreshing to come to a restaurant, where the owners pride themselves on making great food with the freshest ingredients. Everything is made fresh when ordered. All the soups are outstanding, but my favorite, is their egg drop soup. The egg rolls are to die for. If Your looking for a restaurant that is always great, that You can... More

But our server redeemed herself in the end with her southern charm. Food was highly priced but it was good and the portions were worth it. Restaurant felt a little dingy and food tasted more americanized than other Chinese restaurants. Would go back though!
