Excellent quality food and service

My parents have been coming to this little gem for years. While the Chinese menu is typical and extensive they also offer fantastic Sushi. I ordered a Ahi and Pistachio Sushimi dish that was out of this world. My main course was Dragon and Phoenix, while others had shrimp in lobster sauce and... read more

I have eaten at Taipei several times, and regularly have takeaway food as well. The lunchtime specials offer good value, with both Cantonese and Sichuan-style dishes, and the spices are bolder than at many local Chinese restaurants. Their food hygiene has never seemed especially good, but I was disturbed to see that they have recently been cited for serious food... More

Best sushi. Fresh, large rolls, wonderful ingredients. Service great andthey deliver locally! Price is higher than done neighboring sushi joints, but the food is worth it.

This is a great Chinese restaurant! We dine here at least twice a month. The sushi is terrific and super fresh! All the usual Chinese food favorites spiced to order. General Tso's chicken, Basil chicken, crispy prawn Sichuan and Birds Nest are all fantastic. Great friendly and professional staff all at a very good price.

On our way home from a matinee in Pittsburgh, we took an unexpected chance on this restaurant, having not been there for years. It was happy hour (4 to 6) with appetizer and drink specials. Feasting on the appetizers, we later order a wonderful meal or mainly seafood. Everything was fresh tasting and beautifully presented. We liked it so much... More

Very good family owned restaurant, very welcoming atmosphere. Food is quite good, as is service. You won't be disappointed. Very cheap, but the food does not reflect this. Parking may sometimes be a problem on Friday or Saturday nights, but not usually. Overall, great place for families and friends.

This restaurant is close to work, so I have been here for lunch and picked up dinner for take-out. I really like the general tso's shrimp. I haven't seen it on many Chinese restaurant menu's. My stand-by chicken and broccoli is also good here. The staff is always friendly. I just recently used the online ordering system and it worked... More
