Good Chinese food in Pittsburgh

Went to this restaurant twice and both times it was excellent. The portions were large and the price quite reasonable. I am from the West Coast where there is a vast selection of Chinese restaurants and the ingredients used are different. I think this style is more Cantonese...therefore east coast... read more

Stopped there for lunch and had their lunch special of General Tso's Chicken with Hot & Sour soup and a shrimp egg roll. It was all very tasty. Next day I picked up some take out of a Jumbo Chicken Egg roll and some steamed dumplings. The jumbo egg rolls would definitely have been enough. Thing was huge, but also... More

Having eaten here many times in the past, in fact since dating days, looking so forward to having a great Chinese meal. Perhaps our anticipation added to our disappointment! The WonTon soup was still meeting our expectations, however the shrimp egg roll had a doughy wrap, not like the one we remembered. The Moo Goo Gai Pan was tasteless. The... More

My husband introduced me to this place. It is not much to look at and is on a side dtreet downtown. I never would have found it if it would not have been told to me to go. But it is so good. The soup is so good and flavorful. Every meal I have ever gotten from there is great.... More

Simply put- you won't get a better meal for the price anywhere. The food is always wonderful - last night for New Year's Eve my family and I had soup, appetizers and entrees and the her shew duck was fantastic. Treat yourself to their Peking duck - but call in advance. The dumplings (shrimp and pork) were tender, flavorful and... More

Pleasantly surprised! Great food and service. My only complaint is the same as other people have said, the wonton soup. The broth is good however, the wonton's are not stuffed with anything so it's basically broth with wonton skins. Everything else was great! Highly recommend if you are in the area.

I was ready for a good Chinese meal. Ordered appetizers and they were horrible. Payed the bill and got out before ordering anything else.

My husband and I have been going here for many years.......it's simply the best! We travel all over and none can compare......they have spoiled us. Don't even think about not ordering their egg rolls. Parking can be a bit of a hassle but well worth it.
