Good Chinese restaurant

I had been here once or twice around the year 2000 but decided to go back since I was in the area. First, the decor is nice. I think it had been renovated since I had last been there. The interior design is modern and tasteful and the restaurant is spacious and dimly lit, perhaps too much so... read more

This is my favorite restaurant in Cambridge. Their lunch buffet spread is very good too. I have been going to this place quite a bit even in the midst of my busy law school schedule. The food is a little on the expensive side but very well worth the price. You should try their spring rolls and the fried rice.... More

We spend a lot of time in China-- we know Chinese food. This is the real deal, some dishes with a twist, but still well within the parameters. not cheap, not absurdly expensive. Very pretty dining area, and very good waitstaff. We'll be back.

With a consistently extensive and tasty menu, this restaurant has earned a loyal clientele in the lively northbound segment of Mass Avenue north in Cambridge. The fish and seafood dishes are particularly elegant and very fresh. It is also a favorite of lunch goers who enjoy the street view from a full bar at any time. Classics like the garlic... More

I loved the food here. The menu is not extensive but what they serve is done extremely well. The atmosphere is also very nice and service is very good. Every time I am in the area I always try to have a meal here. I would recommend it to anyone.

Let me start with my title: I dare to say this is one of the best if not the best chinese restaurants I have eaten at in terms of what they offer on their buffet and how it tastes. The manager of the restaurant greeted in a very courteous way, we were five and he quickly prepared a table for... More

Visiting Boston and wanted to try some Chinese. Service was very fast. Nice quiet restaurant. Great food for a great price. Had the best wonton soup we have ever tried to date. We also tried Dim Sum for the first time and it was delicious!! Would recommend anyone to go there.
