Easy and quiet

Exactly what you need if you're in a rush. Good food. Nice people. Good service and the location couldn't be more convenient.

the bar is good, cheap beer compared to other places (4.5$) and some cool coktails. however, the club is poor (altough it is free which is cool) but the DJ isn't really good, poor music transition, saturated sound (either old instalation or 192 kbps music quality).

This is the closest I have found to St. Louis Shrimp Fried Rice. I kept going back to Hong Kong for the Shrimp Fried Rice each day while in Cambridge. It is open until 2 AM. They do not have ground red pepper so you need to bring your own. I really enjoyed it and highly recommend it. Ask for... More

Good Chinese Food. Since I am addicted to spices, I could have been happier had there been the food been spicier. But the food was good. The prices are not too high and we loved it.

We went past ten and the restaurant remains open until about 2 a.m. The food is good and the prices are really reasonable. The portion is large. I ordered some spicy food but the level of spices was quite light. If you are not used to spices you would definitely like their spicy items as well as they are just... More
