Stopped by since this was walking distance to my hotel and i just wanted a cocktail. You cant beat the prices (since it is a not a bar by trade). The waitress was friendly, offering some wonton noodles to snack on with my drink. I would definitely return.

The food is good and plentiful. This restaurant has been at this location for as long as I can remember. It's good for lunch and/or dinner. They have a huge variety and I typically lean to the Kung Po Shrimp.

I have been coming here on and off since my childhood. When I am in Richmond I always try to pay a visit. My favorite dishes are the sub gum wonton soup, the noodles with minced pork meat sauce and the shrimp with lobster sauce. The family that runs the restaurant is very nice and the service is excellent .... More

Wow, what's old is new again! This place has been around forever and with food like this it's plain to see why. My mom and I decided to eat in, and the service was really nice. We were seated immediately and our orders taken. Drinks were then promptly bought to the table. There was very pleasant music playing ( a... More

It has been a while since I've visited this establishment. Before my one and only visit, I had heard of the seemingly popular Chinese restaurant. I had heard many good things. Upon arrival, one can be impressed by the decor. Which is the typical style Chinese art and sculpture. However, I found the food about as good as you might... More

What a Jewel ! Service and Food was so much better than the large chain restaurants I visited in Richmond. The Pepper Steak was delicious! Outstanding Egg Drop soup...tastes just like the soup at the famous Canton Village in New York City. I love the classic Neon sign on the building...it is so inviting. The Retro Decor of the dining...

Have been going for years when I pass through Richmond. Wor won Ton, shrimp with lobster and noodles with meat sauce were very good. Very nice staff. Not gourmet but solid Chinese "comfort " food. Not greasy and well prepared.

It is with great sadness that I write this review. I have been coming here since the 1960's and it has always been great. I moved away and was back home for a couple of days and went here. When I walked in it looked the same right off but looking and smelling closer I saw a dirty restaurant with... More

It´s a classic Chinese-American restaurant. Maybe not as traditional as some would want, but the Chinese family keep part of the menu authentic. Nevertheless, it´s a good option if you are craving Chinese food and want good food with a good price.
