“Authentic chinese seafood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Having just returned from a trip to Asia and eating at several seafood restaurants in Malaysia and Japan this place is the real deal. Great food, excellent staff and fairly reasonably priced. Our meal was served family style so everyone got to sample everything. Very enjoyable

“Ginger and Scallion Lobster”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

The ginger and scallion lobster tasted so good! $33 for two well-cooked lobsters. This is definitely better than the American style lobster with lemon butter. We also had pi-pa tofu which is tofu stuffed with meat. It looks different from what I usually have but it is still good but not at the top of my list. It is covered with rice paper instead.

“Overall, A Safe Choice for a Very Good Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 8, 2014

I've eaten here half a dozen times or so -- four of which were with parties of 8 or greater. I wanted a meal that I could count on -- willing to sacrifice a little of the exotic and unusual for consistency. This place has always done a good job of serving excellent, freshly prepared, well presented food -- especially seafood.

The last time I was here, a couple of months ago, we had a huge bowl of hot and sour soup, a steamed bass with black bean sauce, some shrimp (in the shell) with hot oil, a few noodle dishes including Singapore Rice Noodle, a spicy chicken dish, and a ridiculous amount of standard Chinese-American appetizers like fried dumplings, chicken fingers, and spare ribs. My American guests loved everything. It was what I hoped for and now expect when I come here.

“Good Chinese food almost as good as Hong Kong”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013 via mobile

The twin lobsters are great we had two with spring onion and ginger sand two with lobster sauce. Both very fresh,flavorful, and good portions,
Soup was good as we're all the other dishes, we had a table of 11 and food was reasonable and plenty for less than 20.00 per person.

“Good and bad”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

Bathrooms are disgusting and the cooks use them. Not comfortable with that.

Seafood can be great but they will occasionally charge you for a large lobster which they show you but then they cook a smaller one in the kitchen...criminal...lobster shells don't shrink when cooked! It's a shame you can't trust them. Oh, go to the bathroom before you arrive.
