Tiny place barely any sitting space, probably 6-8 total. The food is good though. Dumplings, buns, chow fun, and their Chinese canelloni are just delicious. Soups and noodles with different meats are also available. Cash only. Highly recommended

This is a "tiny" restaurant with only 2 tables-one for 6 people and one for 2 people. Most of their business is takeout. The food is prepared fresh to order and is quite good! The flavors are good and they didn't appear to be overly...More

Tried the roasted pork foon, huge portion for 9.50, more than enough for two people. Noodles had a nice consistency and the pork was flavorful. Highly recommended

We decided to try this after seeing other reviews. The owners are super friendly and the food was amazing. Freshly made and authentic. Very reasonably priced. Small menu but you won't be disappointed. There is limited seating and it doesn't look like it would be...More

This is truly a hole in the wall place. Limited menu but very good food. More of a take-out place since they only have 2 tables - 1 small and one large enough for 6. Prices are very low.

I followed Google and tripadvisor recommendations and they were right - small , family owned yummy noodles - agree that it's a bit oily and needs some extra spice kick but great place to be a bit off the tourist map !
