Popular chain serving Cantonese BBO and rice and noodle type of food. Often crowded and open for late hours. We had late dinner there. Big portion. Service was average. Cash only which could be a little inconvenient if you do not carry cash.

Not as good as before a few years back . One good thing is the huge portion size and great selection of dishes. This one is located in the big plaza where 99 Ranch Market is. It's on ground level near escalator. Cash only.
