An authentic family restaurant. No where else in this area will make it as good as this restaurant. The noodle soup is great , the handmade dumplings are just like the one made by mom back at home. Their steam buns and 'flower ' buns...More

This is a family run business. Sisters wait on tables. A nephew or two help too. Another family member cooks. And it works. I have been eating here for some 20 years. I have watched those kits grow up from babies to now in college....More

Definitely small but food seemed very authentic. All of the other diners were Chinese or Chinese-Americans. Would eat there again if I lived in the area.

I love this restaurant. It's my favorite for everyday Chinese food. The staff is friendly and fast. Their specialty is the Cross Bridge Soup. It's very popular and when you enter this small, casual restaurant, you'll see the majority of diners eating this soup. Their...More

at lunch time, they always recommend rice noodle, even you wanna order something else ~ I guess it is just easy for them to prepare in the kitchen. while, what they recommended is somehow right, because the others are even worse.

This may be the WORST chinese restaurant I've ever eaten at. I ordered a dinner sized portion of Szechuan pork. It was covered in some thick, sweet glop which had to have come from a bottle. The amount of pork in relation to the vegetables...More
