Great Chinese food, really a cut above every other restaurant in town. Enjoy this place each time I go- this visit, service was particularly good as was the food. Lettuce wraps and moo shoo pork was terrific.

We started going there again since our son lives near the Mon Jim Lau. We used to go there on our dates back in the 70s. It brought back so many memories. The food and atmosphere here are still exceptional. Our waitress, Kristy, was just the nicest and best server that we've had from any of the restaurants we've been... More

I was in Michigan on business and for the first time ever flew into Flint (on Allegiant Airlines), and since my consulting gig was in Canton I wanted to stay in an "intermediate" location and chose Troy.

Food wasn't that great. Steamed dumplings didn't have nearly as much juice as it should. Perch was bland. Price was expensive for the average quality food they serve

It is no wonder that when celebrities come to town they eat here. Check out the photos in the vestibule. Beautiful inside with over the top Chinese food and sushi. Multiple rooms and a full bar. A metro Detroit must!

This is a great spot to show off fine dining and not just typical asian food. The one problem is it is usually very busy on the weekends and the entrance is not large enough for standing room. Bar section is always full as well. Still a very good spot to go for different dining.
