The place is small and gets crowded more often than not. Service is quick, food is tasty although I wish there are more choices. Wonton soup is the best, very tasty. Staff are polite and accommodating. They do not deliver so you have to call in your order and pick them up.

Nothing really special, hot dogs were good, 2 cheese ones for 5.20USD, the place is really small and it can get full in just seconds, mainly tourists are the ones who enter to try them.

We ate dinner here on a Friday night. The place was relatively full, and we had to wait about five minutes for a table. Once we were seated, we were very quickly given two cups of hot tea to enjoy. Our server showed up a few minutes later to take our order for any appetizers and beverages, and we put... More

Very consistent food and service. Very good dine-in food (not a fan of the take out since noodles get a bit soggy). Have eaten here many many times - never disappoints. Owner Mary is sweet, friendly and very personable. She owned the previous restaurant on the same site (China Tea House) which was also very good.

Good mix of Asian dishes. The wait staff are attentive and helpful. I've never had an item here that wasn't good. Small place that is not too busy. Service is usually pretty quick. I have many Asian friends who are foodies and they suggested it the first time I went.

My husband and I frequently get take out from here more in the winter when we don't want greasy Chinese food but still interested in Asian fare. It's really yummy. If you want it spicy make sure you really ask for it because they keep everything with no heat even if it says spicy (most people I am Sure prefer... More

Cannot say enough good things about this place. Consistency and excellent service is what makes this place out familys' go to restaurant. Please try the Thai basil fried rice. The Saigon beef, coconut shrimp, and curry noodle soup are also exquisite. Reasonable price be friendly staff.

It's a good place to dine. The staff is courteous and efficient. The owner is usually present in person. The food is good. It's pack most of the time which gives you an idea that all these people couldn't be wrong. Ample parking space and close to the New Bridge Landing station of the NJ Transit train system. I have...

I'm not really sure what to write to be honest. The food was very average. I liked that there were some different choices then typical on the menu. However, the food came out so surprisingly quick it was impossible it was prepared fresh. The service was good and prompt. They gave tea when I was seated which was nice. The... More
