It was so different to go through a hot pot meal slowly in a group of 5 rather than as a couple. It just felt like being in China -- there was so much we could sample: fungi, leafy greens, seafood, meat and bean noodles....More

There is a flight of stairs that leads down to the restaurant from the street level. The restaurant itself is nondescript in terms of decor, but it is comfortable with plenty of adequate seating. Don't be deterred by it's lack of ambiance because this is...More

Haven't received such bad service anywhere else. I'd strongly recommend against going there. We went there in a group of 12 and ordered various dishes from the menu.The waiter came back and said that a third of the dishes we ordered were unavailable. Alright, we...More

This place is absolutely fantastic, particularly when you are craving real, non-Americanized Chinese food. Two of my favorite dishes are salt-baked prawns with pepper and stir-fried prawns with pickled chili and minced pork. Don't bother peeling the prawns -- just eat them shells and all....More
