88 never fails, food and servuce are always spot on. Great soups, always a pleasing special. Hot and sour soup, shrimp and chicken special and great hot tea. The owners are such lovely people and always make you feel welcome.

This is my 1st visit here and although the decor is pretty basic the food is good. The staff is very attentive which makes this place a good choice. The food is a step up from the traditional Chinese fare. The prices are good too.
