I would never eat here again. The place is dirty and smells and is probably an indication of how the kitchen is kept. The chicken was like rubber and the rice was even bad. There are way better options!

Have been going to this restaurant for years, but now finally live in the area. A definite go-to when you want classic Chinese food. Beautiful romantic setting and top-notch food and service. Glad I'm nearby, but I'd go the distance.

We went here with a groupon but after reading some of the reviews we were left wondering if we had made a mistake. Nothing could be further from the truth.The service was excellent, all our meals were great (5 different platters),nice ambiance. highly recommended. The prices were reasonable and were made even better with a groupon.

Entertainment was great, service was worse than terrible. Wish I could give a review on the food, but was never served. Waited over an hour after ordering before we left - still with no food. Restaurant looked semi-full but not especially busy, in all it was a very disappointing experience.

Interior is nice and piano Music in bar is nice. However food and service is poor, so I won't be returning. It's sad since This restaurant is in a great location and is nice inside plus it's been there many years. But one dish we ordered wasn't prepared as described on the menu and was not edible. The fried rice... More

The waitress was efficient at getting us started, but left us to visit long after we finished eating. The food was pleasantly tasty, and nicely inexpensive for my choices. I had moo shu shrimp which was well-prepared and crispy shrimp as an appetizer. Hubby had beef with broccoli, which he enjoyed. The fortunes were hilarious. It is quite near the... More

We recently visited this Chinese restaurant for lunch, meeting some friends that we had not seen in years. The decor was nice and the quiet ambiance allowed us to talk without having to shout above the noise one frequently finds in many restaurants. They, also, did not try to hurry us so we had ample time to catch up with... More
