The food is really excellent, service is good and it is always consistent. I have been coming to this place every time I visit Dallas for the past 5 years and it is always a great stop. The food is always amazing and the portions are big. They only take cash so be ready for that but it is reasonably... More

I highly suggest the BBQ pork wonton soup with the ramen noodles. I have had various dishes that were just yummy. My husband usually heads towards the spicer dishes such as orange beef or spicy style. My mother in law usually gets the pork soft noodle with roasted pork. This place is cash only.

Very small restaurant that was very big in hospitality and flavor. It is nothing to look at from the outside, but just inside the door you see the beautiful BBQ ducks and sausage hanging ready and you know you have come to the right place. They do not sell alcohol, but were fine with BYOB. A great time was had... More

My wife and I had an hour to kill before an appointment in Dallas so we decided to stop by this place for lunch. Upon entering, the place looked so much like the one in North Richland Hills (furniture, etc) so we figured it's the same owner since the names are the same. I ordered the Beef Stew Wonton Noodle...

This place is one of our favorites. There are several in the Dallas area, all delightful. This is not an Americanized Chinese eatery. Asian customers outnumber non-Asians about eight to one, The only concession to American styles is the size of the portions. Typically one dish will feed two people, especially if you add an appetizer. Two dishes will feed... More

We've eaten here many times and enjoy it. Our favorite is the roast duck. Bring cash as no credit cards taken!

If you want real authentic Chines food - this is the place. If your looking for an upscale atmosphere this is not the place. The food is incredibly fresh, consistent and delicious. This place has been around for several years - a must for those who like Chines food.
