This restaurant lived up to the five-star hype, introducing us to both provincial and city fare most of us have never been privileged to taste before. My only experience with comparable food was at a restaurant in New York staffed by master chefs and underwritten by the Chinese government. The decor is a bit shopworn, the booths oddly uncomfortable, but... More

Delicious offerings in a nice atmosphere. Not always the quietest place, but great food and good service.

Second time we have visited but first review. They have an extensive menu. I ordered beef with broccoli. It was a large portion of which about half I took home. My biggest complaint is that some of the beef was grisly and tough. They had beer and wine but unfortunately no draft beer which is a shame with all of... More

Some of the best Chinese food I have ever eaten, but I do have some concerns about the amount of MSG in the food. They have these big balloon breads which are not only spectacular to look at but also tasty. There was this eggplant dish with numbing spice which was just fantastic. Highly recommend this place.

We went here for a date night by the suggestion of many Cville locals. Told the food was super authentic and worth every bit! All of the food we ordered was sub-par... Leaning towards bad. We ordered spring rolls and they were filled with potato maybe? Was squishy and not a crunchy cabbage filling.. Also got the dumplings and they... More

This restaurant would not run separate bills for the people in our group--very frustrating when our meals were getting reimbursed from separate institutions. I will never return.

I found this restaurant accidentally and we went in to give it a try. We are picky when it comes to Chinese food. I would give this restaurant an above average comments. This is a good pick for those who wants to have authentic Chinese food. The famous Sweet n Sour red fish is average in quality (mainly because it's... More

The food is "ok" it's a little costly, but the spring rolls and duck sauce is excellent, I would go back just for the spring rolls!

On my first visit to the restaurant I was with a group of three. We ordered several dishes... GOlden Mountain Chicken, GRandmas Pork with Wood Ear Mushrooms, and Hot and sour soup. GMC was sweet and tangy. I did not care for it as much as others as the shredded chicken was fried in a cornstarch breaking. Popular dish, similar... More

We are always on the hunt for local cuisine. We decided to take a chance on this place. So glad we did. Our waiter helped to guide us as we ordered, otherwise we would have got something way too hot. Everything is spicy and wonderful. It is clear that the locals like this place. I would probably eat here all... More
