We have been going here for many years. Fortunately, food quality and quantity has not changed. Unfortunately, neither has the carpet or wall paper! But its amazing food, and we will keep going back. Large portions. Fresh, brought to table as its made. Their dry deep fried spicy shrimps are to die for (and many shrimps have done just that).... More

Give this place 3.5 stars. The place is a bit outdated. While the staffs are attentive, they look like they don't want to be here. The food is authentic and the portions good sized. Recommended beef with veggies pan-fried noodles, water spinach with garlic, soft shell crab and clay pot frog legs.

This restaurant in China Town has an extensive lunch menu for less than $5.00. The meals come with tea and soup. Tasty and plenty to eat. If you like seafood, they have plenty of fresh to choose from but that is pricey. The service was good.

its good enough for a average hotel restaurant. It seems to do the trick when I am hungry but this is not a destination restaurant.

Fabulous hospitality and delectable Cantonese cuisine! We are eating here every Friday night with my best friends; we are ordering around six dishes: 1. crabmeat fish maw soup, 2. stir-fried Chinese watercress with shrimp paste, 3. lobsters marinated with salted eggs, 4. spicy and salted pork, 5. Clams with black bean sauce, and 6. steamed sea bass fish.

Our first food stop of our week in Boston. Busy with a queue out of the door. Lunch was $4.50 for 3 courses so all looked good. Nice welcome and good helpings of tasty food only spoilt by the surly service . Not sure they really wanted us non-local folk but would recommend, just.

It was a little scary to eat here, but once you get pass the dilapidated buildings the food is awesome. The entire area looks a little run down, but the food we had was very appealing.

The waiter was very rude. When he served soup, he just throw the bowls on the desk. When we asked to change a server, the server tried to asked us to leave. I have to say they don't know how to respect others. Would never suggest this restaurant.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
A small area rich in Chinese cultural influences, visit Boston’s Chinatown for some great Asian cuisine and small, authentic bakeries. Enter through the iconic Chinatown gate and stroll down Beach, Tyler, and Kneeland streets to explore the compact area. Rest your feet from walking and grab a bite at one of the many restaurants around Chinatown. From traditional Chinese to Vietnamese to Malaysian, there is a wide range of Asian food available, within easy access of South Station. At night, Chinatown becomes a late night food destination after the bars close.
