We had dinner there and the waiter seems stressed as he tried to service everyone there while there were two others that was just standing. We ordered a special dish that turned out okay and the salt and pepper shrimp was not crispy.

Quaint, tasty, great portions with lots of flavor. Fantastic service and cool street level view to boot. Right across from the Wyndham and the Melting Pot. Priced better than you would think for its location. A definite eat for Chinese cravings.
