Service is excellent. Prices are reasonable. Lunch is more affordable. (11-3). Food is ok. Portions are a good size but not as fresh or tasty. My dish was Lo Mein but very salty. I will try it again at lunch.

Fantastic food and service. My favorite is the Honey Walnut Shrimp, so good. Been here three times and was never disappointed. Great service as well.

Go for the dim sum. Served daily, it is fresh, hot, and delicious. You will think that you are in Hong Kong, where the Cantonese cuisine is king. Don't miss the dim sum, though they do marvels with seafood.

Food here is always good, we enjoyed Dim sum but they don't have the carts anymore. This means everything is fresh but if you just want a lot of choices in front of you it's not the best. That being said, if you know what...More
