Unfriendly waiters, we felt like we had inconvenienced them asking in English what food they could recommend. Some of the fish in the fish tank looked like they had already passed the best-before date. We couldn't tell if they were dead or alive. The food...More

All its dim sum dishes are very authentic and excellent. Dim sum is the Chinese (Cantonese) version of the Spanish Tapas - little dishes. Start with popular ones like steamed pork buns, shrimp dumplings, pork ribs, and sticky rice. I like its more adventurous dishes...More

I had a diner with a friend. We had steam crab ($65?), vegetable ($20) and two small hot and sour soup. I know the crab is expensive ($28/lb). It is difficult to know it is more than 2 lbs. I won't go there again.

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
