A return visit to this popular seafood restaurant. Very crowded on Friday night but not overly noisy so it was possible to enjoy the meal and have a nice conversation. The service was very professional and helpful with dish selections. The mixed green dish in...garlic was cooked perfectly with no overpowering garlic taste. The lobster was done perfectly and had an excellent taste - highly recommended! The prawns with walnuts was also superb. Overall a most satisfying dinner.More

We. were hungry for Chinese food. I was close to our condo. It is in a strip mall on the second floor. Good parking and even an elevator. I swear that we were the only non Chinese and tourists in the place. We made reservations...and glad that we did. The place filled up fast and we know why! Good service and great food . There is an Lobster tank near the entrance that had more lobsters than I have ever seen! Try it!More

Decent flavors (compared to Hong Kong, Macau, Singapore) in most dishes. Cannot and should not be classified as Panda Express variety of Americanized Chinese food.

If you need a local spot for late night eats, this is your place! We had the lobster, seafood noodles, fried rice, and ginger chicken and everything was delicious. The service is super fast and they are open 24 hours.

Recommend as a family restaurant and reasonably priced which it is. It was very busy and the service was poor. Not the cleanest place toilets disgusting. Lobster was OK the rest of the food passable.

Get your Salt and Pepper Lobster on! Went there for a family dinner, it is always crowded so be prepared to wait. Ordered the lobster, chicken chow mien, fried rice and pork chops. Family enjoyed each dish and would definitely visit again

Very close to where we stayed and recommended by our tour guide, as we bonded over Kung Po chicken. Putting our name on the list didn’t cause much of a wait despite seeming to be very busy. Lots of tables, families but also waiters. They...turn over the tables for new customers very efficiently. A mild wait as it seemed the local customers got their food first but after chatting to the waiter we were overwhelmed by the size of appetisers and soup. Not quite regretting ordering our main meals but well on the way to being full when they arrived. The Kung Po (not on the menu) was good as anticipated and generously sized. Around us fascinating to watch the duck being carved and the lobsters being served. Our waiter was friendly in the end, especially compared to waiters we’ve experienced elsewhere. Glad we went and would go again. My wife rates it her best Chinese restaurant ever.More
