“Justifiably popular”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

The extensive menu had us sampling a wide array of dishes, most of which were excellent. We found the pricing fair given the overall quality and good portion sizes.

The atmosphere was buzzy as this bustling place (height of the season) was very busy on a balmy winter evening. There were a large number of outside tables too and the restaurant made the setting feel attractive even without scenic views.

The service was variable, that is varying between very good when the owner took our order to inattentive when general waiting staff were involved.

The restaurant is the among the best Chinese restaurants we have been to in South Florida and if you are looking for kosher then this is a sound choice.

“very popular”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

People flock to this place. The portions are ample and specials are good. Prices are on the high side. Service casn be very uneven as they seem to be understffed at peak times. Lunchtime is best time to go for better prices. Menu is extensive and varied.

“Good food but very poor service”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

This is a glatt kosher restaurant with a nice atmosphere, and an outside patio. A little bit noisy inside, as people usually come with their friends, family etc. The booklet menu is very thick, so it is unlikely you will not find something you like (within dietary kosher restrictions). Food (especially chinese and sushi) is very good and there is a large selection of wines. The really weak point is the quality of the service. It is slow and very disorganized. Dishes are served in a randomized order. So, the only solution is to share whatever you get and wait for the rest. A 18% gratuity is also automatically added to your bill! Prices are a bit above average.
