“average”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

I can't say that the food is bad but its definitely not great either. The last time I went my friend ordered their shrimp dumplings. He took a bite and there was a piece of hard plastic in it. The waitress tried to give him some bs explanation as to why the plastic would end up inside the dumpling. The manager came over and apologized for it but that definitely killed our appetite. Also, while we were eating I think their kitchen might have caught on fire or they seriously burned something... There was smoke coming from the kitchen and the tables around us were all coughing from the smoke. The wait staff had to cover their faces when they entered the kitchen...
But yeah.... other than the plastic and the smoke the restaurant wasn't that bad i guess...

“Great Food”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

This place is located near walking street, across from cafe Russia. They have English menus (although no one speaks English) and the restaurant is well-decorated. Great food - finally, Chinese food in China that's good! Mostly Cantonese cuisine. Try the Peking Duck - it's fantastic.

“Good food and open late....”
Reviewed February 6, 2011

We went here for lunch one day and then dinner a couple of days later because it stays open late (7am - 2pm)

The food was very good both times - the broccoli with garlic, and the roasted soy pork were especially good, and the prices won't break your bank either.

The bad thing was that each time we had to wait to be seated and served, and on both occasions the service was very poor - the waiting staff are not terribly interested and it shows but the place always seems to be busy despite this and this gives it a nice buzzy atmosphere.

“All our dishes were good, prices reasonable. The wait was a bit long for food”
Reviewed January 31, 2010

The most we paid was 25yuan a dish during lunch. Everything was good that we tried. Two Chinese vegetable dishes, spare rib claypot dish, and a Sichuan dish.
We stuck to the English menu so that might have limited our choices. A fair amount of people ordered what we saw as some kind of baked fish wrapped in aluminum foil- maybe this is a specialty. In spite of our poor Chinese the waitress did her best to communicate and we got everything we asked for. We waited over 20 minutes for one of the dishes, we wondered a few times if they forgot. It was the sparerib dish so maybe this is the reason? If this is normal you might want to make sure you give yourself extra time if dine here.
