“Local Great Restaurant”
Reviewed August 6, 2012

We liked that there were mostly Asian patrons (we are Anglo) which I read as being positive for getting food that was not too Americanized. We were not disappointed. Wide selection. English menus. I wish I could have spoken Chinese however to clarify some points on the menu. $10 corking fee for our personal Sonoma wine. Lots of live seafood on display. Restaurant was packed on Sunday night. We enjoyed duck, hot and sour soup, spring rolls, and a veggie plate.

“Very Hong Kong”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

The Kitchen is very Hong Kong. For non-Chinese, it can be noisy. The food is Hong Kong quality. The service is surprisingly good. Try a live fish, have it steamed. It is as good as you can get in U.S. Also for those who like prawns: instead of getting the standard prawns with walnuts, try salt and pepper prawns. As for cost, it all depends on whether you order a lot of live seafood or not. If you do $$$$, if not $$.

“Beautiful chinese takeaway to warm a night”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

Wanted a nice takeaway. The restaurant was packed with happy customers who looked like they knew good chinese food.

The portions I received were huge - and I especially remember the mongolian beef which was packed with really fresh chillis.
