went here based on good reviews but we did not think it was all that great. we are familiar with good chinese food and maybe we did not order the right dishes. my food came out 20 min before my husband's so we barely ate together. not sure what was going on in the kitchen.

This restraurant is located in a strip mall, don't let that influence your decision to stop and try it. The food was wonderful and wonderfully cooked. I would eat here at least once a week, if I lived in St. Peterburg.

Doesn't look like much from the outside, but we had a very enjoyable meal here. We had several dishes to share and enjoyed each one of them. The seafood is fresh and cooked with a light touch.

Best in Tampa/St. Pete area. Hidden in a strip mall off the highway, this Cantonese restaurant stocks live lobsters, dungeon crabs, eels and fishes in aquariums between the dining room and the kitchen. The BBQ duck and roast pork are tasty. Service is prompt and the atmosphere is good for family dining. The only downside is the soup which is salty and has some MSG taste. Skip the soup and enjoy the shrimp, stir-fried fresh vegetables, and the noodle dishes. Steamed whole fish is superb, if you are willing to pay $18/lb.
