We had dinner here our last night in town. It was recommended by a local. It turned out to be a good place with very good food. Very busy though. As we were leaving there appeared to be about 20 people waiting. This place was full of locals and tourists alike. The earlier you go the better as it filled up quite rapidly.

Upon entering, you are told to go upstairs or downstairs depending on where they have a table open. As soon as we sat down, someone IMMEDIATELY brought us purse hangers. That, to me, was a very kind and welcoming offer of great service. We didn't have to ask. They were brought to us to use without hesitation. The food choices were different to us as we are used to traditional American Chinese items to choose from. We were far from disappointed. While the dishes were brought out to the table as they were ready causing some of our party waiting for their dishes, this did not, in any way, disappoint us as the food was phenominal. Between the four of us, we ended up sharing all of our dishes with each other. All of it was too good NOT to share. It appears the staff works as a team. I still don't know who was our server. All of them worked very well together. We only wished we lived closer to this gem.

We visited this restaurant for lunch. The Kung Pao shrimp were very good but the highlight for the table was the seafood clay pot which came brimming with shrimp, huge scallops and squid. The roast duck is also very good. This is not an "upscale" spot but the food is good & service is quick. Price wise this is one of the better cheaper places around. The place is always full so you know he food is fresh. For dinner be prepared for a lineup at he door.

We made a reservation for 6 pm on Tuesday night for a party of 8. When all of us arrived, we still have to wait at least 15 minues for the table. We order, the waiter will suggest more than one portion of each dish ordered which is too much for all of us. The food tasted OK. The roast duck was the best dish we had. At the end, since they needed a table for the next customer, the waiter told us to leave, although politely, after we paid.

Recommended to us by local shop keeper in Chinatown, our having struck up a conversation with them and asking what they thought of Bund Shanghai or Hunan Home as we were aboutbto try one, working on Trip Advisor recommendations here. The local described both as 'average' and suggested R&G as the place they always use. Glad they did.
First class food
Good service
Great value for money
As always, if the locals eat in a place it invariably turns out to be good.
This place had a mixed clientele of locals. (Incl Chinese), business people and I guess visitors like ourselves.
We sat downstairs which doesn't look much but the food and service are great.
Make this your go to for Chinese in China tow
