Fabulous dumplings, fast delivery service, and high quality ingredients. I've eaten in the restaurant too and that is fine, but nothing special about the atmosphere.

This is a truly fine Chinese restaurant, probably the best in Boston outside of Chinatown. They follow the seasons and the menu changes as it should in an excellent kitchen. The dining room is unimpressive but the good food more than makes up for that. It is a family place and they are very friendly and welcoming.

We have been eating here for years. We LOVE the food here.

Quite a large selection of very tasty Northern style chinese food. Judging by the number of Chinese clients, I would guess the food is also authentic.
Their dumplings are very popular. The cucumber salad is refreshing. Scallion pancake appetisers are good. Chinese cabbage/bokchoy with garlic is great. Xingxong chicken (not sure of the spelling)- now this is a fiery hot dry chicken dish with chinese peppercorn and redchillies - not for the faint hearted. Frankly, we have never been disappointed by anything we have tried.

If you are interested in a refined dining experience, then this is not the place. If the food is really what you are interested in, then look no further.

There are weeks where I have eaten here every other day because of how consistently good the food is here.

They are known for their hand made dumplings, but venture beyond this and try out their fantastic Northern-style chinese food. Don't be fooled by the decor or the service, . This is not what this place is about, but do go there for the food. It is consistently fantastic. Ask the owner what they recommend or look at what the other Chinese people at the restaurant are eating, you will not be disappointed.

I highly recommend the cucumber salad, it's an unusual combination of garlic, cilantro, ginger, salt and cucumbers...sublime...this is what brings me back here again and again.

I have eaten from here a few times and the food is pretty good but the host can be pretty rude sometimes and service is slow
