I ate here last month while in Cincinnati. I agree that it is a very good Chinese-American restaurant, but certainly not worth the lavish praise that most reviewers are giving it. The food is very good, the service is good and the overall ambiance is good. By no stretch does this restaurant deserve excellent ratings nor does it belong in the top 5 in Cincinnati. Would I eat here again? Yes. Would I recommend it to friends? Yes, but with a caution about the prices. However I feel that placing this restaurant among the top in Cincinnati is a disservice to a lot of excellent restaurants in the area.

No better than any other "Chinese" restaurant, but at twice the price. $9 for a a tiny amount of Vegetable Delight and you don't get soup and an egg roll? This place is certainly fooling a lot of people.

The food was excellent. Amazing crab Rangoon. The food was hot and well prepared. My husband got the best tasting scallops and I had a great shrimp dish. Typically I prefer chicken fried rice, but I thought their white rice was actually better.

We will return!

Nice ambiance with attentive service and large menu of authentic Chinese dishes. Sophisticated wine menu of great selections at reasonable prices. Also wonderful Belgian and Scottish beers on a special seasonal menu card. We found the steamed sea bass to be superb. We definitely plan a return visit.
