This restaurant is situated in a small plaza with plenty of parking. Our party of six visited a little late in the day and found the food and the service to be great. We samples the wontons, spring rolls, sweet and sour ribs, shanghai noodles, General Tao's chicken and the Szechuan shrimp and vegetables, all were great. We did note... More

I have been going to this place for weekend dim-sum for the past couple of years and love the fresh, home-made dumplings. The prices are very affordable (sometimes I am surprised by the amount of food I get for the price I pay) and judging by the fact that the overwhelming majority of their clientele is Chinese (at least when...

We have been coming to this restaurant for 9 years and the last two times tried to other places - no comparison! The service here is consistent and they are always attentive and friendly. Had 5 of our party of 7 to come for DimSum and we order seafood congee, two orders of taro wraps, pork siu Mai, two orders... More

Visited the restaurant Saturday night. We ordered the ginger beef combo plate and the soo guy combo plate. Excellent food freshly prepared. Generous portions. Ok atmosphere, but the very attentive staff and delicious food served promptly to our booth made up for any shortcomings in terms of atmosphere. Some of the best Chinese food I've had in the city! I'll... More

My wife and I traveled to this restaurant in Clayton park as a friend of ours recommended. So far a few Chinese restaurant we had tried were totally disappointing. We went for lunch at 2pm and several tables were occupied. We were greeted by a very pleasant waitress. When menues were brought to us I felt a little bit cheeky... More

Enjoyed it previously but would not return with a group. They had promised us large round tables together on one side of the restaurant. Not available when we arrived. Food ordered well in advance. Watched other groups arrive after we did, order, eat and leave before we got egg rolls. Waiting time was much too long. Food was good but... More
