The wait is way too long, there's no place to sit to wait. The Waiter was talking with another waiter holding food in front of them I can see saliva just enveloping the food they serve. It is so disgusting, there's no etiquette and manners when serving or talking to Customers. They are so abrupt and they hurry you up,... More

The food is good and the price is right. The wait for a table can be long though as this place gets very busy. For this visit, both our tea cups were dirty, one has lipstick on the rim of the cup and the other has some leftover food stuck on the outside of the cup. Both were quickly replaced... More

My wife and I have frequented this restaurant over many years, most typically for lunch Arrive before or after the crowd - it gets busy with wait times going out the door. When we go, we will typically order take out as well for another meal. Hot/sour soup is great, salt and pepper squid is amazing, most things on the... More
