OK if you want a really tasty quick meal then this is the place to go. Its so crowded and noisy it was almost unpleasant. But its pretty good food, always consistently good. Every dish I have had here is great.

Kam heong soft shell crabs were a daily special, spicy and sweet, along with excellent steamed vegetables. Lots of food, I took food home for another night. Everything the people around me were eating looked good, too. Friendly service. Enjoy!
