By Chinese stand, it wasn't a good resturant. the food is pretty rough and the tasty is no big difference between one to another. However, after a long trip in US, it's a right place to please Chinese stomach somewhat. Particular with aneighbouring Chinese supermarket. we often combine shopping/lunch together. besides, it's a good balance between the price and the... More
