Love the food and the waitress. She was very respectful and pleasant. Will come back anytime and enjoy another helping of beef and broccoli.

The inside and outside is nothing to scream about, but food Is delicious, although no one seems to speak English well, we were able to order a meal with a variation. After the cruise we... More

Is it possible to give this place negative stars? My boyfriend wanted a mid night snack but a lot of places were closed so we picked this place for some comfort food. We ordered egg drop soup and their house fried rice. I should have listened to the reviews for this place. Their egg drop soup was soooo salty and... More

This is a little place that probably would not get a second glance but was recommended to us at the hotel for Chinese food. The food was very good. Nice portions and not too expensive. The décor is not the best but the service was great and vey nice staff.

The restaurant reminds me of San Francisco. Not much on atmosphere but their food and the service exceeds most restaurants. I have had them make a custom dish for me and they happily comply. That is eggplant with black bean sauce. Just perfect like Hong Kong not too salty. The hot pepper in oil is available sometimes you have to... More

This small restaurant did not look good from outside and inside. I already placed my orders and paid for it when I noticed a man was sleeping at a sofa at the corner close to the tables. I told them to go. It did not take 10 minutes and I was given already my orders. I think they cooked already... More

Would have walked past if not recommended. Looks shabby without the chic but food was stunning. Service was great and helpful. Food portions huge and very tasty, with some great local specials. Cant believe how empty it was but they obviously have a big take-out trade. Some of the best chinese food we have had anywhere in America.
