I thought eating at a Chinese restaurant in China town would be amazing. Not here. The chicken in the Mongolian chicken, general tsao's chicken, and chicken fried rice was rubbery and chewy. It had the same texture as shrimp :(. The dim sum was just...More

We went for the Dim Sum, Being the only anglos in the restaurant makes me think I'm in a good place. Not being an expert at Asian foods, I stuck to the Dim Sum and that was wonderful.

Huge menu, dishes served are equally big (maybe for my European standards). Dishes are tasty yet not too pronounced tastes in the shrimp dish I had. Would recommend this place if you're in the neighborhood.

Chinatown may be one of Chicago’s smallest
neighborhoods geographically, but it's big on
character, colors, sights, sounds, and flavors. In
this South Side neighborhood, you’ll find authentic
Chinese restaurants dotting the length of Wentworth
Avenue. After a meal of dim sum, noodles, duck or
other tantalizing food specialties, satiate your
visual appetite with dozens of public art sculptures
