We were taken by Chicago natives to their favorite Asian restaurant, we were delighted. Food was wonderful, very fair price and exceptional fast, friendly service. A delightful place to eat, relax and share good times.

This is certainly a go to for my family. The Chinese food is excellent and plentiful. We love the large tables and lazy susans to facilitate reaching for stuff. We can't say enough about the food quality...WOW WOW!

While the food was good, the service was creepy. That's the only word I have to describe it. The wait person seemed to appear from nowhere and suddenly be standing over you with a very high pitched voice asking strange questions. No I had not...More

Chinatown
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
