A friend and I decided to try this restaurant as we are both connoisseurs of Chinese food. The food was fine, but the portions were small and the service was nothing special.

The food was ok. The front desk wasn't exactly friendly so I'm glad I got takeout and didn't stick around. The rice was average. the boneless spareribs were not good and very dry. Definitely an amazing place for crab Rangoons though!
