The place may be cramped and bustling with people. All the signs of a great place to eat. The locals eat here so it must be good. Prompt service. Good value meal. We ate there twice.

I loved this little spot! We had a great lunch, we tried to pick out the most unique type flavors we could find and tried spicy jelly fish (not my thing at all!) and salted fish fried rice (yum!). Service was great, the green tea was very good. Great spot to try in Chinatown!

This was highly recommended to us and now we know why! Excellent! Food was outstanding and service also! Need to watch closely for entrance as it is on 2nd floor. We highly recommend this !

If you know authentic and great Chinese food and you are expecting this to be the place, you will be HUGELY disappointed. You are not going for service and a high-end environment; this place has great local feel with reasonable prices. Staff nice but busy. The food did not live up to the other reviewers 3-5 star contributions. We ordered... More

Almost missed it. Use GPS walking directions.You have to walk up steps to second story. But well done, fresh, expansive menu at a great price. A Must is to add a clay pot dish when visiting The Clay Pot. Not fancy at all , but Perfect for lunch.!!

We visited this place on the strength of the reviews of Trip advisor and were not disappointed. In the heart of Chinatown this place has an authentic feel. Nothing fancy but just well cooked food. We had the deluxe menu for $14 which included shrimps with fried rice, sweet and sour pork and Mongolian beef. The beef was especially good.... More

My cousin wanted Chinese food and found this on Yelp. Other reviews were good. We ordered spring rolls (mediocre at best), and a chicken, sausage clay pot and rice. We were glad we hadn't ordered anything else. The clay pot was supposed to be chicken..but it was chewy, and didn't really have any chicken flavor. Rubbery. Just no real flavor... More
