Ok, so no this isn't gourmet Chinese food, but its fresh, the owner always remembers you and your kids - even if he hasn't seen you in 10 years. Family run, and very accommodating so I am giving it an excellent review.

This is authentic Chinese food. Ask for the Chinese menu if you don't get one but first order your soup dumplings....only available in the afternoon, not for take out and first-come-first served. They do run out. Order the pork bellies and something else authentic and...More

Service is excellent in my experience. Quick, to the point and friendly. The food is in that area of "just right". I am particularly fond of the Peking Duck from there.
