This is a little, hole-in-the-wall restaurant, that you would probably walk by and not notice, but it is definitely worth stopping in. The prices are very low. I have never been to China, but their food does look authentic. There are a few dishes you...More

Good Chinese restaurants everywhere seem to have the same basic template; most are hole in the wall place with odd, little, or no English outside, service is definitely not their focus, the food is the focus. It's all about the food. Add Hong Kong Eatery...More
