Small, family run Chinese restaurant on the edge of Chinatown that is cash only. General Tso’s chicken was toasty and tasty. Sometimes it can be just a derivative of orange chicken or sweet and sour and this was definitely not the case. Mongolian shrimp, chicken and beef with ginger and onion was fresh tasting served over a bed of brown rice which is an upgrade and you must ask for. They offered some varietal of a dumpling as a daily special and it was on par with the Tso’s chicken. Call ahead if you’re in a hurry; service is paced……….you’ll understand when you arrive.

Amazing food individually prepared while you wait and well worth it. A small, 9 tables, family restaurant, but some of the best Chinese food my wife and I have ever had. Unfortunately we could not talk them into relocating to Arizona so can only highly suggest for those who visit or live there do not miss out on this opportunity.

Love this place. Kind of a dive but food is good and the price is right. I go here for lunch fairly frequently. I like the seafood with vegetables. Seems like a couple own/run this place. They are quiet but friendly and always remember my order which is unusual in such a big city

A little place on the edge of the Financial District, North Beach and Chinatown. We ordered the potstickers, vegetable chow mein and General Tso's Chicken. Everything was fantastic, fresh and so deliscious. Looked like a husband and wife team, she was so sweet and nice. Not fancy looking, but bright and clean. I thought it was cute. But more importantly, wonderful food.
