If you go to this place don't order what Panda Express is selling because the taste and the appearance are quite similar. Order shao lung pao, the tofu and fish and yang chao fried rice. Go early because the place is a bit small and there is a line. Price is very reasonable.

Authentic and traditional Shanghainese food that we keep coming back to when we visit southern California! Don't come expecting either Cantonese or northern Chinese food. It is Shanghainese! Including all the homestyle dishes you can think of. Great stir fried sticky rice cakes, edamame with tofu strips and preserved vegetables, fried oily tofu with cellophane noodles in soup, and xiao... More

Great tasty Chinese food. Excellent service and great price. Very popular for lunch even on Weekdays. We met here w/ a friend one day and ended up coming here every day for the following days when staying in Anaheim.

This is the place to get authentic Chinese specifically Taiwanese food a threat prices. Nice friendly staff. Would recommend the pepper steak or beef on hot plate. Also Peking style pork ribs are great. The steamed veggies come in different style n all of them are great. Come here once a month since I found this place.

We decided to try this place on a Saturday just before noon and found it to be fairly busy. Nevertheless we got a table for the 5 of us and we were served quickly. There was a lot of choice of dim sum as well as other dishes, all at very good prices. Try their xiao long bao! They're made... More

Great Chinese Food near Cerritos without having to drive to Chinatown! Go between 11-3 and choose from their great lunch menu at superb prices! It's clean and friendly.

We live in Irvine but make the drive to Canaan because of the yummy food. Their prices are cheap compared to the Chinese restaurants in Irvine. However, we always tend to order too many dishes since each items in only $5-6 and the bills comes out to be huge. It's not a very big restaurant but we have never had... More
