Standard Cantonese food. Nothing too original, just good solid Cantonese food and tries not to be too Americanized. Doesn't use a lot of MSG. No Vietnamese influence in the food (common in Chinese restaurants in OC). The menu is somewhat limited, but sufficient. Staff is...More

This was our first visit to this restaurant. The food was good and the pricing was moderate. The service was prompt and friendly. However, if your looking for a cocktail you will be out of luck as they only serve beer and wine

The quality of the food and quick and friendly service hasn't changed. The beef with pea pods was tastier than the beef with broccoli. The most notable change is that they no longer have tablecloths or sheers on the windows. It's lost it's elegant atmosphere...More

Not my favorite place for Chinese. Perhaps that is because I am not a fan of ala carte restaurants. Anytime you order a Chinese dinner you expect an egg roll and soup to be included.
