The atmosphere is soft lighting and contemporary furniture and fixtures (check out the dragon on the ceiling). Private dining rooms are available and the individual booths are very nice.

For over 20 yrs, maybe 30 I've been frequenting this restaurant. The pork pan fried noodles are something to behold. NO other restaurant uses the type of noodles they use. AH-mazing! The sweet and pungent shrimp are also a favorite. Davey, the manager is so sweet, and Tony, my usual waiter knows what I want when I sit down. Okay,... More

Had lunch as part of a tour group and many dishes were shared. The orange chicken and the shrimp were particularly good. The fried rice was also terrific.

Pros: They were open for Christmas, they have a private parking lot, we had a private room for 16 people. food came quickly, and was nicely paced with only a few dishes arriving at a time, the food was good with a wide assortment of flavors. Sometimes all Chinese food tastes the same and this was not the case. Cons:... More

I have this horrible memory… it was a cold, wet, sad day on the beach in Atlantic City, NJ. No one was anywhere, and as Atlantic City can do, I felt like I had woken up in some kind of “Twilight Zone” episode, or a 1950’s “B” movie where suddenly everyone but me was killed in some Atomic Bomb thing....

Had lunch at Plum Tree Inn yesterday with three friends. The neighborhood is grungy but parking was easy - directly behind the restaurant. Restaurant is clean but very dated in appearance. Service was excellent and employees were friendly and helpful. Relatively few customers were in the restaurant and they were all Caucasian. Tables were set with forks, not chopsticks. Food... More

I was driving along Broadway Blvd, looking for something nice, and ended walking into the Plum Tree Inn, we had a nice place in a booth, got the menus, and we asked for a wanton soup, it was very good and tasty and next we asked for some beef with mushrooms and a rice bowl, it was fine, but not...

I am sorry - I always try to provide a positive and constructive review but on this occasion I am stumped. I have not had a more disappointing Chinese meal ever. We travelled to Chinatown specifically to have a nice Chinese meal as have had some amazing food experiences in the past. Chinatown was in the middle of a festival... More

A group of us went on a docent-led walking tour of Chinatown. It was a warm, warm day and we had lunch in the plans. One of our group became too hot to continue so we looked around and saw the Plum Tree Inn was in the next block. We agreed she should get inside as quickly as possible. We... More

When you visit Chinatown in LA, you are not going to find streets lined with all manner of cool stuff. You will walk around and say, okay, now what. Well, you are going to dinner or lunch at Plum Tree Inn in Chinatown. It is not located in the area with the sign and the lights of Chinatown, but it... More
