This restaurant deserves a lot of credit for being open past midnight on a Sunday. The service was very friendly and polite. They are sweet employees. The food is not delicious. The noodles were dry, greasy, and flavorless. The fried rice was bland, and flavorless. The roast was flavorless. The gyoza was very tasty. On a scale from 1-10, flavor... More

Bar none the best and most authentic Chinese food we've had in the US ( well.... between New York , Chicago , San Francisco and Los Angeles actually). Waiters are a bit rough around the edges ( and don't be surprised if the kitchen staff start chopping veggies on the table next to you) but the food, literally any dish... More

A great sit down restaurant. The decor is a little dated but the food is wonderful. Try the shrimp with spicy salt (with no shell), it's tasty, crunchy, golden brown goodness. Another tasty dish is the steamed whole fish or fish fillet. If seafood is not your speed they have all the favorites, beef, pork, chicken, and duck. They are... More

Been here twice and always good. The lobster with ginger is excellent. They cook fast and always consistently yummy. Service is quick. Don't expect nice servers. They don't say much. But food comes out fast .

When in Los Angeles Chinatown, where else do you get a good lunch but Full House. I have been to this place so many times and keep on coming back. Real Chinese food at a good price. The Mixed vegetables and the Stuffed Tofu is my favorite dish here. My wife always take me there for family dinner. The prices... More

We came here with a party of 8. They sat us down right away and got things started. Top of my list- the salt and pepper calamari. OMG!! This was amazing. The orange chicken was better than expected. The garlic shrimp was aromatic and lovely. the garlic green beans were fresh and crunchy. We had so many dishes and they... More

On arrival they immediately bought out a glass of chilled water with Ice and pot of green tea. In my experience you normally only get one or the other. I had 4 Egg Rolls ($3.85) and Sliced Tender Pork with vegetables now ($7.85) HUGE portions, I'm glad I didn't have rice.The main was good quality but was 'drowned' in oil... More

One of the few places open after the bars close. Located in the heart of China Town, this restaurant is casual, quick, and good for groups. Service was super fast! Though it says seafood, I believe there may be some vegetarian options. Before you order, your server brings a hot steel kettle full of green tea. That's the best part!... More

Food is very good. I make the trip just for the fried lobster. It is to die for. It is a family style restaurant which makes it good because you can order a variety of dishes and try more things. I always send my fried rice back because it never comes out brown enough for me but it is always... More

Just a few minutes from the house. Open late and always bustling. Scrambled egg and shrimp is good, combo fried rice too. They take to-do orders and turn the around quickly.
