We were here for dinner and surprised that this restaurant so busy. I found foods below average but the portions were huge. Not exactly cheap also. Service was fast but not friendly. Male toilet needs to be cleaned sometimes.

Maybe its a matter of taste but really so, so, so . Read reviews and saw a busy line and full resto on a weekday, that being a really small restaurant. Michelin rated at that. It all boils to the taste. Yang Chow fried rice was very ordinary, not salty yet not flavorful. Quality of rice thick and clumpy. Needed... More

This place was PACKED! On a Tuesday night. Which leads me to believe that I ordered the WRONG thing. I should also mention it was full of Chinese people and clearly they know better than I do about what is good and bad Chinese food. That said, I have only ever had worse Chinese food in Santiago, Chile 😂 I... More

My friend recommended this place, so I decided to give it a try. I arrived at about 1:30 pm on a Sunday, there was a bit of a wait, but not too bad. The steam pork dumping is supposed to be the "must have" dish, but it was a bit too salty for my taste - Admittedly, I am a... More

And fast! Reasonably priced and easy parking. Casual dress code. Not too spicy. Vegetarian dishes are bland. Onion pancakes are a bit greasy but tasty.

Food and service are excellent! On our first visit, the line was out the door so that's when you know a place is good! I've been there about 5 times since March 2016 and never had a bad experience. Fresh & tasty on every visit.

I came here for lunch at least once a month and have never been disappointed with the food. Of course, everyone has to try an order of their juicy dumplings. The restaurant is small and gets packed easily by lunch time. Its a no frills kind of place that serves good food. I normally order an onion cake, veggie dish... More

Came for a late lunch and didn't have to wait long. Shanghai dumplings were very good, the fish dish we ordered was delicious and the pan fried noodles was very good. After a good meal, the two of us had half an order of noodles leftover to take home. All for a very reasonable price.

Thought it would be good since we saw many Chinese eating in the restaurant, but sad to say it was just ok. I've had dumplings in Hong Kong and Taiwan that were great but this place not so good.
