Hong Kong style Chinese food, very fresh. Items are cooked with a light hand, beautiful textures. Excellent values.

We have our golf group dinner every month the the past four years. Food is always good, hot, and tasty. There is a private room in back that holds our group of 30+ and it allows up to socialized before dinner. Manny the manager is very accommodating and will make any dish we request.

This is a hole in the wall Chinese family restaurant. Tasty food and very inexpensive. No tablecloth nor wine. Family dinner for 4 at $20 if you don't order seafood.

Great place to go for consistently good Chinese Food at a great price. Try their crispy fried chicken wings, curry chicken and rock cod with garlic clay pot... you won't be disappointed. They offer select entrees with choice of 3 entrees combination for $15.95 and includes soup of the day.

Not to be confused with the Silver House across the street, this place is one of those Cantonese-style comfort-food places at a very reasonable price. They have 3-dishes for $18 or 4 for $32. All very tasty dishes done the authentic Cantonese way. There's no dimsum at this place, and it's not one of those fancy-looking seafood places. Just good... More
