Had dinner here for a family celebration. Second time to visit. The first time it was really crowded and noisy. However it was the NBA finals so it was pretty quiet compared to the first time. Food was your basic Cantonese fare. Lots of choices....More

Very decent Cantonese style for food, decent portions, very good taste wise, fairly reasonable prices. Service is your typical Chinese restaurant, levels can be good and bad, all at the same time. Lunch specials are good. Parking can be a problem.

Better than average Chinese restaurant. Food was good and portions were good. Eggplant clay pot dish was very good. Fried rice was okay not too much flavor. Restaurant gets very crowded and very very loud on weekends. Service was good. Food served fairly quickly.
