Six of us enjoyed a wonderful dinner here. We ordered 7 different items, of course it's a must have Tao Tao Beef and the Chicken salad!! The lemon chicken was just so-so but every other item was excellent, delicious, flavorful and fresh!

You've got to try this salad. It's delicious. This place reminds me of Hong Kong in the old days. Food served is really plentiful. Great place for trying lots of different dishes with friends.
