The food was so salty. I told the waitress/owner about it. She basically blame it on the cook. The price is high for a small place like this. Portion was average. Then when I tried to pay with credit card, the owner asked if I...More

The steamed broccolini with oyster sauce is an especially pleasant surprise and the perfect little steamed pork dumplings are a delicate treat. The many variations on rice (don't miss the congee !) are surprising in number and quality. If you seek something a little different...More

This a great authentic Chinese restaurant. Been to this place over 5 times. The owners are very friendly. They have a huge selection to chose from and everything I've ever tried has been wonderful. I keep going back!
