Let's start with the food itself: We started with Wonton soup with pork. The "pork" tasted more like rat, though. Then the torture continued with Chicken and shrimp over fried rice, where the rice looked to be days old and the chicken and shrimp were...More

Five generations of my family have been coming to this restaurant, since the 1970s. I grew up loving their steamed dumplings, beef chow fun, shrimp with lobster sauce, and so much more. Every Chinese restaurant I have visited in the US ever since is a...More

We really love this restaurant. Fresh seafood, great lobster, and good lo mein. The sweet and sour shrimp are amazing. While the beef lo mein is good, we've noticed over the years that they have become very cheap with the beef. Maybe three or four...More
