My mother in law likes their roast duck. Whenever we visit New York, we have to take one home for her. The place is not big. They have about 15 two person tables close together. A typical delicious noodle or rice dish is about $7-8 dollars. A whole roast duck take out is $22.

Toilets were disgusting with wee and poo on the floor and next door to where the food was so we decided to leave and not eat the manager started shouting at us... More

We come here together, alone, with family, with friends. It is good real Chinese food, large servings, good prices. It has a real buzz, and we love it. It isn't "smart", but that is part of its rationale. You can eat quickly or linger. It has veracity; long may it continue.

I have never eaten such terrible char siew wan tan noodle in my life. A very unpleasant trip to this so called "restaurant". I wonder if there's a way to rate -1 star. There's no other word to describe this restaurant but simply the word "terrible". One more thing: If you expect to have an official receipt, it will never... More

I was looking forward to great Chinese food while in china town. Reviews here for this place were good, and we did see a lot of locals eating here. The place is a hole in the wall, nothing impressive at all but I wasn't going to let that deter me from possibly getting something seriously yummy. Unfortunately it was a... More

Huge portions, good hot food. No ambiance, but what do you expect in China Town. Friendly staff, good service.
