Reviewed 18 March 2018

This was the first time we have eaten there and it will be the last. Coming from up north where we can get great Chinese food we were disappointed in Ft. Myers. We have tried several places and none have been good. Husband ordered beef with broccoli and the meat was tough and the gravy/sauce was odd tasting. I had veggies in lobster sauce which was terrible with no flavor at all. Staff was not friendly or attentive at all. Was not cheap for what they served. My husbands meal came with an egg roll which was very dry and hard. Overpriced for the quality of food.

We made reservations, as we knew it would be busy for dinner.
We started with chicken wings, which were delicious. We also ordered General Tao chicken, and my husband was impressed that there was not too much batter on the white meat pieces of chicken. We were allowed to choose the heat level for this dish. We chose medium and found it good for our taste. The stir fried beef and Chinese broccoli (gai lan) was perfectly done. We also had panfried noodles with beef, chicken, barbecue pork and shrimp. There was also a nice assortment of vegetables including Shanghai bok choy. It was amazing!
My favorite ‘go to’ for Chinese food.

Very good dim sum. Not as good as Boston Chinatown, but very good. Shrimp with tofu dumplings were excellent. Lotus leaf with sticky rice was good. Shrimp steamed buns ok. Spare ribs not good. Pan fried pork dumplings were average. This was our first time there. We will go back and order from the lunch menu after “season” is over. Too much traffic !

I have more than my share of opinion on Chinese food in the USA, after numerous trips to China, HK, and Taiwan for work. This place was a pleasant surprise to me. I had eater there some years ago, and been disappointed, but the management has changed, and this meal was very good. I note that the dim sum could be better, but I suspect ordering Dim Sum (a breakfast food) in the evening, may be the cause.
