We visited this place on the strength of the reviews of Trip advisor and were not disappointed. In the heart of Chinatown this place has an authentic feel. Nothing fancy but just well cooked food. We had the deluxe menu for $14 which included shrimps with fried rice, sweet and sour pork and Mongolian beef. The beef was especially good. I liked it that they didn't skimp on the shrimps either. The restaurant was pretty full on the Tuesday evening that we went but we got a table right away. The service was fast and efficient. A good choice for the stomach and the pocket book.

My cousin wanted Chinese food and found this on Yelp. Other reviews were good. We ordered spring rolls (mediocre at best), and a chicken, sausage clay pot and rice. We were glad we hadn't ordered anything else. The clay pot was supposed to be chicken..but it was chewy, and didn't really have any chicken flavor. Rubbery. Just no real flavor in the dish. As it got close to 9:00 p.m., the employees were eating at a big table, and we were forgotten.
Other people may have enjoyed it. However, it was the most disappointing meal of our trip. We SO regretted having chosen this place.
Go somewhere else, anywhere else.

We were introduced to this un assuming place by our Chinese friends. It's right on Grant street in the middle of touristy Chinatown. But to our great surprise it was full of Chinese people and we were the only non Chinese people there. I loved it! Our friends orders tons of great food. The place is a bit dingy, a bit dusty, very real HK restaurant. Full of great Clay pot dishes you can order....... Well that was then..... We were there last week and now there are tons of white folks and lots of tourists. I guess our secret is out!!!! But food still good and prices are still reasonable....... Go and have some good Hong Kong style Chinese food...... Delicious!

Fantastic Chinese food. Authentic for sure, pricing is good and good is all cooked fresh. My girlfriend and I fear we may be ruined to go home to Wisconsin and have Chinese food now. Tough to find but put in the effort - you won't be disappointed. Also, did have local from Chinatown coming in it seemed, which I typically take as a sign of a good place to eat.
