Good food - ask for the "Chinese menu" for additional interesting items. Attentive waiter offering many specials and insights into what is going on in the kitchen. I was here with a Japanese business group and was struck by the efficiency of the staff. A good place to stop for lunch or dinner.

Good choice of classic and some unique offerings (fried octopus, for example). Typical lunch menu is between $8 and $14, more for dinner. Service can be hit or miss: either fast and terrific, or you are ignored.

This is a high-end Asian Bistro, unlike other Chinese or Japanese restaurants that one is accustomed to. They have a great selection of Chinese, Japanese, Thai and other popular Asia dishes, and do a nice job both in cooking and presentation.

A friend of mine brought me here in hopes of enjoying a delicious meal. She had been here several times before and wanted to share her favorite fish dish with a the rest of us. The restaurant was semi-busy in that there were a few tables occupied but not enough "activity" to keep the servers excessively busy (some were standing... More

Was so looking forward to dining at this place...but unfortunately it was so disappointing! The place itself is Okish for dining, but the food was terrible...everything we ordered was swimming in some kind of liquid. Apparently they are not really able to understand what you are ordering and give you something completely different!.....and when it comes, and you tell them... More

This is one restaurant that was a blemish on Newport area in Jersey City. I visited this place about four times and the experience deteriorated each time. The staff doesnt converse in english and thats a pain especially when you dont understand chinese. The staff doesnt look trained at all and there were times when food and drinks were spilled...

My wife, two children and I attended a baptism party for our nephew's son in November 2015 at this restaurant. There were perhaps 80 people at the party seated at tables of about 10 people each. The meal got off to a slow start in the sense that the appetizers were mediocre. This consisted of three dumplings, a spring roll,... More

I was hoping for more when co-workers talked it up. I ordered General Tso (hard to go wrong with that) and broccoli & garlic. Good thing I didn't have to talk to a lot of people after lunch. I was overall pretty disappointed and didn't finish anything.

Even though the reviews on Trip Advisor were pretty average, thinking American's taste on Chinese food might be different from Asian, we went any way. We were glad we did. The Chinese food here is very authentic and well prepared. The price is reasonable in this hotel area. We really enjoyed our dinner.
