Please refer to the person's review of July 3rd. They got it right! The place was empty, the food unappealing, uninteresting, and bland.

Was expecting a lot, got rather bland Chinese food. Heard a patron say must be good food since Asian people eating here...but Asian patrons appeared to be the minority there that day. Has flashy signage, open late, lobster promo, etc...Got the hype, but not the flavorfull food with the mouthwatering aroma I'm used to at the other great Chinese restaurants(Chicago/San Fran/New York chinatowns). Staff was eager to take order but that was the extent. I'd suggest roll the dice elsewhere if u can.

Authentic Chinese cuisine - try to order out of your comfort zone. We tried the cold jellyfish dish and were surprised. Delicious! Peking duck was excellent. The clam was just OK. The pork belly dish was of course full of fat but oh so good! All the dishes we ordered came out very hot (temperature) so very nice. Come early - parking could be a problem at this little neighborhood restaurant.

Just recently started ordering from them again, it's been a while. The lunch specials are GREAT. Good quality and big portions, I can have 1 lunch over 2 or 3 meals. We ordered chow mein with white meat chicken and it came with huge pieces of chicken, we were impressed. Prices are reasonable, one of our new favorites.
