If you like seafood, this is the place for you. Inexpensive and great authentic Chinese food awaits you here. Parking can be difficult, because of the limited space. We arrived at 11:30 on Sat. for lunch, and there was no problem. But when we left, it was packed.

Of course we had to have the signature house special crab. We paid $30.00 for a 3 lb. crab. They charged us $9.99/lb.(market price). It was excellent! Was very sweet, and easy to eat. Just a little messy. I liked the way that it was prepared with lots of garlic bits.

We also ordered the squid with black bean sauce ($5.95), and the Seafood hot pot with to-fu($7.95) from their great lunch menu. Lots to choose from, and the portions are very generous. All includes soup(light beef& veg. soup), and a huge pot of rice, and tea. Everything was so delicious, and well prepared. I've dined in Hong Kong, and this is just as good.

Excellent service! The servers and managers are constantly checking on you, by replacing dirty plates, or refilling the water glasses. Very clean and cozy place. This is truly my favorite new Chinese restaurant. Can't wait to go back!

This very affordable Chinese seafood restaurant serving geat seafood Chinese style is very popular with the Chinese clientele, which is always a good sign, always look out for such places.
During the weekend better come early, or make a reservation, since it fills up very fast.
The menu is bilingual English-Chinese with a lot of pictures, pictures of a lot of dishes are displayed on the walls.
They have live lobsters, crabs, shrimps, fish etc. available, these are priced per lbs., you can have them prepaired any way you like, when in doubt the waiter can recommend a style for you. The service is fast, even when busy.
As usual in Chinese restaurants, you come here for the food, not for the atmosphere or the trappings, and the food is fantastic!
Highly recommended!

The crab also comes as ginger and scallion. $7/lb. 21 for the crab can't be beat. All the seafood is fresh. Pictures and prices on the walls so don't be afraid if you do not speak the language. been here last year and twice in the past week.

This is the first time in here, 'cause it was hard to find parking before, thanks for the bad economy, I parked right in front. I ordered steamed fresh fish,clam and mixed mushroom soup, and stir fried vegie, they are all impressive, not salty or oily. Service was good and the price was very reasonable too. They close late, can easily satisfy your mid-nite craving,
