“Decent Food”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 January 2014

They have a great variety of food. I ordered rice noodle with shrimp but they did not have the rice noodle in hand and had to eat chow fun instead. Chow fun with shrimp was okay. My husband ordered squid with Chinese broccoli and it lacks taste and it was full of broccoli. I think broccoli did not cook properly. Squid and broccoli were both very hard to chew. Steamed vegetable dumplings were awesome. The restaurant was very cold btw.

“hong kong cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2013

My wife and I enjoyed this Chinese restaurant.
It is family owned where the husband and wife do the cooking and the serving.
The variety of food was excellent.
Everything is cooked to order using only the freshest ingredients.
Our part of 4 ordered several dishes and not one bit of food was left to take home.

“Still experimenting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 February 2012

I'm used to spicy Chinese food so you have to know not to expect spicy food here. It's more like down-home food that my mom (originally from Taiwan while dad's from Hong Kong) would make. My family loves the salt pork - boneless pork rib in a salt n pepper type style - dry rub. We tried the roast pork with tofu on advice from a restaurant review and my daughter loved the sauce. Again, nothing special but does remind me of home cooking and is definitely worth another try. We're still trying out the different dishes at this restaurant to see which ones we like the best, so far we have the one pork dish. The chinese brocooli was okay, could use more garlic. The hot n sour soup is pretty good but if you don't like the smell of canned bamboo shoots, don't order it. Also the restaurant is pretty small so big parties aren't recommended. And they have a nice selection of Chinese drinks, similar to what you could get a Chinese grocery store - guava juice, coconut soda. A great treat for adventurous kids.
