We wanted a place in Chinatown that was reasonable in price and authentic Chinese. There were several local eating there which was a good indication. The food was good, the price was good and we had good service, Nothing fancy, but a good dinner at a reasonable price. Dinner for 3 kids and 2 adults was $45.00 +/-.

If you're looking for table cloths, fancy dishes, and an American style restaurant filled with tourists, this isn't the place for you. If you want to eat really good Chinese food, and sit among local Chinese people, you've come to the right place. We ordered 7 different dinners to eat family style, and one was better than the next. Yes, you have to walk through the kitchen to get to the bathroom, but that just helps you become one with the people and adds to the experience.

Had to walk through their kitchen to the washroom, which is a health code violation. The trip tevealed other violations. Having said that, the food was good and cheap, so whatevs.

We had a lunch special. It was a bit bland. I definitely recommend going to the "restroom" behind the kitchen before ordering. If, after seeing the back area, you still want to order some food, then go right ahead!

We ate here for lunch one of the days we were in Chinatown. The interior feels like an old cafeteria and the service was efficient if not overly friendly. The stand out item however was the Salt & Pepper wings, which is one of their signature dishes. They brought out a large plate of the wings and they were super hot and crispy with a ton of flavor. We still talk about those wings, and when we go back we'll definitely be getting more. The rest of the meal was fine but nothing outstanding, typical chinese fare. So, if you're in the area and like a good wing (by the way, these weren't very spicy at all, more salty than anything else but in a good way) then I'd recommend this place.
