We ordered quite a few dishes. The Salt and Pepper Squid was passable, but not by much. The Korean style Beef Ribs were inedible as they were so tough. The two chicken dishes arrived with the same sauce on them, which was unbelievable. The Chicken...More

It's a go-to restaurant for me for several reasons: friendly, prompt service, EXCELLENT food served quickly, and piping hot. Washrooms almost pathologically CLEAN. What's not to like?

Here you can have dim sum, hot pot or buffet. The restaurant is huge and busy but service is attentive. The quality of food is top notch. I love visiting the Koi fish on the way in. Always leave feeling very satisfied.

Do you mean msg as in food, or do I have Messenger? I do not think the restaurant uses msg. As to Messenger, I do not have that.
