This is a very authentic, fairly scruffy Chinese restaurant. The food was excellent but the service was terrible. Our waitress didn't seem to understand much English, she brought us most of the food that we ordered, but no rice (which we had ordered), and also...More

Wednesday night Chinese. The place looks a little scruffy and dated but the food and service were very good. Huge portions be careful how many dishes you order. We went for sweet and sour and Singapore noodles. The amount defeated 2 of us.
