Everything that was ordered at my table was really tasty. The scallops, shrimps, watercress & green beans, salt n pepper fish...everything was bang-on. It's nice to have authentic Chinese food because I find that's hard to come by.

The first time we went to Full Key with another couple, every seat in the small dining area was full. So, this time we decided at the last minute to do take-out. It was about 7:45pm on a beautiful spring-like Wed evening in June when...More
