The place is always packed which is a testament to the food and service. The wonton soup, sea bass with green beans is an eternal favorite. You simply can't go wrong about this place. Try it and you will be a believer.

We had a couple different dumplings and they were great. All our meals were good too. I got the black pepper steak and it was awesome.
