Good quality basic Chinese food in a convenient spot. Fried dumplings and egg drop soup are excellent.

I was surprised how much business it appeared this place was getting after I tried the food. The phone kept ringing off the hook so I took it as a reassuring sign. Much to my surprise, the food was incredibly bland and drenched in toasted sesame oil. It was odd. The egg rolls were big, wonton soup was good for... More

Just awful. Had been here and it never disappointed. Today it was like eating at another restaurant. Our favorite dumplings were soupy and soaked in garnished green onions. The basil chicken was dry and the shrimp Hunan was tasteless. Did they switch owners or chefs because I used to love this place. There food was always fresh today it seemed... More

Traditional Cantonese menu and attentive service makes this place a winner. Exceptionally value priced menu adds to the experience as does the complementary carafe of wine served at the table. All in all we had a very good dinner well served by an exceptionally pleasant staff. Definitely worth the return visit.

We walked by several times and saw that it was always busy, so we enjoyed some excellent Chinese food. They have all the standard-issue dishes, but some great specialties too...Szechuan dumplings in spicy oil were a standout...so was the eggplant. When we sat down, they brought a carafe of wine, compliments of the house...a nice touch. We finished that...they brought... More

Especially good for lunch. Good Chinese food. No MSG ever. Always fresh. Best pan fried dumplings anywhere. Very very inexpensive.

Even though it was a busy Saturday evening, I was seated quickly, the order taken quickly, and the food served quickly. There was free wine with the meal, which was a nice touch. The food was plentiful and of good quality and the prices were were good value.

I have been going here for years. They have reasonable prices for both dinner and for the lunch specials. In the evening you get free white wine with your meal. I especially like the green beans and the cold sesame noodles. You can also get brown rice with your meal which I enjoy. Some times you have to wait for... More

Upper West Side
Nestled between Central Park and the Hudson River, the Upper West Side offers iconic architecture and a quiet, residential respite from the buzzing energy of downtown. Along Central Park West are many of the city’s most iconic apartment buildings, as well as the American Museum of Natural History, which has been welcoming visitors to its historic exhibit halls for over 140 years. Culture fans will love Lincoln Center, home to some of the world’s best opera, dance, film, and theatre performances, all centrally located around a beautiful fountain. Spanning the entire length of the Upper West Side, Riverside Park is ideal for a long, leisurely stroll in a quiet green space.
