Do you like Dim Sum and traditional Cantonese dishes? Have you tried to find a place that will remind you of the good old Hong Kong spirit with the trolleys piled high with bamboo steamers pushed by young ladies of uncertain temperament where the noise levels make any normal conversation a problem? That is the reality of Dim Sum (breakfast/brunch)... More

Went to Full Kee three times in one week meeting different friends for lunch. ..It was Chinese New Year after all…. For the first lunch gathering I had roast duck on rice. This is my regular go to meal. The second lunch gathering I had the orange chicken lunch as I had not had this before and wanted something different.... More

Having enjoyed dim sum in many places, I was thrilled to discover the Full Kee one weekend...and have been back many times since. On weekends, the dim sum is circulated around the dining room on rolling metal steam carts as you sip your tea (jasmine recommended). Although there may be some language barrier occasionally, the servers have been uniformly helpful... More

Not NY China Town quality, but the dim sum is good. Besides that, we were there several times for lunch. They have good selection, some of which is difficult to find else where, like duck feet, duck tongue,and beef tendon.

Many years ago we were in Chinatown Chicago, being young, we asked shop owners the best place to eat. Unanimously they recommended Three Happiness restaurant. Well,it was great. We were introduced to chicken feet for food there. All the locals ate there. Now, we look for things served in the native land of a restaurant, and it's served us well.... More

Came here for dim sum and enjoyed the turnip cake, shrimp sui mai, shrimp in rice wraps and other assortment of food. The dim sum is tasty and simple and hits the spot each time.

I love eating at Full Kee for the genuine Asian cuisine but it's not for the faint of heart or anyone who is concerned about the decor. The food beyond the standard American food is flavourful, especially the roast duck on rice and char sui (red pork) on rice. I love the dim sum too...the little plates of food (taspas)... More

After reading previous reviews I was expecting a wonderful lunch meal BUT was very disappointed. The appearance of the restaurant was worn and not as clean as I would have preferred. The other diners were Asian so I decided to stick it out and order lunch. My friends ordered Sesame Chicken....I ordered Orange Chicken. Both came with fried rice. Neither... More

Ever since I was little, I've always visited this place from time to time. It's a humble, aging little restaurant, sitting on Horsepen Road with it's signature sign welcoming visitors from all around. Yet, The setting is nothing to brag about. It's a pretty old building now. It's small, a little cramped at times, and you can feel the years... More
