We have been coming here for years and the food is fast, filling and affordable. Service is good and #41 is our favourite. A tight fit but worth it.

The place is very simple: a dozen tables, modest decorations and your typical bland music.
On lunchtime, there is not a lot of people there, which allowed me to have a nice service from the waitress the two times I ate there. Both times, I took the N.41 which was reaaaalllly tasty and very filling (the place is obviously named after this dish because of its popularity). The owner welcomed me both times, he is really welcoming and friendly.
And, obviously, the take-out option is really appreciated.
I definitely recommend this place!

Used to loveeee this place a lot! Not really good service, waiters are not really friendly and slow respond. Great atmosphere though and the food kills me, love to go for dimsum. Fave dinner is Peking duck menu package. Was about 3-4 dishes and paid under 50$
