My wife and I have been regulars, devotees even, of this hidden jewel for many years. Imagine our disappointment when, in 2007 they "retired" to make way for the light rail terminus on the site of their former premises. A couple of years ago they reopened on 17th Ave/Glendale with the same delightful menu. I add that I have visited Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Shanghai numerous times. While they of course cannot offer the variety of those locales, they nonetheless have preserved the culinary art, which they offer unreservedly to their patrons. There are two menus: American "Chinese" and authentic Chinese. We mainly choose from the latter but the American menu also has its delights - skillfully and freshly prepared to order - no buffet here. Try the crispy chicken or duck, sole with scallions and ginger, walnut shrimp, HK style dumpling soup. The menu is varied and a sure sign of its appeal is the many native Chinese, who dine here. The restaurant is family run. You have to really press them for recommendations, because their palate is different to ours (e.g. bitter melon). This is a closely-guarded, secret place. Owing to their long hiatus, the clientele is more scarce than before but you always are ensured of a place and welcome. We have hosted birthday bashes here and they take it in stride. Ask for Chinese style service, where the dishes are served consecutively instead of simultaneously - it is a more enjoyable and polite way to enjoy the experience.
