Great food and prompt service with a smile. Order the green beans with chicken.
We had a great meal here. Great prices and quality food.
Husband and I went looking for true Shanghai food. Ordered the 5-spice sole fillet, and it was amazing. Fillet was cut into strips and battered and fried. It was light and pillowy. You could not tell where the batter ended and the fish started. The seasonings were in the batter. The dish came with strips of pepper, onions and ginger, but no sauce. Did not need sauce. Very flavorful. Pork dumplings (bao) were very tasty! Husband ordered chicken with black beans and chow fun noodles. Also very good, but much more subtle in flavor than black bean dishes at other Chinese restaurants. Prices were appropriate: Sole $15, chicken $10, pork dumplings $7. Would definitely recommend. (Have not tried the buffet.)
I've been going there with my family for years. Our favorite dishes are peking duck (two ways: Flour tortilla wrapped crispy skin, and stir-fry with green beans, yum!), 5-spice squid, Steamed Pork Bao (best in town!), and I can't remember the name of the last dish, I think it's call Lion's Head with Vegetable. Don't worry, it doesn't involve eating exotic animals. It's actually large pork meatballs simmer with napa cabbage, bamboo shoots, and shiitake mushroom. Very flavorful. Our experience there have always been pleasant. They are quite authentic, but you do have to know what to order
Have been coming here for over 15 years - consistantly exceptional service and quality of food.
