Poor Quality, Wierd Setting, Bland Food – First of all, the setup of the restaurant was strange. The first time I was there for the buffett and they seated me in what I consider a "basement." You are literally below street level. The food was mediocre at best and the service was average.
I decided to give the place a second chance a month or so later when I ordered take-out. Besides making me wait an additional 20 minutes after I was told over the phone that my dishes would be ready in 15, the portions were small. The food was also very bland for my taste.
Could be the best in St. louis – This place was recommended to me by a friend and let me tell you, it does not receive enough credit. We got there just before dinner time and the place was empty but it filled up fast as the time approached 5pm. Most of the customers were of asian descent which tells you right there that the place is authentic. The service is fast and very pleasant. Great menu (both in English and Chinese). The prices are pretty cheap ranging from a $1.20 soups, $6 dishes, $13 seafood to $12 family dinners.
Don't expect a glamarous place, it is clean and friendly but do expect a really, really good food.
Best Authentic Chinese Food in St. Louis – For a place that makes such wonderful and authentic chinese dishes, I am surprised to find lack of praises and review infos on the web. The only reason I can think of is that for this place, it is recommended you go with chinese people. You will get a separate chinese-only menu full of house specialties that are beyond comparison to your ordinary beef w/ broccoli types of dishes.
The seating is mostly prompt, servers are friendly, and the food is definitely one of the best chinese food in all of St. Louis. The price is cheap for the food you get and atmostphere is very family friendly. It is best if you have between 4-6 in your party so you can do family-style and sample more dishes, and still get plenty of portions each. Reservation is necessary for large groups (8+).
