Upper Eastsiders who “don’t want to schlep to Chinatown” depend on this “reliable” vet for “tasty” dim sum and other “solid” Chinese classics ferried by “efficient” servers; the decor gets mixed responses, but there's always “speedy delivery.”

Love it every time! So accommodating with families and disabled adults. Love their crispy lemon chicken and sesame beef which we had today. Sautéed green beans also seasoned and cooked to perfection.

The worst Chinese food I have ever eaten. I am Chinese Cantonese. I grew up with typical Chinese food especially dim sum. We 2 adults and 1 kid(21 months) had dinner on Monday night. We ordered fried dumplings and crispy garlic chicken. The dumplings are messy. It seemed someone had eaten. I'm sure these are typical frozen dumplings sold in Chinese supermarket. Chicken has lots of soy sauce. It seemed the chicken was heated in microwave again. In addition, the portion is very small compared with restaurants in Chinatown and Flushing. The restaurant is very low-graded. When we checked out, the waiter immediately took back my signed receipt and looked the receipt. I was sure he just checked my tips. This was very impolite and rude. I felt very uncomfortable. Never never never come again.

We loved the food in the restaurant as well as the service. This is a keeper! The pea showed tá with garlic were prepared to perfection, the pan fried noodles with shrimp and vegetable was the best we have ever had, in taste and presentation- absolutely perfection. My husband had moo shu pork with pancakes extra 🌶 spicy- it was served and pancakes prepared by his side. We have a new favorite restaurant near home!
