After a “night at the clubs or casino" , fans say this low-key Chinese noodle house is “the spot" in Chinatown for "fresh" , "tasty" grub made from "quality ingredients" , like the "salt-and-pepper-fried" anything; "attentive" waiters mind the tables, but some say the kitchen’s pace ranges "from high-speed to your slow dial-up."

Not even 1 star. This place just nice to their own kind. Just give compliment and snack to certain people like white or Chinese. And so rude just because we don't know the menu and ask they don't like to answer and think we stupid. We come because we want to try and know some Chinese because we are not Chinese. But their service so s%&*!!!

Inappropriate waiting arrangements. People can come in and stand in front of someone waiting for an hour and be seated. For this reason me and my party seated ourselves after seeing this and they had the nerve to kick us out. Their place is infested with bugs and good luck not seeing a cockroach run across your table or the wall. Not worth the hype. Good for drunks I’m assuming.

This place has the best salt and pepper chicken. We usually come here late at night since they are open until 4am. The service is not like that of a 4 star restaurant but once you've been here enough you know how the system works. You will get your food super fast and you will get your water refilled. If you need anything else then just give them a holla.
