After more than 30 years in Chinatown, this "understated" “little” Cantonese is "just as good now as it was then" and it's "hard to make a bad choice" from the "Americanesque" menu; service is usually “pleasant” , and "shockingly" low prices and BYO help “lighten the mood.”

Love this place. Best food. I was full but I couldn't stop eating.

This is my favorite restaurant in Chinatown. I almost always get the same two things because I love them so much here. One real standout is the salt baked squid. Yum! The other is the crispy tofu with crabmeat. Delicious! Big balls of tofu that are crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside, like a mild cheese. Broccoli and chunks of crab meat with an egg-based sauce finish the dish up. It's unusual and really good. All the other things I have had here - like the steamed dumplings, Chinese broccoli with garlic sauce, etc. - have all been great. It is a modest, not fancy, local kind of place. It is my Chinatown comfort food - particularly for those two dishes!
