This place gets pretty crowded, be sure to call ahead to make a reservation. Ordered the 3 appetizer combo and smoked duck. Food was excellent with reasonable prices (especially coming from the US with the current exchange rate). Service was attentive.

We ordered pork and shrimp dumplings, green onions pancakes, long donuts, chicken and wine sauces, pork belly noodles. Dishes were all really good, service was awesome. They weren't inexpensive but the ambience, food quality and service made our lunch very satisfying.

Always a good sign when the restaurant is busy at lunch, and frequented by locals (i.e. folks of Chinese extraction in this case). Has an authentic Chinese feel to it. Dishes were quickly served -- hot and tasty. Dim sum was really good. Extensive menu.

Although I only ate her once, it was a review worthy experience. The staff was friendly and helpful in navigating the impressive menu. The wonton soup was delicious, the Black fish (forgot type) was memorable and came on a generous bed of string beans. And the shanghai dumplings were also very satisfying. Our server seemed to be focused only on... More

We visit 5-6 time per year as we live in Seattle. Our family love this restaurant and have been coming here for 15 years plus. We have tried other Shanghai style restaurants and some are very good too. Yet this place always rises to the top of our choices. We always get the pork soup dumplings as it is possibly... More

If you want to eat in you should definitely book ahead as the place was packed. I opted for takeout and it was fast and delicious. The food tasted fresh and the honey spiced beef had a diversity of flavour that complimented the Yan Chow Rice. It was a nice treat and would be an excellent spot for a large... More

We were immediately seated despite not having a reservation. The seafood we ordered was delicious. The service was attentive and the decor was clean and modern.

This place gets very busy- we went on a weekday early evening and it was packed - luckily got a small table by the door but there was soon a huge queue after us. Food wise it is mid range pricing, expect to pay around $30 per head without alcoholic drinks. But it is reasonable for the level of service,... More
