Looking for Chinese food, we found this amazing place, they have a enormous menu, was hard to decide everything was delicious looking, vegan options weren't a problem, and the rest of food a pleasure,! If you're in the area this is a must!

My experience with Chinese restaurants is in Toronto and this was a little different. The hot and sour soup came with noodles; it was good but hard to eat. The food came quickly and was very hot. Good value as prices were reasonable.

Have been here several times. If you want something that is tasty and spicy this is the place. The Dai Ching chicken is the best, ask for extra sauce.

Although it has some Shanghai specialties it is not 100% a Shanghai experience. I don't know why i need to say at least 100 characters if I have nothing more to say.

Friends took us there. The Shanghai dishes were fairly authentic. Fish pieces in rice wine was very good, not over powered by the rice wine or too sour. The steamed/fried buns were done perfectly. The dumplings were very authentic indeed. However, there is a lack...More
