This Chinatown restaurant is located in the basement of another restaurant. The food is cooked to order and the prices are very good. It looks sketchy to enter the basement but I think they rely on prices to get people in.

I would recommend this restaurant for everyone who love Chinese dishes with a reasonable price. It offers both eat-in and take away.

The chicken and vegetables, or Moo Goo Gai Pan, is very tasty. The prices are very reasonable, and the staff is friendly. They offer daily specials, some are only $3.50. You can't beat that. Don't let the fact that it's a basement restaurant discourage you.

Small family owned cafe. The food was good and filling. House fried rice and chicken on stick was enough for two people to split. Lots of items to choose from on the menu, so I asked what's popular. They said everything. They don't have very...More
