The service is always top notch. The soup are great. We always order several dishes and share. The dishes are very ample for sharing. If you are looking for great Chinese food this the place to go.

Just another average "Chinese" restaurant that doesn't serve anything Chinese people eat. Wonderful staff and excellent service, but the food is just your average quick, uninteresting stuff.

Very much enjoyed a light lunch at this quite large Chinese restaurant right on College Avenue. The service was excellent, the food well prepared and the nearby conversations interesting because ... it is Berkeley!
