Some of the most fresh and tasty Chinese food in the bay. Salt and pepper fish is a must order. It is so good that it tastes great out of the microwave the next day! Service is great. Prices are surprisingly affordable...

This restaurant has good Chinese food that covers the gamut -- spicy or bland -- however you like it. The eggplant dish is great! Nice wait staff who are there to serve. Very affordable if you're on a budget.

Be prepared--the decor is tired and simple. But the food is fresh and fabulous, perfectly seasoned. Service is good and it's friendly. Dry seasoned string beans were outstanding the the Moo Shu pork was the best ever. The last time I ate there, with 2...More
