Very fun, lively place. The carts come at you fast and furious, but that's part of the fun. Never had anything that wasn't delicious, perfectly seasoned, and nicely presented. Highly recommended.

The seafood in this place is delicious. One can overzealous with all the choices. The house crab dish is a must (enough for 4 people).

I have been coming here for 15 years, off and on. Get there at 12:30pm on a weekday and have a nice, leisurely lunch. Sliced duck with orange sauce, sticky rice in lotus leaves, chicken-filled baked buns, Chinese spinach in oyster sauce are really good....More
