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
