The menu is what brought my wife and me here for lunch on a miserable day. Clientele was 95% Asian, always a good sign. Ambiance and service just like Chinatown in Manhattan: not a place that makes you want to linger, food comes out fast, when the kitchen finishes a dish, so appetizers are just as likely to come out...

The food was fresh and very tasty and big portions. Staff not very friendly. The bill came and had the 15% gratuities already added - as the bill was not checked another 20% tip was added!!! Mistake - the staff laughed about it! Most likely wondered about the "stupid" customer. It will not be repeated! Be warned!

This relatively new restaurant in the exciting downtown area of Jersey City, across from the main branch of the Post Office, may finally be the Chinese restaurant aficionados have been waiting for. I've been to this restaurant five times with friends. The ambiance is fine, it is on the main floor of an old bank. The staff is friendly and... More

We live on the same block and always ignored this place, but finally tried it. On a rainy Saturday night we were the only customers. The interior was beautiful and clean, far better than 90% of the Chinese restaurants I have seen. The service was very attentive, the menu was small for a Chinese place but larger than nearby American... More

Bar was full and they had one bartender. They ran out of decent beers due to a previous event. Food was way below average.

I have never eaten in the restaurant, only takeout. It is called Grand Banks because it is located in an old bank, the office is even in a giant bank vault in the lobby. The Old Fashioned Won Ton soup is awesome if you are feeling a little under the weather. I would recommend this place for takeout.

I've tried all the Chinese restaurants in Jersey City and Hoboken and this one always comes out on top. The food just can't be beaten. I've always used them as a take out place and they've always delivered on time and always got it right! The roasted pork appetizer and the Crispy Duck main course are incredible and even their...

We wanted to order a drink and waitress told us "We don't have to many selections "and left. Then came back and said, Do you want wine? She didn't offered options. She never gave us the appetizer either or the miso soup that comes with the food. At the end she gave us the bill without asking if we wanted... More

this place could stand to get a bit of a facelift. The food was not incredibly impressive. I ordered a pad thai that was sub par at best and a spicy tuna roll that was pretty decent.
