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,...More

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!...More
