This is where the local Chinese eat. Guess that says it all ...... the food is freshly cooked, and authentic. It will cater for everyone with a good range of dishes, from Dim Sum (limited, but popular plates) to the American Kung Pow Chicken! This place gets busy, especially over the weekend or holiday, but it does take reservations.

This is the real deal. So glad our resident friends took us here for dinner. The only disappointment was that they were out of rabbit, so I had to settle for a beef dish. At least I have a reason to go back the next time for the rabbit. (Because I've never had rabbit cooked Chinese style before.)

This is a restaurant specializing in food from the Szechuan province. It has a huge Chinese patronage, unusual for a place here in North Carolina. We had the always excellent hot and sour soup followed by a couple of vegetarian dishes with veggies and tofu. I doubt you'd go wrong with anything here.

Your first indication about how authentic it is should be the fact that almost everyone eating in here is Asian! Everything we have had was great, even the simple lo mein dishes. The place stays very busy either expect a wait but it is worth it!

Not all dishes are great here - but by far this is one of the more authentic Chinese cuisine restaurant that you can find in RTP. They do have several winning dishes - the crispy lamb ribs is my favourite. The seasons beans dish is nice but not great. Service here seems rather good - the service staff do smile... More

Since this was our 1st visit, we tried three favorites. Peking duck, Gen Tso chicken & green beans. We had the beans spiced up and they were the star. G Tso was OK but I missed pineapple and the sauce was sparse. Lots of garlic which I liked. Probably won't order again. The duck was tasty but I missed the... More

Yes, this is really high quality authentic food. But will you really like it? I did like it for the experience. Seems that every table was filled , but 90 percent seemed to have Chinese ancestry. The prices are too high for me, given that it offers an authentic experience rather than food "to die for". Favorite dish is double... More

This restaurant is the most authentic Chinese food we have found in the Triangle. The restaurant has been filled with native Chinese locals every time we've been there. It isn't a huge space and certainly isn't fancy or particularly full of ambiance, but it has become a favorite of ours. They have a very small selection of dim sum, and... More

This restaurant has mastered the cooking and the addition of spices to the dishes to those I can recollect of the dishes in China . Would highly recommend this restaurant vegetarian or otherwise especially if you like spicy and traditional foods

Crowded, with many Chinese diners, very pleasant and attentive wait staff rushing around. Many choices on the menu. The food was terrific, the portions ample, the prices reasonable. The noise level was pretty high with lots of people enjoying dinner and it seemed they were all talking at once.
