Its a relatively old set up but has withstood the test of time, having been written up when it first opened in the early 1990s. If you have eaten good chinese food in Hong Kong, then, this is as close as you can get to that in Durham and Chapel Hill area. Unlike most chinese eateries where its very salty... More

The owners are involved - they offer a good choice for semi traditional Chines. Would like to see more traditional Cantonese options and less American Chines. Be aware, not a place for ambiance, the fresh dishes makes up the difference.

This is an unprepossessing but awesome restaurant, very authentic Chinese, lots of Chinese customers. They offer Dim Sum (if you have never tried it - DO!) - little plates of 2-4 pieces of close to bite-sized deliciousness! Most include shrimp in some form, so if you have shell fish allergies let them know - they are happy to specially prepare... More

Wow! What an experience. We called in an order to go while staying in Durham. We ordered chicken and broccoli. The chicken looked like carved turkey. They don't use the traditional brown sauce. It was more white. We didn't eat the food. When we were waiting for our order we stood at the counter. It had junk all over it,... More

I was so excited when looking for a lunch venue and stumbling across this place - it had a full dim sum menu during the week! No cart service, you just picked from the list. Disappointed that the pork bun and egg custards were a weekend special only. Food was pretty good! I tried the sesame tofu, shrimp dumplings were... More

This the best option we have found within NC that offers authentic Chines food. It's prepared fresh, they offer authentic dishes and overall a great option for Chines food. If you want great food, this is the place - if your looking for ambiance it will fall short.

Do NOT be scared off from the looks of this place. This is the only Chinese restaurant that I have found in the whole state that I will eat Chinese food. Those whom like dim sim they have it every day, but the carts are only on the weekend days. Try the Hong Kong noodles with roasted pork, or the... More

I called them ahead of time telling them that my family and I would be late to the place. They said it was okay and that we could be seated to eat. When we got their the people didn't even welcome us, instead they rushed us to our table and told us to order. They didn't even have the decency... More

A very good (tho not great) Chinese restaurants specializing in dim sum. Their steamed dishes are excellent, as are some of their special dishes like stuffed eggplant or bok choy sauteed in garlic. The service is good. Nothing fancy just good.
