This place was really great in its first few years, but now it feels sort of run of the mill. At the time is was unique, but now there are many more choices in the city of this style.

The first dish was a bit flat in spices which I compensated with Sriracha but the fried rice was spot on delicious. I am impressed and this is my first time trying real Chinese food. Service was slow... More

From day one Xiao Loong was always the slightly more expensive but way better option when ordering food. Just recently a friend of mine and I ordered again enjoying the House Chicken and House Beef dishes, both with memorably good sauces.

Used to love this neighborhood treasure, when it opened we switched from our old haunt and ordered so often we had the phone number scribbled on the shelf next to the kitchen phone. The last three times we ordered in, we had to pour the hot and sour soup down the drain. It was that bad. I called each time... More

Went here on Valentines Day night, was seated without a reservation within 15 minutes. Enjoyed the House Chicken and Braised Fish of the day in Black Bean Sauce. Staff very helpful as were near by customers in offering suggestions on recommendations of menu choices.

The atmosphere was really upscale and service was great and some of the best potstickers we've had in a while. Plus the prices and portions were very decent. The kids loved it. Thanks so much for being a highlight of our trip! Definitely recommend!

It's solid, Californianized Chinese food, which I happen to like. It's less oily than most, with brighter flavors. Nice little place!
