The dunganess crab with special house sauce, the wu shu style glazed ribs and the Chinese broccoli with garlic are among my favorite dishes for lunch with special friends.

Clearly the best in town. Consistently. I've had dim sum, dinner parties with wine & just a few friends. Dim sum made to order. Toi shan crab modeled after iconic dish in NY. Kumu fish (on special order), walnut shrimp, the usual favorities all excellent.
