  • The jukebox rules all at this Chinatown dive bar.
  • This place is the very definition of a dive bar. Springsteen on the jukebox and Budweisers for two bucks. The Airborne Toxic Event love the sketches on napkins of the bartender behind the bar.
  • Great bar.
  • Family style dinner. Looks like Kung fu panda was here.
  • A jukebox full of classic tunes, from standards to rock anthems; a skilled bartender with stories to tell; elderly barflies who really look like theyve lived; & reasonably priced drinks. Need more?
  • Everything!!!!!
  • Sean is a swell bartender!
  • It was good but the portions were small. I guess for what you pay it was fine for a lunch special.
  • Opened 1941. American-Chinese food. Originally called Golden Pagoda, its building is a 5-tiered pagoda.
  • Great decor and good food.
  • Never come during Chinese New Year. Crazy wait time and not enough staff.
  • Best place to hide after a Dodger's game. Also, jukebox is ACE!
  • Part of a Chris Farley movie Beverly Hills Ninja was filmed here
  • Came here for the lunch specials with friends & the price & quality of food was amazing. Our server was very attentive & friendly, this place is a must.
  • Bartender is an ass. Go upstairs but know what you want to drink.
  • Great place for a tasty but quick and cheap lunch!!
  • Excellent chow mein here!
  • LA Weekly's Best of LA 2010 pick - Best Bit of Chinese Kitsch!
