  • Addicting, awesome Fried Squid!
  • Going for dinner? Start with the shrimp and scallop wonton soup. For $8.50 this is a #BIGBOWL of hot, flavorful soup with lots of seafood, chewy wonton and choi sum.
  • Ginger Lobster - very very tasty and only $11!
  • Cheap and tasty Chinese food. Not drowned in sugar like most Americanized Chinese food either. Awesome place.
  • This place has all the hallmarks of a good Chinese restaurant: fast, cheap, and good. Best $6 rice plates in the area. Spicy fried tofu is awesome.
  • Their "Spicy Fried Tofu" is a must try! Melts in your mouth, not in your plate.
  • The best sesame shrimp I've had in a while.
  • Lunch specials are about $1-$2 off
  • An extensive "usual suspects" menu. Cheap lunch plates. Best reason to come here is to eat selections from the many live seafood tanks. Think crab, lobster, whole fish, and squid.
  • East Bay Express recommends Bay Fung Tong Style Crab (or Squid or Scallops)
  • BBQ pork fried rice
  • The chow mein was good. If you like spicy, ask them to make it spicy
  • Go for the seafood dishes, that's their specialty there. Clam with mustard greens soup, any fresh fish steamed with ginger and scallions.
  • Cannot beat their family set menus. Great place for large family dinners. Food quality always consistently decent.
  • Love the fried rice.
  • Very authentic Chinese food. Great eggplant. The sizzling rice soup with seafood was disappointing though. Barely any seafood!
  • Their chow mein is great!
  • The mixed vegetable wonton soup is great cold/flu comfort food!!
  • Tsingtao beer
  • BBQ Pork Fried Rice
