  • "Japanese Tofu with King Mushroom" is awesome!! the tofu is sooo crispy and the sauce is delicious
  • Try and purchase one of the vests that the servers are wearing. They are holy
  • One of the best Chinese places in the city.
  • Perfect late-nite joint, open 24/7 on weekends!
  • Sizzling sirloin in sweet saki, salt and pepper squid, chi stir fry special, chicken wings and curry fish balls = heaven.... I suggest you try at least on of these dishes...
  • Pork belly, sizzling eggplant, salt n pepper Squid extra jalapenos, hot n sour soup, mango smoothie... Call it a day.
  • don't get curry spaghetti or the rolled noodles. really gross texture going on there.
  • First time here and already impressed by the decorations and special drawer with utensils built in the booth. Total awesomeness & open late!
  • Best wonton soup.
  • Clean and comfortable. Excellent egg drop soup, crab rangoon, beef with mushroom and snow peas.
  • Each table has a hidden drawer of utensils & napkins.
  • Great hours, prices, portions, & flavor! I really liked the garlic chicken fried rice & beef chow mein but next time I'll ask for extra meat.
  • Best hot & sour soup ever.
  • Salt and pepper pork chops are always satisfactory.
  • try the fukin fried rice
  • Try the fried fish filet w/sweet saki sauce. Delicious, breading is very light, sauce isn't overpowering (a very slight dip will do), comes w/a bowl of steamed rice. Order a side of chinese broccoli!
  • Love the pan fried turnip patties!
  • Awesome place, although there is no cell service to be had here
  • Curry Fishball. Enough said.
  • Late night (opens til 5am) hot spot in Chinatown. Great food, friendly staff, and your bill will be cheaper than 2 mcdonald's meals. Can't beat that.
