Foursquare Tips

  • It may be a hike for some, but you wont get better dim sum unless you fly to China. Now THAT's a hike. Don't be afraid to try new things, everything is delicious here.
  • Peking duck, duck soup and noodles.
  • Peaking duck is done right here
  • Authentic Cantonese food
  • The sweet & sour pork is authentic, unlike any of the greasy fried nuggets doused in orange syrup that you find in take-out restaurants. Here you get lightly coated pork chunks in a flavorful sauce.
  • Tried & tested recommendations: House Special Garlic Chicken, Sweet & Sour Pork, Beef w/ Ginger & Scallion, House Special Fried Rice, Mixed Vegetables w/ Lo Mein, House Special Jumbo Shrimp w/ Walnuts
  • The beef with ginger and scallions is delicious and has hints of five spice seasoning, a traditional Asian spice.
  • This hidden gem serves up genuine Chinese food in a clean and comfortable venue. No need to trek into NYC! This place rivals Chinatown establishments.
  • This is the real deal. It's an authentic Cantonese restaurant serving up delicious fare, unlike the numerous take-out that cater to people looking for Americanized egg roll and noodle dishes.
  • Waiting to be seated for dim sum. More to come.
  • Check your receipt for extra items that you never purchased
  • We enjoy the prawns and broccoli, best around.
  • Favorite dishes are the stream yellow custard rolls and the bowl of sweet dofu. Very affordable dishes during dim sum hours.
  • Everything is great, love the Chinatown Style wonton soup!
  • Get the Kyoto Spare Ribs "Ging dou pai kuat." If they do not understand, show them you want this: (Hopefully, your phone has East-Asian language support.) Sweet and delicious!
  • The best all around Chinese Food
  • Service stink and insects in dishes.
  • Lunch Menu is good value for the price and is extensive.
  • I love the stir fried silver fish delight and roast chicken with preserved mustard green.
  • Shrimp and Scrambled Egg...don't be scared.
