From the moment we walked in, we were happy to be here. Warm and friendly atmosphere. We shared the War Won Ton Soup and the Zwai fish with bok chop over rice, so flavorful! As others mentioned, good portions as well.

A round room full of bric-a-brac and good solid food. Hot and sour soup delicious as is the egg drop soup. Egg rolls fried to perfection with thin wrappers. Steamed rice excellent. Overall a pleasant friendly place with good staff.
