Black bean clam is very salty while the Shanghai fried noodle taste bland with few strip of pork. Have to put the sauce from clam to balance the favor. Kind of disappointed.

Service was not really fast or friendly. Food was just okay. The atmosphere was cool though. We had the Shanghai Dumplings which were bland tasting by the pork inside was tender. We also had soup noodles and they were actually pretty good.
