Even if it doesn't live up to the hype, you will enjoy the frendley service, reasonable prices, and satisfactory food.

The signs claiming this restaurant to be "Oakland's best Chinese food" attracted us into this friendly neighborhood restaurant. It was surprisingly busy on this Thursday night.

We always order for pick up. The restaurant itself doesn't offer much ambiance for me. It's a little outdated, and just slightly sad. The food however is inexpensive and good! The hot and sour food is my favorite when I am feeling sick. It's spicy...More

I love this restaurant. It has been a favorite place for several years. Depending on the crew that's working, I don't even need a menu they know what I'm going to order! The staff is friendly and super efficient! Parking is a nightmare. Be prepared...More
