This is a go-to place for traditional, albeit Americanized, Chinese food on the edge of downtown Houston. It is a gem with dependable service. Great place for lunch during the work-week.

The restaurant was recommended by hotel staff. It was walking distance from our hotel, so we decided to give it a try. Menu is huge, and wasn't sure what to order. We decided on the house fried rice and kung pao shrimp. Both were delicious....More
