Five of us shared four plates and two appetizer. Pretty good dumplings, decent spring rolls. Liked the braised duck. Loved beef with broccoli - tender meat, broccoli cooked just right. Reasonably authentic. Recommended, at least for lunch. Huge portions - split an order and share...More

Bursting with an amazing array of sights, sounds, and
smells on every block, a visit to Chinatown feels like
entering a different world. It’s a colorful spectacle
that gets even more crowded on weekends, when families
