I don't plan to return. Service was bad. There was an error with our order. Took forever to get served. Food is mediocre. Wonton soup was tasteless. No atmosphere.

FANTASTIC FOOD. Everything we tried was delicious. Great service! Celebrated a birthday even the cake was out of this world. This is the 3rd time we visit since we started coming to NY and it never disappoints. Love the atmosphere!
