I went with colleagues for a business dinner and really enjoyed the food. The service was kind and attentive and the owner was very friendly and welcoming. The BBQ ribs are to die for.

Great food, great service, and Nancy Lee is the best ! She greets you at the door and makes sure your evening is perfect. As a life-long New Yorker, this is the place to go for Chinese food. You will love it!
