Best fried rice I've ever eaten!! The service was friendly and fast, and the prices were very reasonable. Plus, you received a lot of food for your money!

loved the flavors but the meat in the the chicken asparagus soup was only two pieces. Husband ordered a chicken with brown sauce and vegtables which was delish. Not hugh portions. The real treat was the siphoned coffee. Got Rays blend with half and half .....the real treat was watching it made. Small place in Chinatown but I would go there again if for nothing else the coffee....even over starbucks which I love.

We had their Ice tea to drink. It tasted creamy, a nice surprise and relaxing after walking the city all morning. Then followed with shrimp spring rolls & vegetarian hot sour soup. The spring rolls were served on an Asian styled porcelain tray with it's own sauce well. Very stylish.They were crispy and light the best I've ever tasted anywhere. The soup was good too. The entrees followed. I had Walnut Shrimp. The walnuts were crunchy & candied in a yummy sauce over the best prawns, broccoli and brown rice. The prawns were large and succulent. The brown rice was cooked to perfection. Not sticky & not too dry, but perfect. Our other entree was sweet & sour chicken. It was very good too. The cookies served afterward were more like a wonderful pastry than the expected cookie at the end of an American Asian meal. They were shaped like a sea shell and dipped half way in dark or white chocolate with sprinkles & melted in your mouth.

Their coffee making apparatus was unique and fun to watch. This is a small shop. They are very friendly here. It was a very nice lunch, wish I had had room to taste their dumplings.
