After passing by and reading over the menu many times, my son and I recently decided to give it a try. The menu sounded great, and the prices looked tempting...Fairly crowded, with a mixed bunch of diners (including people of Asian ethnicity, which seems to indicate to some diners whether or not a place is good). I ordered Cantonese style lo mein with Seafood---the insert said Squid, Shrimp, Scallops, just what I was in the mood for---when it came out it was 3 medium shrimp, several nice pieces of squid, ONE half-sliced scallop, and some fake crab meat and a bunch of sliced fish-cake. A big disappointment, as I was hoping it'd be sorta like the "trio" seafood you get in other area joints, especially as it did specifically point out the three types to be included. My order of shrimp dumplings was nothing more than rolled-up shrimp in a wrapper...much better, to me, are the kind where they make up a mashed filling with shrimp, scallion, etc., giving it a little more flavor.My son at first really liked his h.k. style lo mein w/ scallion ginger sauce, but after the meal, we just didn't get that "I can't wait to go back" feeling...they forgot our previously-orderd Vegetable dumplings, and after being reminded towards the end of the meal, the waiter went and got them. They were very freshly-made, however they just didn't have that certain "bitter-crunchy" vegetable filling that we've come to delight in. Service was O.K. in general. One annoying thing was that TV on the wall which kept showing the same thing over and over and over...some kind of cooking taste-off in China or Southeast Asia by the looks of it. At the end after receiving the check, I noticed there was one price too many on it...couldn't figure it out so I asked the waiter and he politely told me it was the TIP---he figured it in and added it to the check. Well, this I do not like, I prefer to calculate my own tip, thank you, and I am generally a pretty good tipper...(I don't expect 5-star service from a hole in the wall), and leave a decent tip as long as we weren't treated outwardly rudely, etc. I was actually going to leave a bit more, but as the pre-tip total had a 50-cent ending, he put a 50-cent ending on the tip to make the bill "even". So we may try again, perhaps to try the soups which looked good and others have written about on these pages. I sure hope it's better then!!

You go to this place for some cheap and delicious food. Get the beef stew and wonton combo with noodles. I'm Chinese and I have to admit, this is some of the greatest noodle soup out there. Its absolutely delicious. The meat is tender, the shrimp wontons are delicious, the noodles are great, the broth is tasty, everything about this is just awesome. Its also only $6.50 to boot. Unbeatable quality and taste for the cost and definitely worth it. Its weakest point is that it doesn't have a really great atmosphere (some currency along the walls, but standard Chinese restaurant atmosphere). The service isn't great. But you don't go to this place for those, you go for the cheap and delicious food.

This is a noodle/soup/congee joint. I ordered 3 plain congees for $3 each--a tad more expensive than other places. They were way too watery. How can a congee parlor mess up PLAIN congee? Being cheap and diluting the signature product.

Love this place for the wonton soup with vegetables and pan fried noodles with chicken and vegetables.
