It was great: gelatinous outer coating covering a hard core. The flavor was nutty, kind of like it was soaking in sesame oil

I have been going to this restaurant for many years and it's the best cantonese food in the city. People who don't like this restaurant may be ordering the wrong food.

The food is unappetizing Corn and chicken soup tasted like a can of corn was dumped into egg drop soup- was barely any chicken. Spare ribs were sitting in a full plate of honey and were not good- plus gave you 4 tiny little spareribs- looked like they cut 1 spare rib up into 4 pieces The entrees were swimming in a gooey, flavorless, heavy cornstarch sauce- and were barely edible- Not sure what people see in this place.

Fantastic authentic Cantonese. Service does leave a lot to be desired but you come for the food.

I went on Menu Pages to find this place since it was close to where I live in Murray hill. If you want an enjoyable Chinese meal you will be disappointed. I was starving and decided to give it a try. The shrimp wonton soup was too salty, spring rolls was the only decent thing I got. Salt and Pepper Shrimp was very bland and overpriced on the menu it was 13.95 and when the bill came was $15.95. Chicken and Broccoli was so tasteless I couldn't eat it at all, there was no brown sauce on it at all forget that there was no sauce period .

We were 11 for Sunday luncheon. The many dishes included: salt n pepper shrimp (2 orders 7 in each)good, in edible shells, but I have had better; fried bean curd (meatless) OK; conch with veggies OK; scallops with veggies in bird’s nest OK; roasted half chicken (not crispy, not tasty, not stale but could’ve been fresher) so-so; yang chow friend rice (2 orders) OK; shredded pork pan fried noodles OK (wet, 2 kinds of noodles, very starchy tasting); beef with string beans OK; poached sea bass with ginger and scallions OK; fried pork chops so-so—few, mostly bone, not fried well (not fresh oil, not crispy); sweet n sour boneless chicken OK. All of the portions were small, barely enough for 2, tad much for 1 person if ordering other dishes. Everything was basically OK. Nothing was tasty (maybe not enough MSG?). There was no dominant flavors. Fish did not taste of scallions, soy or ginger. Pork chops were not fried well. The restaurant did not have food odors permeating, either good ventilation or not enough seasoning. No wok odor. Beef was tender but somewhat tasteless, as were pork chops and veggies. Main dishes had few of the main dish items but way more filler (veggies, scallions, etc.) Half chicken seemed more like quarter chicken. Had to ask for white rice, they do not serve brown rice. Service was very attentive and friendly. Place is quite small and elongated, open brick walls (more like a pizzeria) decorated with Asian masks and artifacts. We were setup with one round table for 6 and a square table for 4, no private area. Prices were high considering the portions; probably typical for neighborhood. This was hosted by someone else, but I would not return.

We were there July 1, 2011 with a group of 12. They reserved a large round table which no one in NYC seemed to be able to do and we ate more or less family style. We brought our own wine and they had wine glasses. The food was excellent and reasonable. We loved the place. Will go again.
