    No fuss classics and busy busy. Get seated with strangers in a booth so you can stare at their food and play food critic.

    I like it but I don't love it? I feel like the reviews hyped it up for more than its worth. Don't get me wrong, its still great

    Love this place. Creamy homemade curry is great, as is the fu yung omelette, lemon chicken, shrimp toast, crispy noodles, etc, etc..... Worth the wait in line.

    The lady waitress is extremely patient with two "yellow bananas" and our terrible Chinese. Thumbs up!

    Not expensive good HK food, try the eggs + shrimp!

    Very traditional HongKong/Cantonese style restaurant. Reasonably priced and always packed, so be ready to wait for a table. The macaroni soup with fried egg and luncheon meat is simply delicious

  • Dellia L.

    Get the Cha's milk tea! It's awesome!

    Dellia Lim · December 31, 2013

    Famous Cantonese restaurant in Shanghai. VERY delicious food! Chicken in sweet lemon sauce is amazing, try French toast for desert and Cantonese milk tea of course!

    Iulia Feofanova · October 24, 2013
  • Yang F.

    definitely worthy! classic Cantonese food, the same as what I'd enjoyed when staying in Hong Kong

    Yang Fan · September 14, 2013
  • Andrew B.

    Delicious Hong Kong cuisine. Marble beef, scrambled egg with shrimp and lemon tea (so different from European or Russian tea w lemon!) are strongly recommended

    Andrew Berg · June 16, 2013

    A casual Hong Kongese diner serving traditional Cantonese food alongside milk teas and coffee. Try the soy sauce chicken, deep-fried wings, dry-fried rice noodles with beef, & fried ramen with pork. Read more

    Always a lot of people. YES, ALWAYS

    The best time to avoid wait line is to come after 1:30am.

  • Ben H.

    Decent casual Cantonese food. The stuff i got were all kind of bland. Little overrated IMHO.

    Ben H · June 2, 2012
  • Maggie B.

    Seriously try the fried shrimp on toast, orange chicken shrimp and everything else. Look at everybody's orders for inspiration

    Maggie Brennan · May 15, 2012
  • Gabriel J.

    Be gentle and nice to the waitresses dressed in white. Some of them finish work every night at 3am.

    Lemon chicken, house curry, pineapple buns, and poached chicken are amazing. I love this restaurant. Small and casual. One of my favorite Chinese restaurant in town.

    Try the original iced milk tea - authentic!

    Adriel · August 9, 2011

    Get the fried chicken

    To really feel like you are in a wong kar wai movie you should dress up like tony leung in chung king express and eat macaroni with luncheon meat.
