    The food was good but I recommend you to pay cash. They returned my credit card (with very impolite manners) with a 'failure' and I paid cash. To my surprise my card has been charged several times.

    This s is across friends m Francis Ford Copallas production house. Ask for the owner and have him order your meal. He's a good whisperer. ;)

    Very authentic. Don't speak English. Ask for what eve they give you. We just paid a fixed price per person and they brought our food. My friend from China said this was the best Chinese food in the US

    If you can Chinese, ask for the Chinese menu. It's got different items, including noodle soup.

    The white fish that I ordered was okay: unexpectedly greasy actually, but my friend enjoyed his Nanking chicken. The service wasn't so good for me as I don't believe in accepting cultural rudeness.

    Really full and yummy place. There's usually a line in front of the place and that's why lots of bypassers stop. Good spices. Prices are pretty low. Very social place.
