    Good, quick, cheap food so don't expect 5 star service. Down side is the cash only policy.

    For vegetarians, try the fried tofu with curry sauce, any of the noodles, or the bean curd skin. And the Hong Kong tea is a great accompaniment

    I recommend to come here with friends, because the dishes are huge. And it's so cheap! Not a five star but I would totally come back for the chicken congee with fried dough.

    CAUTION: Review the check carefully. They intentionally mislabel a 15% gratuity as "Tax." People don't notice because it's usually a small difference, but you end up paying tip on top of the tip.

    Snow pea leaf dumplings and congee with your favorite ingredients (dried scallop, bean curd, and sliced fish). Don't forget the fried dough for your congee.

    Order the crystal shrimp wonton noodle soup w/o the noodles. They will give you a bowl of broth and wontons with delicate, smooth, and soft skin.

    Had the hot pot special for $26 excluding tax&tip. Includes appetizer, drink, hot pot stuff, and dessert. Hot pot was typical but I left fully satiated mostly from the awesome pan fried dumplings!!!

    Ordered a beef lo mein. Confirmed that it wasn't the noodle soup. Got home to find out it was... Check your food before leaving! All 3 dishes were bland as well. I'm usually a fan but not this time.

    I ordered the udon and it says you can make it hot/spicy for an extra .55 cents.. All they do is squeeze a whole bunch of hot sauce in the bottom of the bowl. I do not recommend.
