I love Chinese food, and this is my all time favorite place to enjoy it. I live in the East Bay, but I always try to find an excuse to eat here whenever possible, I've yet to try anything that wasn't tasty beyond my expectations. Everything from their home made leak dumplings and fresh chow mein noodles, crispy and flavorful chicken wings, cherry pork, and peanut noodles. I always order extra, so I can have some to take home with me. The place is a tasty delight and reasonably priced. But get their early, because at night it can get very busy!

Everyone says to try the dry fried chicken, but that was not my favorite. Cherry Pork is the dish to try. It has cherry and ginger and the texture is perfect. We tried it on a lark and were pleasantly surprised. The dumplings and potstickers were excellent. We had peanut noodles as well which were delicious.
The prices are unbelievable, $8-$10 for a lot of dishes. They have lots of group seating with big tables and lazy susans. The place is PACKED, so be ready for a wait. We waited about 20 minutes on a Sunday night. Also, the clientele is almost entirely Chinese, which I always take as a good sign that the food is authentic.

8/29/07 Ordered pork potstickers (Qty 6 fried), $5.50, sizzling rice soup (2nd largest), $6.95, fried shrimp (Qty 12 tempura batter), $7.50, mongolian beef, $8, black bean shrimp, $11, and steamed rice, $2. The potsickers were very large and browned completely. Not the best I've had, but the most unique. The soup was tasty enough, but I was expecting some larger pieces of shrimp. The fried shrimp was a special find, excellently cooked. The beef was tender. It is served dry over noodles. The white onions were under grilled. I would have liked a sauce with it, but the portion size made up for it. Plus you can always request some extra sauce from the kitchen. The shrimp portion was not as large and had too few green peppers. Everything was served just cooked and hot. Get here between 5pm and 6pm for dinner to avoid waiting and finding a parking spot. I would go back and try some other dishes since the value is there and the food is freshly cooked. This is not gourmet fare; it is good basic chinese. Wait staff are not very attentive so you must be assertive with any waiter that passes by if you need anything. Lastly, the steamed rice is refilled for free.
