My wife and I went here early on a Saturday evening. It was not busy yet, but was before we left. Service was excellent, with our drinks never getting low. Food was great, with lots of vegetarian options. Unlike most Chinese restaurants, they will do anything on the menu as vegetarian. They also offer items for vegans. The Egg-Rolls were fresh, crisp and well made, and the Kung-Pao Tofu was really good. Definitely a place we will return to!
Yes, it's always crowded but it's worth the wait. Some of the best dim sum and noodles I've ever had in my life. Stand outs include the mixed spicy wontons, chicken with flat noodles, shrimp and pork shumai and of course, the juicy pork dumplings. They also serve a few terrific sauteed veggie dishes such as the mustard greens and the kale. I like to wash it all down with iced cream green tea with sea salt.
Koreanized Chinese food or is it Chinese Korean food? More like the second one. The black bean noodles are excellent as well as the funky fried chicken. The kimchee there is very gingery. They have all the classic Chinese dishes made for Koreans. But you don't need to be Korean or even European to dig this place. With a name like House of Joy!
