This restaurant offers consistently good food, generous protions, at a very reasonable price. I've had dinner and taken home enough for the next day's lunch, and I can eat. Friendly staff adds to the quality. Wines are reasonably priced. The place is spotless and comfortable.

Heard all the reviews and happened to be in the area so we stopped in for dinner. Heard about the ""Chinese"" menu (as opposed to the ""American"" menu). Didn't ask to see it but tried to see if they had typical Cantonese dishes. Asked for Hong-Kong style chow mein (long egg noodles, fried, and topped with meat with sauce, not American chow mein which use noodles almost like crackers) and it wasn't exactly HK style, but pretty close. Asked for a steamed flounder, but was told it would take 40 minutes - not sure why that would be - most places will do it in half the time. But they did have a whole flounder where they filleted it, cut the meat up into chunks, breaded and fried it, and sauteed with vegetables - really good. Definitely a cut above the typical American-style Chinese place.
