I stumbled upon this place after a hard day of painting my living room. Despite my disheveled appearances, I was seated and served immediately. (Brownie points!)
The decor is very basic, but the table tops are very clean. (MORE brownie points!) The food isn't too greasy, and the flavors are very subtle. Dishes I've enjoyed from several visits are:
Salted fish fried rice - This place is my #2 place for this dish - #1 is a SF dive restaurant.
Seafood clay pot - Simmered together, the prawns, scallops and fish are all so tender!
Beef chow fun - Usually this dish is greasy, greasy, GREASY! But the dish is served with a minimum of oil and lots of flavor.
Salt & pepper pork chops - Most of the fatty bits are cut, leaving just meat.
Overall, this place offers a no-fuss fix of Chinese food.
