My first experience was really good and this time was not so much. My husband and I ordered pork buns and the Taiwanese sausage roll for appetizers, and the Sizzling Beef, pork Mushu with a side of Lo Mein, and Cantonese roast duck for entrees. The appetizers had good flavor and were pretty fair-priced. The Sizzling Beef tasted great, but for $17, had horrible portions, mainly, with the meat. It was maybe worth $12. The pork Mushu tasted good, but again, pretty limited on the meat. There was plenty of cabbage in it, which I could tell is also used as a filler. The Lo Mein was good, but a tad too oily to me. The Cantonese roast duck tasted great, but I feel also overpriced. I understand duck is pretty rare, but this was probably a quarter of a whole duck. So, basically, the food tastes really good, but you don’t get the “bang for your buck.”

Got seated quickly and drinks came fast. Apps were really good. Entree (Beijing duck) was fabulous! Actually, all the food was delicious and presentation was well done. Would probably return again with the kids.

Every time we go there we get cold soup. We asked the waitress for hot soup and 10 minutes later got hot soup. The explanation, “the soup well where they keep it warm is not working”. So it must have not been working for months now since the last I visited it was the same excuse. To make matters worse the food was just warm and there were not many people in the restaurant. The table next to us got cold soup as well.

The last couple at this one, and it seems to be going down hill. The restaurant was mostly empty on a Saturday night at 6:30. I made a reservation and didn’t even need it with all the empty tables. The service was okay but I could tell they were short staffed. An empty table beside us had a cleaning bottle and rag on it during our entire meal. Not very appetizing! The food was just okay so we are not likely to return. Louisville just has way too many good restaurants to settle for “just okay”.

My husband and I ordered each and shared them. Plenty to eat for both of us but also a little leftover to take home for lunch the next day. Also, shared the steamed pork dumplings...OMG!

At this price point plus an automatically applied 20% gratuity (due to party size), I expect finished plates to be cleared in a reasonable time. The main order should be taken before appetizers arrive not coinciding with apps so food does not sit on table in front of customers while waiter asks for main order from all. These are details yet details matter at this level.

The menu is a great mix of well-known dishes and some signature specials (the ginger fish is really tasty). You can confidently order the "usual" dishes and see how much better they taste when done at a true dine-in Asian restaurant.

Last visit has to ask for soup reheat, silverware, refills on drinks.

The food is always amazing but feel the service can lack attention to detail. Usually we can deal with this for a casual dinner. However, our last visit was with a bigger group and it was a special occasion. We made reservations for our group and asked to be put in the back. We confirmed this request over the phone, right before our dinner. When we arrived, we were told that another group took priority over our request. Because we had to be seated up front, we couldn’t really talk and and it took away from the enjoyment of the evening. We would have also really appreciated more of an apology for being bumped, instead of a “take it-or-leave it” attitude.

Unfortunately the service we had left a little to be desired. I think our server was new, which is fine, but wasn't trained properly. We had a reservation and our server is the one who greeted us. Unfortunately they either didn't hear or just did not understand... but set us up at a table for four when it was only two of us. The drinks before dinner were very good but the two drinks we ordered were delivered several minutes apart. The server was nice, but I don't believe had eaten out at a nice restaurant to know the polite basics of a server. Finally, they delivered the wrong check to us... ugh! Again, great food and we hope to return... with better service.
