Great food, great service and a wonderful experience, as usual. I have been eating at this restaurant for years and it always is up to the same great standard.
Incredible hot and sour soup.

Too much bad Miami Techno
Music played too loud - consider nice jazz
Miami techno was passé 15 years ago
Food great ambiance - especially 2nd floor needs a lot of work

Just a night out with my husband, we were craving Chinese food and decided to come here. The bbq ribs were dry and the wok dumplings were not the greatest. The fried rice with shrimp was pretty good. I ordered the flourless chocolate cake which was not good at all, left most of it and only ate the vanilla ice cream. All in all not that much bang for you buck, for that we would have gone to Buddakan, for a much better value and taste.

I went here for my birthday dinner with my boyfriend and it was AMAZING! Honestly fabulous food and after seeing everyone order the Peking Duck I MUST GO BACK AND GET THAT! The broccoli with garlic sauce was FANTABULOUS! If you need a date spot, THIS IS IT!

Terrible welcoming by what appeared to be a new hostess. Drinks very sub-par. Negroni was not even close, Lichee martini overly sweet. Sat 4 of us at a cramped table for 4.

Went here on a recommendation from a friend, but should've asked more questions before changing from our previous choice. The food was very disappointing. No flavor, no spice. No rice served with the family-style portions, so had to pay extra for that. Tables were lined up in rows, so there was absolutely no privacy for conversation. Cocktail options not very interesting (all very sweet) and wine list was dismal and very expensive for a glass. Would not recommend and will never return.

The food was very tasty. Really appealed to my taste buds. The waiter was timely and helpful and the ambiance was very nice. We took family that was here from out of town and here for the holidays to dinner that evening and they loved it!

Great food and service. Nicola was perfect. Nice wine selection. Tables are close together so get use to hearing other table’s conversations and they hearing yours. I recommend the Salt/Pepper Sea Bass.

The food was delicious but the service was lacking. The plates were being collected before everyone was finished eating. It felt like they wanted to move us on to turn over the table.

Service was great, Food was very flavorful and some of the best Chinese dishes we have had. Loved the atmosphere. We wish we were in the front room, but vibe was similar in the back room, just a lighter version. Prices are higher than you would expect, but the value is there as it is really good and service is top notch. Would definitely go again!
