    First time here. Had been wanting to come, as we have had many great meals in Hong Kong. As others have said, it should be specified how spicy the dishes are, and there should be the option to remove or lessen the level of heat. The food was okay, but nothing special. The menu is entirely too limited and the hostess did not understand enough English to be able to address our seating request. The service was atrocious. We ordered drinks that arrived after the first set of dishes and which required that we remind the waiter. The dishes came out in a weird order and we had a few dishes and drinks get completely mixed up. There seemed to be a shortage of waitstaff at the beginning of the meal, and there were more people helping out by the end of it. We will not be returning. The only thing going for this restaurant is the proximity to the DCPA.

    First time diner. The steamed pork dumplings were tasty. Both of us had the scallops and shrimp in a spicy sauce, which was quite hot in taste. Might be too much spice for most diners. Convenient to the DCPA and with prompt service we made the show in plenty of time. We'll be back.

    The chicken wings are the BEST in Denver. Tender, tasty with a spicy kick. Yet, NO MSG which is important to us. We also love their mango salad. It has fresh ingredients, and a generous amount of Mango and Avocado. The dressing is a little lemony...light and refreshing.

    Food was good. Nice addition to the neighborhood. Portions seemed a tad small, but price was moderate, making up for that. Will definitely return to try more dishes.

    We came here for dinner before a show on a snowy Saturday. It was pretty quiet & we were seated by the window. They honored happy hour in the dining area which was great. We ordered some apps on HH - potstickers & crazy dumplings, non HH - Cha Shao Sliders. They were all excellent. My husband loved the potstickers & they reminded him of Mr Chow. I had the beef brisket ramen. It was so delicious & even better the next day for leftovers at home. He loved the Wagyu beef BBQ with the uncles fried rice. Also made for excellent leftovers the next day, it smelled amazing! We can't wait to go back. Service was great & friendly staff. Excellent location right by the light rail & theaters.

    Limited menu and no indication of the heat level. Everything we ordered was super spicy which is fine if you know it and choose it. We had the shrimp and scallops and the dish was pretty sparse on the protein with 2 shrimp - cut in half to look like 4 - and 2 scallops. Our waitress was nice and when she realized we weren't happy she took it off the check. We won't likely return which is too bad because there aren't that many options for Chinese food downtown.

    While the appetizers were fine, the entrees were unfortunately dismal. The Bon Bon chicken was flavorless and needed some kind of sauce; the Hot Wife Tofu tasted like it was in a sauce of perfume and was sent back (in addition, a soft not hard tofu was used, making it mushy); and the fried rice was flavorless. Truly a disappointment.

    The location is conveniently close to the theater district. But beware that the service friendly but is slow, so make sure you come at least 2 hours before any show to be able to dine at a comfortable pace. Food is decent.

    We went for a Valentine's Day pre-fixe menu and were incredibly disappointed by the experience. We chose this restaurant specifically for the menu promised. We were only given one entree to share and it had four sea scallops...to share between two people. The food was mediocre at best, the service was scarce and the price was crazy for the small amount of food we were given. Not only will we not be back, but this has put us off of going out for Valentine's Day anymore, as the second negative experience we have had with a pre-fixe menu on Valentines Day.

    We found this place last minute, on Valentine's Day, for a party of 8 with 4 kids. They handled our group easily and accommodated our non-spicy requests for the kids' entrees. Everything was delicious! The dumpling and edamame appetizers were a tasty start! I highly recommend the Waygu noodle dish and the Cha Shao! Everything was very flavorful and the portions were great for sharing! Highly recommend!

    The food is so good and the value is too. It was sad that on a Saturday night there were so few people. Would recommend advertising in the DCPA program and around downtown. It is too good to see it not be successful.

    I met a friend here for a quick bite before catching a show at DCPA. The service was super and the food delish. We had the steamed pork buns and edamame for starters and then shared a spicy tofu entree. I wish the tofu dish had some veggies to go with the fabulous spicy pork sauce, but it was just tofu. We asked for extra brown rice, which we got at no additional charge. I had a lemon ginger cocktail of some sort, it was a little to sweet for me so I switched to sparkling sake, which paired well with the spicy tofu. We were too full to try dessert, but maybe next time. And there will be a next time!

    This place is simple. The menu is simple. Come in and grab a bite. The mango salad is wonderful on a hot summer day. The mushrooms have a wonderful sauce nd make a great side to the chicken. The dumplings were better than I had hoped. Nice drink selection too. We stopped here on our way to the Rockies game. 1/2 block from light rail (14th & Stout)

    We had 7pm friday reservations, and the restaurant was 3/4 full. Our drinks and apps started off good, but as we got into the main dishes, the taste and preparation seemed to drop off. The food wasn't bad, it just wasn't excellent. Just about everything contains pork, so you'll need to like pork to eat here. The service started of good, but we were left alone as soon as the restaurant started to empty out, and we spent the last 30 minutes alone, and had to track down someone for our bill. By this time, the restaurant was completely empty and the kitchen staff were at the bar. Our waitress was nowhere to be found. It was a bizarre experience for denver on a friday night. We can only surmise that its location (across from the performing arts complex) makes it very dependent on whether there are shows in town. But they didn't do themselves any favors by having average food and service that went from ok to awful.
