The menu is in Chinese with English translations and some pictures, and features Chinese dumplings, fried, steamed or in soup, lots of customizable soup and noodle dishes, and not much of what you'd find in a suburban Chinese buffet restaurant. Make sure your dining partners are adventurous and open-minded before you go - this is NOT a place for a "meat and potatoes" guy! Ask what's in an item if you're not sure - the special soup when we were there was pig’s ear and cabbage! If you love spicy, their Sichuan dishes pack some heat, and there's additional Oriental hot sauce on every table.
Green or jasmine tea is kept flowing, refilled into your plastic drinking glasses every time a waitress walks by, and chopsticks are available as standard on every table in addition to Western cutlery. Desserts are some of the nicest and most authentically Chinese we've seen in North America - lots of fruits (mango and lychee predominate), coconut jellies, and rice-milk-based jellies.
