This is the best Chinese food in the area - this is the opinion of both myself and my entire circle of friends. The place does not spend money on atmosphere, so don't be surprised by the appearance. They definitely are not concerned with the look of the place. Try not to go late on Friday or Sat evening, as they typically have no wait-staff help (its just one married couple). We have eaten there at least 100 times over the past 12 years; easily as good as places in NY Chinatown.=

Cons: Atmosphere is lacking

I've eaten Chinese food both expensive and cheap in New York, Boston, Philly, London, and China, and have to say that for most dishes, this is hands down the best Chinese restaurant one could eat at. My family has been coming to this restaurant for years, and the food is delicious and presented beautifully. The restaurant itself is not particularly fancy, but it food and good nature of the woman who runs it makes it a place you will come back to again and again. I would recommend the sesame chicken, black bean shrimp, peking duck (call 2 days in advance), and crispy squid.?
For the absolute best Chinese food ever order: black bean shrimp, bean curd and black bean sauce, and/or the eggplant dish. All amazing. Definitely a must try.?
