I enjoyed the food very much. The food portions are quite large. We had to pack some away at the end.
The pig knuckles are supposed to be their specialty dish, so we ordered to try it out. It was really nice.
However, I have to agree with one of the reviews that there was an revolting smell as you walk in. It smells like something really old. I wish they could be informed so they can get rid of it. I soon forgot about it after a while as the food had taken my mind away.

Thanks to the Canadian Line that I'm making a connection on No.33 bus on Cambie Street for that I could find this nice restaurant on my way home. I thought the Chinese name is kind of neat, which says "Reminiscences of the South of Yangtze River". On weekend, we visited it and thought the food was great. We ordered a few items just to sample. The waitress suggested one more for us to try, that is Xiao-long-bao. She said it's the label of the restaurant. We took her advice and never regretted it. The shell, as thin as you can imagine, holds the tasty juice well. It's the best I have had so far in town.
Most Chinese restaurants have a noise issue, but since their tables are laid out farther apart, and the soft fabric they use for tables and chairs, have absorbed a lot of noise, so we were able to enjoy private conversations while eating.
It's only a month new. It's clean, the chairs are comfortable and the service was excellent. I have not tried the dinner yet, but will definitely try soon. Hope they maintain this high standard as time goes on.
