Being Chinese, i have had the worse of food and the best of food and this is neither of them.
In terms of food they make great noodles, they cook a dumpling chicken bowl that is worth being damned for and they bake the the best buns in town.
This, though, is varied among different days. Sometimes the buns are too hard, sometimes the buns are too soggy. When the customer traffic gets too high, the chicken in the bowl is not cooked right.
Its really a take your luck restaurant but most of the time luck seem to be on the good side.
Service, the two managers have little chit chats with customers once in a while which ease the atmosphere. Some of the lovely waitresses are very enthusiastic about your order and gets the job done as soon as possible. Where as some of the not-so-enthusiastic waitresses either ignores your call or they dont focus. You could scream at the limit of public area manors and they won't come near you. The more you try the less they want to serve you.
The scenory is not the best. It cannot be compared to waterfront nor the airport. But it is worth spending the time to look at the design of the place. The twelve zodiacs line the wall and two stone (not really) soldiers guard the restaruants entrances.
Definitly a place to visit in Richmond.
