Its stark exterior does not hint at the warm vibe or enticing bites, bound to tempt even the most stoic eater here. One glance around this buzzy and well-appointed dining room proves that it is cherished by multi-generational groups. The setting paints an intriguing picture, thanks to sleek, intricately carved wooden panels, tables, chairs, and vivid artwork. Semi-private booths are ingeniously lit, and ergo, most popular.
The menu boasts a litany of delightful appetizers, like tender soup dumplings. Classics—like garlic-pepper shrimp with leeks and celery—are prepared with exacting technique and deliver wonderful flavor. Slow-cooked Peking duck is a sensory thrill, served with soft pancakes and all the fixings—think cucumber, scallions and hoisin sauce.
