Fodor's Review

Chinese students throng this Hong Kong–style eatery where the walls resemble bulletin boards—they're tacked with dozens of sheets announcing a mind-boggling variety of foods, from dim sum to Thai (you can also ask for a menu). Dishes emerge from the kitchen seemingly at the speed of light. The food, which ranges from the exotic (sautéed frog with ginger and scallion) to the comforting (delicate shrimp wonton soup), is some of Chinatown's finest.
