For a price, this is the place to go if you’re looking for legit Chinese food, not the buffet-style knockoffs popular around town. The Peking duck is particularly flavorful, and the list of dumplings and soups is impressive to say the least. Seaweed, jellyfish, bird’s nest, shark fins, they’ve got it all, and we believe it’s the real deal (at least judging by the price). The restaurant itself is swanky and perfect for a brunch splurge along the waterfront. These guys pay attention to detail, which gives it top marks in our book. We haven’t had such an authentic Chinese dining experience since we left Shanghai. Well worth the final tally.
