With Ducks and half pigs hanging in the window, there is no doubt that this is an authentic Chinese eating place.
There are lunch specials as cheap as $ 4 and the food is very fresh, as there is a major Chinese market next door. A la carte main courses run about $ 10
The green vegetables are done just so and the sauces have none of the gloppiness of a Junior High School cafeteria. You can even get your Chow Fun dry
The ambiance is definitely family style, expect to sit at a large round table with people you don't know.
BTW definitely go to the market next door, the Chinese love their greens and always have at least a dozen varieties available. Don't worry if you don't speak perfect Mandarin, the store's help always answer every question with "very good, very fresh".
