We have been frequenting this restaurant for several years now and would highly recommend it to not only our Asian friends, but to all. We will stop anytime we are in the area, for business or pleasure. We reside in NYC and have friends and business associates in the Colts Neck and Holmdel areas, and find the pricing quite reseasonable for the menu offered. Yes, we are now quite friendly with the owners and cannot imagine the "zero star review" coming from a reasonable or pleasant individual. Not quite a "crowded cafeteria," but definitely very busy. If so crowded, then could they be displeasing the public consistently? By the way, I stumbled onto this opinion page while browsing for info on a business in Matawan, NJ. No pretenses here.

Worst dining experience of my life. Can't imagine anyone other than friends/relatives giving this a good review. Watch dead fish in tank while you eat, the Manger was rude when I called for a reservation, it is too loud & the lights are too bright - you feel like you are in cafeteria. Service was slow. Expensive - $75 for 2 people. Ordered highly recommended crab dish ($28+) but couldn't eat it b/c it was so messy & could not open up legs. Decided to bring home - only ate 1 leg, but discovered the next day that many of the legs were stolen (not in the bag) & the ones they left they stole the top part of the leg (where most of the meat is). Called & complained & the Manager did nothing. I think you need to be Chinese to be treated fairly here. Would never go back. ZERO STAR RATING

I have been coming here for the past 5 years. The food is amazing and the manager is extremely friendly. Every night they have a special called "three dishes, 1 soup" and its very traditional cantonese food that reminds me of hong kong. they have amazing dim sum on weekend mornings- its better than many of the other dim sum restaurants in the area. The food is always fresh and the restaurant has the feel of a traditional cantonese restaurant.

i go here almost every weekend and would recommend it to everyone.

This restaurant is known for its Cantonese style of cooking. Simply the fact that their foods are so fresh and taste so great has brought me to the restaurant countless times. On par with the food quality is also the restaurant's atmosphere; the waiters and waitresses love to make conversation... The room is also bright, spacious, and usually quite lively, which contrasts to the dim, quiet eating atmosphere of most American restaurants.
