This place reopened recently. I never went there before they were closed, but just went on Oct 15 at around 8pm. Food was really good - shockingly good in fact. I'm so used to Chinese restaurants being middling at best and horrendous at worst, that my expectations were not very good going in. The waiter told me they reopened mid September.
The place is hidden away on the second floor and you don't really see it unless you know what to look for. There is parking underneath in the parking garage under the complex which the restaurant is in. Otherwise, it's a close walk from Bravern and nearby to other restaurants (e.g. French Bakery).
We had the braised pork with soy sauce. Very good and very authentic. My wife is from Shanghai, and she said it is authentic, so I'l take her word for it. Also had the stir-fried string beans with eggplant. Very nicely cooked and seasoned. The eggplant was not overcooked, like it so often is. Finally, the two of us shared a pork and tofu soup. Also quite good, though it could have been a bit saltier and needed a bit of white pepper to kick it up a bit. The two of us shared a pot of flower tea and that too was very very good - nice generous portion of flowers in the pot to give it a really good flavor.
Overall, I was very impressed. Hope the place survives as it is so nice to have a really good Chinese restaurant in town.
They were closed for a while but have reopen! Talk about a major change! Food is out of this world! One of the best places in Bellevue now!
Delicious food, friendly staff and beatiful restaurant.
This is a great Chinese restaurant!! The food choices are very large, the food is just great. The first time I went alone and took 50% home. The second time I took a friend. You can save %$$ with a coupon from Groupon. THe staff is friendly and helpful especially the young man that is usually at the entrance.
You must park underground which is actually street level. Parking is just terrible because the spaces are very narrow. Take the elevator to the 2nd floor.
Absolutely fantastic restaurant with a very nice and courteous people working there!
