Dallas Observer's Description

Named after the festival that commemorates a second century BC martyred Chinese poet, this Addison restaurant specializes in elegant culinary preparations of the best of regional Chinese cooking. This isn't a greasy take-out joint whose only real specialty is MSG. It's pricey. It's also beloved by every major Dallas periodical and numerous celebrities as varied as Chinese food itself, among them Chuck Norris and Martin Yan. Owner Joe Chow's restaurant and its menu are expansive. There are private rooms and seemingly endless dishes. So, we'll give you a small sample of the house specialties: pork and hard tofu Szechuan style, Peking duck, three ways and the May Dragon combo. There are the supermarket variety Chinese dishes well loved by Americans, but they're elevated in presentation and ingredients.

    Positively one of the best Chinese joints in town. Sizzling plates are a humble plus. Wonderful service.

    The Best Chinese Restaurant in Addison Texas! (Possibly the whole DFW area)
