Northern style Chinese Restaurant that offers up more than just dumplings and northern style dim sum. The place itself is located in the Chinese plaza hiding around the Midland/Finch area. The restaurant is rather clean and service is real quick actually.

We ordered Jellyfish salad, pan fried dumplings, smoked duck, and the special, which was like a vermicelli soup with baby bok choy and housemade fish meatballs. The jellyfish salad was the first dish, and unfortunately, the worst. The dish itself was completely bland with no salt, spice, or even some sesame oil. Just a load of garlic.

The pan fried dumplings were great. The skin was pan seared nicely while the dumpling was filled with large amounts of meat.

The smoked duck was done very nicely. We ordered a half portion and there was so much duck. Definitely felt more like more than just a half. The skin was crisp as I believe the duck was lightly fried as well.

The Special that they had was a clear broth soup filled with baby bok choy, clear vermicelli, and home made fish meatballs. The meatballs were very tender and made fresh where you can see that it might have been the same filling they use for the dumplings.

Overall, the restaurant was very good. Other than the jellyfish, I was a fan of all the other dishes. The smoked duck was my favorite and definitely will be something I'd continue to order. The service was quick and friendly enough. Worth a stop over even though there are so many restaurants around.
