New Cantonese restuarant in FairLakes?

Was driving by the Malibu Grill (Brazailian BBQ) in Fairlakes, and noticed there are now Chinese characters on the sign... had to stop in and take a look.

It turns out, they have split the restaurant into 2 co-located restaurants -- one remaining the old Malibu Grill, and the new Cheong Wong chinese place. They say its a Hong Kong style seafood restaurant, and the menu looks promising. I am hoping for good things, as there isn't much authentic chinese food out in western FFX county.

I found it very odd that there were no outside signs in English to indicate there was a Chinese restaurant at that location.

I didn't get a chance to try it yet. Has anyone tried this place?

    Thanks for the tip -- looks promising. I like that they spell chow foon like they do up in Boston, where I was first exposed to the dish.

    Hope there is no taint from being in the same building as the execrable Malibu Grill.

      I saw their ad in the local Chinese paper about a month ago and wanted to try, but haven't had a chance yet. It is funny that they're co-locating with the Malibu Grill as it's not very apparent where it is from the outside. I see there's one review of it on yelp, and it's so-so.

        Thanks - I thought it was yet another Korean place. I will have to try this!
