I have only been once and I thought it was alright. What are your favorite dishes?

    I like all the dumplings but especially the wontons, the duck bao, the shrimp dumplings. Love the chow fun, esp. with XO sauce (funky and spicy, not for everyone). They do a very nice fried rice, very light and clean. Like the braised beef banh mi. Any of the smoked meats are good (not terribly Chinese, though there's some meat smoking in Hunan cuisine). Daily specials are always good. I've never tried their ramen. The least exciting stuff is the entrées, though the SoBe menu looks more expansive than the Surfside one.

      I gotta say that I have not been impressed with the sobe location.

          My "sauces" tell me the Surfside location is closing and will become a pseudo Jewish Deli

            I've been drinking the same sauce though may not be so pseudo.
