Their 2nd one opened in 2018 in Bayside.

I’ve been a faithful costumer of their take out store when they were still at the old location, which was corner of Main Street and 40th Road (an old post and video during Chinese New Year 2012 ). After they moved to the current location, a few doors down to 40th Road, I followed them. Their bbq ribs, duckies, chickens are very good. They accepted credit card over $30 purchase. Then one day earlier this year, they stopped accepting credit card, which made me stop going. Recently another popular eatery in Flushing, a block away, Nanxiang Xiaolongbao was closed for tax evasion. The government is not dumb – they have a ‘blue book’ for restaurants. So …

Today I went here with a family member, which is cross street from their take out store, which is a surprise to me. So close and I used to go so often, yet didn’t discover this one. It’s very busy at 1 pm. We waited for 30 minutes. When we left around 2pm, the restaurant’s slowing down – the waiting line was gone. The decor is ok, for this type of eatery. Service is good. Food is 4.0 out of 5.
