Went to this place for the first time last night. Don't remember the street but it's on the same one as Ginza.

Anyway, the dishes we ordered were really good if you want some non-greasy and not slathered in sauce dishes. My wife and I (both chinese, wife from China) thought the dishes had a home-made feel to them and were pretty authentic. Since the wife is pregnant, she's been craving food from home and not the chinese served in 90% of Chinatown (with essentially the same menu) and certain not the americanized versions outside of Chinatown so this place really satisfied her cravings (at least last night).

Here is what we had:

* Roast Squab (awesome!)
* Pork and chinese green bean stuffing with lettuce wraps.
* A giant steamed pork patty with various diced ingredients (not sure how to describe this but this is a common dish in chinese households).
* A rice soup with bits of pork and seafood.

Unfortunately, I don't know the exact names of the dishes as my wife ordered some of the dishes from the chinese menu (I can't read chinese).

We plan on going back soon and trying out some of their other specialties and see if they are just as authentic and good as we think they'll be!
