We went on Christmas day. I was nervous because I read a lot about bad angry service, but this was not the case. The women were a bit stern, but were patient, and even cracked a smile. We ordered soup dumplings. I still prefer Joe's they just are more rich in flavor, however SC's were more crabby in flavor. Salt and pepper shrimp, good, but was 14.95 for about 8 shrimp. Shanghai lo mein, better then Joe's, A noodle and crab chive dish, nice balance for the other dishes with stronger flavors, but would not order it again. The best dish was tangerine beef. It had a crispy texture like kfc's extra crispy. It was so so good. Also the turnip cake was good and the scallion pancake had a good taste as well. Looking forward to trying it again. Thanks lau and kt!
