Ken Loo has been in the restaurant business for 19 years and has operated Hy-Ting at the same location for 14 of them. The restaurant features Hunan, Szechuan and especially Cantonese cuisine.

The extensive menu includes all the expected dishes, plus 11 Chinese rice noodle selections, a “pupu platter” grilled at your table, vegetarian plates and creative entrées such as Wor Shew Opp (braised boneless duck served in vegetable sauce and topped with crushed almonds) and Volcano Steak (filet of tender steak with onions, snow peas, mushrooms and chef’s special sauce, served on a sizzling plate). No steam table or self-service will be found here; everything is served at your table, the old-fashioned way.

Lunch and dinner specials are offered daily. A full bar serves cocktails, beer and wine. Office parties are welcome, catering can be arranged for on or off the premises and there’s plenty of parking in the rear. Takeout is available.

In addition, Mr. Loo owns Haiku, a sushi restaurant and grill on East Main Street.
