  • If I have less than 4 people in my party, can we still play?

    The short answer is yes, mahjong can be played by just two people, but it will be way less fun and way more confusing. For first time learning, we suggest booking an instructor table with a minimum of 3 people, our instructor will sit in as the 4th player. Currently we do not offer single player reservation.

  • Can my guests play or learn to play?

    Yes, your guests are allowed to sit in your seat, play and learn.

  • How do I cancel or change my reservation?

    You can cancel or change your reservation via email or give us a call at (646) 801-0238

  • What style of mahjong do you teach? And how long does it normally take to learn?

    We teach the classic Chinese style, some may call it the Shanghainese style, this style covers the basis of all mahjong principles without the complication of point counting. Typically learning from zero to the ability to play on your own takes about 30mins to an hour.

  • Do I need to know Chinese to play?

    No, you don’t need to know Chinese to play. We use tiles with markings in the corner to help you quickly identify them. You can also grab a copy of our Mahjong Guide for Beginnners, there are tile illustrations to help you identify the Chinese characters more easily.

  • Do you have food or drinks for sale?

    Only soft drinks are available for sale at the moment.
