Years ago, the A-Team purchased the Golden Pagoda restaurant and handed it over to Sam Yeng in gratitude for old favours. When organized crime started moving in on what they still called "their restaurant" they decided to do something about it.

Episode summaryEdit

The Golden Pagoda restaurant is owned by Sam Yeng,a good friend of the A-Team and they have helped out the Yeng's by bankrolling them, thus making them part owners of the successful eatery. Unfortunately, the Yengs have become a target for the Lung Chin, a Chinese tong that extorts protection money from area businesses. When the Lung Chin take on the A-Team, they kick over a hornet's nest, however, and things get very interesting when the team discovers that the tong is attempting to smuggle an exiled mobster back into the U.S.
