Thought we would try this Chinese restaurant as we both really enjoy good Chinese food. Well this restaurant is not special as it offers typical Chinese food. Will keep looking for a great Chinese dinner - there has to be one out there somewhere.

The food consistency here is ridiculous, but when it's good, it's very good. This place on a good day actually has the best tasting Chinese food in the city. However you never know when it's a good or bad day until you have it. The...More
