Went there yesterday for what they call Afternoon Tea Combo. First they could not explain over the phone what the combo consisted of but we went anyways. Waitress takes forever to seat us. Chinese waitress with fake blonde hair. Gives us one menu, no water, doesnt ask us if we want drinks and could not explain the combo special. Patrons... More

The food is good and the price is right. The wait for a table can be long though as this place gets very busy. For this visit, both our tea cups were dirty, one has lipstick on the rim of the cup and the other has some leftover food stuck on the outside of the cup. Both were quickly replaced... More

I love the seafood congee and with chili oil sauce. Restaurant is very affordable. You should also try roasted pork and the crispy chicken plus the chefs fried rice. yummy

My wife and I have frequented this restaurant over many years, most typically for lunch Arrive before or after the crowd - it gets busy with wait times going out the door. When we go, we will typically order take out as well for another meal. Hot/sour soup is great, salt and pepper squid is amazing, most things on the... More

We have friends that visit from Ohio and HAVE to visit this location each and every time. There are 10 of us that meet regularly and sit tight feast on an amazing variety of dishes. The favorites are the turnips. The squid deep fried are on the list too. Spicy pork chops and house phai thai are amazing don't forget... More

I used to find the name a bit of a turnoff but after our second visit this year I can say they offer a vast selection of authentic Chinese dishes such as beef, chicken, bbq pork, seafood and vegetables. On both occasions we ended up taking home the left overs and finished every bit. The place can be very busy... More

I have visited this restaurant many times and I am always impressed how many Asian people frequent this place as well. It is generally a good indication of good food and traditional dishes being served. It's not a fancy place but always clean and well kept, brightly lit and full of people having a good time. The food is always... More
