Take out or dine in at this Chinese restaurant. All types of authentic Chinese dishes. I had the pork & veggie noodle soup and my wife had the beef noodles. Both were very good and the meats were tender.

We had different types of this pan fried noodles and they were all just great. The prices are v. reasonable. The menu has a good selection of Hong... More

Ever since moving to the area 6 years ago, this restaurant has been a "go to" for the family. Food is fresh and reasonably priced. Our family does a lot of take out and we get greeted like old friends by the staff when we come in.

Our cousins, who are regulars of this restaurant, suggested this restaurant in the Arcadia Supermarket strip mall. It's tucked away close to the far right corner of the strip mall. Parking was plentiful when we arrived but got very busy as the evening wore on. It's a cash only restaurant. Our cousins had pre-ordered hot pots for us (cured meat)... More

We've been going to this restaurant with our family for over 15 years. The food is really good and the portions are generous. The crispy rice clay pot is really good.

Our favorite dish is the Tofu Seafood Casserole. It's a meal by itself and we usually take whatever is left home. Go for lunch since their lunch menu is discounted. We love the free soup that comes with any lunch orders. You will have to pay for the same soup though if you go for dinner. Since it's a very... More

Famous in the Chinese community for their assorted preserved meat hot pot rice and I can see why. I'm American-born Chinese and I love this place. The hot pot rice is rice in a ceramic pot that's been cooked on the stove until the rice around the edges is crispy. The waiter brings it to the table and pours a... More

Our fourth time to visit this restaurant, everytime we get in town we always try to make time to eat here. One of our favorite is their orange chicken, crispy noodles and fried pork chop. Again it never fails to impress us the quality, the service is quick and friendly

Great find - all the food is super fresh. The restaurant was filled with Asian people, which is always a sign of great food. The menus are in English & Chinese. Waiters are very helpful. Service is prompt. Sautéed eggplant was real tasty & spicy. Chicken with peanuts was great, as were sautéed vegetables

Authentic Chinese food is the name of the game here. Everything cooked to order but in record short time. Able to customize plates to your liking. From the good old standards to some of the more arcane dishes like sea cucumber, the wide-ranging menu has it all. Quite reasonable pricing. They do have take-out. CAUTION: cash only. Busy, not very... More
