I love their food and service. My husband always orders their chicken fried rice. My favourite is the orange chicken and their shrimps. They don't clean their tables very often. We just ate there ones, we prefer to order to go.

I went several times with my boyfriend. Always good service. Egg rolls, fish rolls,orange chicken and fried rice are the best. To go or eat there. Different levels of spicy to try.

This is a terrible restaurant, I have never been impressed with it. The food is of poor quality and sometime down right bad. I would never recommend it to anyone at any time.
