Excellent food ( egg rolls with house made mustard sauce), service and Mai Tai. Owners are good people and hot towels is a nice touch.

Also got sesame chicken which came with fresh broccoli, and white rice. Really good! Small wonton soup which came with those awesome crisp toppings. Chicken lo mein and... More

Stopped in after many years..I thought they were closed because their dig that usually offered specials has been blank for a couple years and I rarely saw cars there. Ordered egg roll, steamed dumplings and shrimp toast. I fondly remembered the shrimp toast as best I had ever had...crispy, not oily, lots of chunky shrimp...but these were burned, overly hard...

I seldom write reviews when I have a bad experience. However, in this case, I feel compelled to respond, since I cannot get my money back. Without question, the worse Chinese food I have ever bought. Bland and tasteless. If you can't make a descent pork fried rice or beef Lo-Mein , get out of the Chinese food business and... More

I've been a long-time patron of this Chinese restaurant because the food is quite good, the service is very kind, and the prices are modest. I always get takeout, though, because the dining environment is so out-of-date. Given its good location and ample parking, I believe some interior sprucing could make the place look as tasty as its food.

My husband and I live nearby and had seen this place for years, so we finally decided to give it a shot, and thank goodness we did! The food is delicious, the staff is friendly, and they don't mind taking the time to help you find something new to try. When we asked what new and different appetizer we should... More
