Had the pleasure of visiting this Chinese restaurant after many years of being retired from working downtown. The food is still excellent and the fast lunch is still the best for the price. Menu changes daily, and if in the mood for great Chinese food...More

Worse Chinese food ever! We odered Teriyaki Chicken, Kung Pao Chicken and fried scallops. Both dishes were tasteless with huge uncooked pieces of carrots and greenpeppers. Definately needed salt or something! We couldn't eat the chicken but did pick the shrimp out. Scallops were okay.
