We've purchased carry-out from these folks many times, and only 1 time have we gotten a bad meal - when we called, they cheerfully refunded our money and offered a sincere apology. Every other time, the food has been good and fast; there are only a handful of tables, so it isn't the best choice for dine-in Chinese. We like... More

My husband and I eat here often. Staff is friendly, food is very good. The value is incredible, egg rolls are good. We mainly get takeout but they do have a few tables.

We eat her once a month or so. We really miss the former owner and her smiling face, but the new owner is her cousin and she is as sweet as they come. Value here is incredible, they serve WAY too much food. My only complaint is it is either hit or miss. Very good or not that good. Not... More
