Like the mom & pop-ness of this place but the food & the restaurant itself has some issues that would keep me from returning. Fried rice was the least 'fried' tasting fried rice I've ever had... by far (not good). Beef dish was ok, meat was quality, flavor decent. Orange chicken was off taste wise, but the chicken in it...

I wouldn't recommend this restaurant. The waitress could have cared less; food was nothing special. Don't waste your time and money!

I have been a customer of this restaurant for many years and it was at one time my favorite dining spot (and not just because I met my wife when she worked there.) The food was consistently good and the prices consistently low. When it changed hands, it took a short time for the new owner to understand the recipes,... More

Food was okay and service was very fast. Large portions at quite reasonable prices. Quality and flavour of food could be improved upon.

Our first red flag was the water served in a large styrofoam cup. We do not support any establishment that uses styrofoam! Secondly, the food was just okay. I ordered the orange chicken and shared it with my husband. We both had stomach cramps leading to restroom visits on and off, the next day he ate more of that dish... More

I considerd this little place to just be average. I just don't have anything special to say. Clean and very friendly. Seems to have a following tho.

This is a great place to eat Chinese food. It has been around for years, always a plus, their selection is good, and their food is good. Staff is friendly and it is not a huge place you get lost in, rather it has a better intimate feel. You will like eating here.

Was ready to go to different location as directions I was using were incorrect. Once noted the restaurant is very plain and not flamboyant like many Chinese restaurant's. But what it lacks in decor,was put into the food. I had chicken chow mein. Came with Egg drop soup. Was disappointed at first appearance as no color in soup. Was pleasantly... More

Friendly workers, excellent food, and great prices. I had hot and sour soup and orange chicken. It's the best orange chicken I have ever had. All white meat and I didn't find any fat in it. I will definitely go the next time I'm there.
