Chinese is not my favorite cuisine however this restaurant was the perfect location to meet friends prior to the theatre...downtown San Jose. Ample food extremely reasonable prices...tasty!

Right from the lazy susan tables to the chinese lanterns, this is the place downtown for good solid chinese food.

This dinner was excellent. I had the chicken with green beans and the house special fried rice. Our service was excellent. The food was excellent and I hope I can return before I leave to return home from this vacation. All of the food served to my party of three looked great and they said it was excellent.

The family dinner was delicious and provided enough food for five meals. Each dish was spiced just right-not bland, but not heat for the sake of obscuring the food, Service was pleasant but dishes appeared in no particular order. We will definitely be back.

The food here is really really good. I ordered the mince meat soup and the spinach and beef. Both were really, really delicious. The soup was piping hot and full of meet and veggies. The beef was very tender - there was plenty of it and the spinach was nice and fresh All in all a great meal

Awesome restaurant to go to if you have a big group for the convention. You can work with the staff and customize the menu depending on the budget. Very tasty and the food comes out quickly. Staff are very friendly and helpful.
