We have been coming since 1987. Same owners..watched their boys grow up and now operate the restaurant. All local and fresh produce hand chopped. For sure quality that we expect. The to go on a Friday night is a great idea !

This is a great place for family, friends, or date night. We go once a week and even more if I could! String bean chicken is my favorite. Chicken fried rice will make you crave it when you are too far from it. We feel like friend of the family that operates it, you will as well!

Each of our 7 family members exclaimed how delicious their food was, whether vegetarian or regular appetite. I would say it is some of the best Chinese food I have had in a long time. We are from...

This restaurant has been a favorite for 30 years. The food and service in that time has never changed. Food and service have been excellent for 30 years. It is family operated by 2 generations. We have never had a bad meal. Lunch has great choices for good price. Dinners have abundant choices available all day.
