Some of our order was good. The vegetable MooShu, for instance, was excellent. The egg rolls, on the other hand, were abysmal. The remainder of our meal -- Ruby Shrimp and vegetable fried rice -- was adequate. They need to take better care of the restrooms, and a general overhaul of the restaurant itself is long overdue.

The food here was really good for classic Chinese food. The people very very nice. My son hurt his toe outside. Both people at the front desk offered everything they could to help: bandaid, ice pack, fortune cookie (the winner). We were seated immediately. We used a coupon and they happily accepted it. The only problem was the service was... More

It's been a couple of years since I was here and I still like the food and the prices. The lunch specials are varied and well worth it, and large portion in spite of the cheap price. It would be excellent if the service was a little better

Very fair portions. Entries are not drowning in sauce and veggies like some other Chinese restaurants I have been to. If you order a beef dish, beef will be the primary ingredient. Try the honey-walnut shrimp...to die for. Service is friendly and efficient. Booths and white tablecloths. All dishes can be spiced to your liking.

Attentive service, great food and good prices make us enjoy going there -2 times a month. Have never had a bad dish there. Love the crispy noodles but you have to ask for them since they aren't a menu item.

We go to Chinese restaurants all the time and have visited China on vacation four times. This place serves a limited menu, and has "Americanized" the recipes so that it is not too exotic. This is the place to take your friends and family who come from the mid-west! We felt that the food was very very bland, but we... More

So often a Chinese restaurant is NOT a quiet place, but this is a place where you can eat, relax, and have a real conversation without fighting a radio, a television set, or other loud people around you. The food is very good, although not as "authentic" as one might find in an Irvine location. We think that their string... More

Just average Chinese food. Had the kung pao, it was not exceptionally spicy or tasty. The server was pleasant to start, but left as soon as he dropped the check. Had to get up and ask for to go cartons. Moo goo gai pan also fairly taste less. Black mushrooms and baby bock choy was ok. Needed more black mushrooms.... More

My husband and I had lunch here last week and it was perfect for a lunch-hour place to go. The service was fast and courteous. The lunch combo includes either hot and sour or egg flower soup, fried or steamed rice, and an appetizer of egg roll and fried wonton. I had the Three Flavor Delight. It was not spicy... More
