We visit this restaurant regularly. It is a local favorite for both dine in and take out. Love the salt and pepper fish! Can get pretty crowded. It seems Tuesday can really fill up! Well priced.

We always enjoy eating at this small place. They have some of the best Chinese food around. My wife and I share a meal (the meal that has orange chicken) and that works out perfect.

Very good food; limited wine and beer choices. Fast service. Perfect choice at the end of a long day of driving with 2 days of driving ahead.

We like to go here the food is good. Not much seating so they can't handle a large group. They are closed on Monday's. Friendly service clean tables and very well worth the price.

Top notch food. They use only lean meats in their dishes. Pot stickers are killer! Love the sizzling rice soup and the sizzling rice wor bar, but watch out, it comes to the table screaming hot!
