have ordered delivery 3 times now. Although delivery is longer than most others, and they charge more, food is first rate. Egg drop soup perfect. wife gets chicken, which she generally loves. I had the ribs last time to much satisfaction. Pricey, but tasty.

This is actually the only Chinese restaurant that I find my self willing to eat from these days. Clean, friendly people, good food! I order from them quite often and haven't had a reason to complain yet.

Called placed my dinner order for mixed vegetables with extra scallops and guy who took my order agreed promising, "no problem." When I showed up a half hour later again I asked if extra scallops were added to my order and he said, "Yes!" The order came to $10.60 to which I gave him $14 which gave him a 25%... More

They have the best crab rangoons ever! They could use a touch more crab but the filling is very good. I like that you can see them cooking as I'm always weary of cooking in the back as you don't know how clean their kitchen is. The prices are reasonable but have gone up a little due to inflation like... More

There are multiple options between our house and Bao's, but this is our go to spot. Always delicious, always hot, always fresh. The Beef Terriayki is the best I've ever had and the meat is put into smaller pieces which enhances the flavor. You cannot go wrong here.

I only order take out and delivery but there is a table or two in the store front area. Amazing Chinese. I usually pick it up and bring it down the road to the picnic tables at West Haven beach. Very friendly staff, can understand them. Good portion sizes. Must get the teriyaki beef sticks and General Tso chicken!
