My mother & I go here for Chinese food because it's the only place we've found that we like. We drive from Belvidere. It is worth it for the beef chop suey and beef & broccoli. The service is always prompt & friendly.

I love this place! I love the spring rolls/anything on their menu is fresh made to order delicious. The dining is a nice quiet experience and delivery is great too! Prices reasonable not overloaded with salt and no msg. Very attentive staff.
