My wife & I ordered sweet & sour pork and hot tea. Although the portions were large we were able to eat all of it. It was very good - - service was prompt. Our bill excluding gratuity was $23.00.

We tried this restaurant, expecting it to be average. Maybe its location in Clinton pre-disposed me to have low expectations. In any event, the decor was very attractive and the food was excellent. The menu had the usual fare (e.g., General Tso's chicken) but there...More

It's been a long time since we've had such a good Chinese meal. We started with the Wonton soup for two. It had a nice over tone of sesame oil and a tasty clear broth with flavorful veggies. The topper was the Sesame Chicken. Imagine...More

I went with my mom to celebrate her birthday. The service was good. The food was also good. It was a friendly atmosphere. The food was reasonably priced for a lunch menu.
