I am not talking about the food/service here. The restaurant booked an amount on my buddy's credit card that was way above and beyond what we ordered. Be aware, pay cash!!!

This is the best tasting food I've had in a long while. As a native New Yorker, I thought that the food back home was great. This here; is DELISH! Even received a FREE 2017 scroll calendar!! If you're in the are, you can eat in, take out or have it delivered. Prices are not very pricey either.

People were friendly enough. Food was average, I wouldn't rave and say you must go, but I wouldn't tell you not to go either.

Stopped here for take-away a couple of times. Ordered pepper steak the first time. The quality of beef was good and the peppers and onions were fresh. The sauce was smooth. Plenty of fried rice--altogether I made two meals out of one. I liked it so much that I made a point of stopping at this restaurant again on my... More

My first time here. The place was kind of dark, cool, and not that cozy. Not where I would take the family to eat out. A sizable place with seating for 60. The buffet isn't running evenings so I cannot comment. Very clean. You order at the counter, pay, and they bring your food. Fast service, but no one will... More

Food was quite good for a cookie cutter establishment. Staff was friendly and the establishment was clean and modern in appearance.

Any of the dinners we have ordered have been very good and it's fast if you just stop in and order and take it with you. Always more food than we can eat, but the leftovers taste just as good! Friendly service and they do deliver.

What started as a hole in the wall in Logan Plaza has now expanded to 3 restaurants in the metro area. There is a reason. Good food at reasonable prices and incredibly fast service (although the standard response over the phone is "10 minutes"). Try the Happy Family. A mix of shrimp, beef, pork, pollack and multiple veggies. I go... More
