I had an urge for Egg Foo Young so headed here to fulfill my urge. The seating is limited but it didn't matter as we arrived before any lunch time crowds. The food has always been good and this time was no exception. I ordered Egg Foo Young which was served hot and with plenty of sauce or gravy on... More

My favorite Chinese restaurant since they opened! I've been to about 20 different Chinese restaurants in my lifetime and this place has the freshest most flavorful dishes. I'm surprised at all the negative reviews. To me the dishes are generous portions and I wind up taking home half my order. It's no more expensive than other fast food joints around... More

This has been our go-to family place for years whenever we can't decide on where to eat. We each have a favorite dish, from Lo-mein, to szechuan chicken, to sweet and sour.

Poor quality. Poor service. Prices online and on the menu are not the same as when you go in to pay. We were quoted a totally different price. Grocery store egg rolls are better quality than what we received. They were greasy and once past that first bite we found an unidentifiable "pink" crumbly substance. The rest of our order... More

Ordered on line when I get there they tell me the price on line was wrong and that they have to charge me more than what was quoted on line

This used to be my go to place for Chinese food. Something has changed and that makes me very sad! The crab rangoons were my favorite until recently! Recently they are cold and soggy. The shrimp in the Pad Thai has been smaller and not as abundant. Please go back to how it used to be!

What happened to the Lo Mein? It was the best in the area but now just over cooked noodles doused with peanut oil and soy sauce. Used to be made with sesame oil for much better flavor. Cutting corners with cheaper ingredients on all dishes now. Must be the new management.
