This is a rather small restaurant, but all of the tables were filled on this Friday night. We arrived right before it started to get busy (the Friday prior to Valentine's Day). Our waitress, Dawn, had not given us any drink refills, even after we requested them.... The food was VERY bland (I ordered Shrimp and Lobster sauce). The side... More

Never had a bad meal there. My favorite by far is the sesame crusted chicken. I add mandarin gravy to mine. All of the soups are delicious as well. They offer daily specials during the week also. Very clean with prompt and friendly service. I go there regularly. Hope to see you there.

Went here with people who frequent establishment. We were seated quickly. Shared combo fried rice along with the triple dragon. Plenty of food for 2, even brought some home. Others got the duck which was tasty & ample portions. Overall nice, quiet restaurant serving abundant quality Chinese food.

This restaurant was recommended by our hotel and we are glad we tried it. The food was delicious. The service was all you would want. I had the Empress chicken and I was glad wi did, it was a spicy sweet and sour sauce that was very tasty.

Went here on a Saturday night for take-out while staying at a local hotel. Parking lot was full which is always a good sign. I sat back at the bar area while waiting for my order and observed the comings and goings. Great atmosphere! Customers addressed by name, everyone smiling or laughing, a couple celebrating a birthday at the bar... More

We ordered the appetizer for two which is a combination of Vietnamese & Chinese dishes. It included won ton, fantail shrimps, hi hop & crab Rangoon. Then we split an order of Moo Shu Pork. It was plentiful and delicious.

Ate from the appetizer menu and the portions were enough to fill you up. Shrimp was large and fried just right. Waitress was always checking on us to make sure we had enough.Will go back again.

Walked here from my hotel for an early evening meal. Waited on promptly. The food choices were varied. I opted for the Chinese cuisine. Hot and sour soup was very good. Default rice is more of a fried rice, which is nice. Prices were very reasonable given the portion sizes. I had enough to take back to the hotel to... More
