This place has been around for about 15 years and for a good reason. The buffet is about 20 items of some pretty good Chinese grub but the best items are the ones not on the menu. The Chicken Dumpling Soup is Amazing. It's a...More

Loved it. Simple. The lady serving was a gem. The gentleman in the kitchen knows how to make some delicious grub. If I'm in town again I'm stopping here. My kids also loved it and they usually are picky little buttmunches.

The LowMei Noodles, Fried Chicken Wings, Dumplings (Pot Sticker or Dumpling Soup), and the Sweet Sour Chicken are unique and tasty, you will enjoy and come back for more. It is the best Chinese foods you can find in the area.

I like the intimacy afforded by the small size of the restaurant and, of course, the food. The owners are really friendly.
