We've come here for years and have always enjoyed the food and the service. However, we've recently realized how this place has gone downhill over the years. The prices have went up, the portion sizes have decreased, and the service has drastically diminished. During our last visit, the sole older waitress served at least 10 tables by herself with no...

It's unfortunately you feel that way. We try to be reasonable and competitive in pricing as everything is still custom made and prepared. Fortunately, our portions have not diminished over time, so I'm not sure what happened there. We don't have an older waitress, so I'm not sure if you are reviewing the correct business? If indeed you are, I'm... More

I don't know what's happened over the last year but this place has gone downhill terribly. We walked out after 15 minutes sitting at the table without any acknowledgement from employees. We gave them another shot a few weeks later by ordering carryout. When we arrived to pick it up, our food wasn't ready and we stood there another 25... More

Would you be able to provide a specific date this occurred. I as the owner am here 6 days a a week, and if indeed this happened on the ONE day i'm not there, I'd like to make some adjustments and reprimand some employees. Appreciate time your help. Vince More

This is a small, kind of a simple place with very good food. I have been coming to this restaurant for over 25 years. My dinner tonight was just as good as it has been in the past. I had the sweet and sour chicken which is made with a red sauce. No carrots or green pepper and just one... More

Went here for lunch with my daughter and grandkids, the food was just o.k., everything was pretty salty. I wouldn't go back because the place was quite dirty, the lighting was so bad you could hardly see. The floor was tile, with 2 carpet runners that were filthy, they could have easily been replaced. Also, our waiter was very nice,... More

We wouldn't dream of going anywhere else for excellent Chinese food. We've been patrons almost since they first opened their doors ... five generations of us.

The $22.95 dinner for two (Almond Chicken and Steak Kow) is large enough that you will probably be taking home some left-overs. The quality and taste is good. This place has been in the area for a very long time. I think that this restaurant was the first Chinese place in Howell. If you remember eating Chinese in the 1970s,... More

I was very disappointed with my experience. Its been years since I've eaten there but never had a bad meal before. Our waiter smelled so bad of B.O. that I gagged everytime he came around. I ordered the sesame chicken and couldnt finish it because it was too sweet, my family also agreed with me when they tasted some. The... More

Stopped in here late one evening. We were seated quickly and the staff were all very friendly. The inside is kind of dated and could use some updating and the tables/sauce containers need a good deep cleaning. Tried to use the womens bathroom but the toilet was plugged. The food arrived quickly and was very good. Not a bad place... More

Small restaurant. Atmosphere is cozy, not loud. Dinner was very good. Vegetables very fresh and cooked just right. Overall it was an enjoyable experience.
