This is the best Chinese restaurant around Centerport/Greenlawn area. They have lunch specials ranging from $5-$6.50 and they are well worth it. They include dish plus rice, plus Won Ton soup. Note - they only take cash which can be a pain sometimes. General's chicken, fried pork dumplings, boneless spareribs - all delicious!!

This is our regular go-to place for Chinese Takeout. They will always tell you that your order will be ready in 10 minutes, but give them 20. They do not accept credit cards so bring cash. General Tsao's and House Special Duck are always good.

We tried take out from this place when we first moved to Centerport around eleven years ago. It was the worst Chinese take out that we had ever tasted. Hopefully it has gotte better since then, but we never went back. Chin King on East Main Street in Huntington is excellent and not much further from our house.

This cash only, takeout only, small restaurant is worth the trip. We ordered sesame chicken, beef and string beans (spicy) and shrimp and garlic sauce (spicy). All were fresh and full of flavor. Higher quality than typical "cheap Chinese take out".
