Basic good inexpensive Chinese food in a setting you would expect. Free wine makes it even better (first glass, white only). Where else can 4 people eat for under $75.00 including tax and tip.

Been going here for more years than I'd care to admit to. Always acceptable classic American Chinese cuisine. Pleasant atmosphere with pleasant service, you get your dollars worth.

The ambiance is nice and it is and established in Glen Cove, so it feels like its success is taken for granted and the food is not that great because it doesn't have to be.
