This hole in the wall has great Chinese dishes. Takeaway is quick and sit down is in a friendly atmosphere.

We love General Tso's so much I have the number programmed into my phone!! The food quality is always great and consistent. The menu never changes, but that's OK since I am a creature of habit and always order the same things. The szechuan chicken is our favorite!

Before we visited it, we thought it was going to be a Taiwanese restaurant that impressed us. The flavor turned out to be average American Chinese as some typical Chinese takeout restaurants. We ordered four lunch specials and their apperance looked quite similar and tasted similar too. The hot and sour soup came with the lunch special was hot but... More

Terrible experience. Order lo mein was just plain white noodles with absolutely no sauce. Crab Rangoon was not crispy is was soggy and gave no dipping sauce. Tried to call and get sauce and they could not understand me. Literally worst asian food experience in my life and I've had a lot of cheap asian food.

What can I say? We like General Tso's. To be honest, there is a better Chinese restaurant nearby (long-time establishment on Bethel Road), but it's twice the price of General Tso's and not twice as good. General Tso's is our "go to" for carry out, and we sometimes dine in. The food is good. It's fast. And it's very reasonably... More

I love this place for quick take out Chinese food. The people who I assume own this place are so warm and friendly, and they seem to have a special skill at cooking in this common food genre. I travel a lot and eat take out Chinese often, and for the most part its all the same. This place has... More

This restaurant is a bit of a hole in the wall. They do have seating which I've done on occassion, but mostly I order take out (even for parties when I don't have time to cook). Their Pad Thai is the best I've found with just the right amount of chicken, egg, spice, oil and noodles. They'll also add shrimp... More
