Went there for 20+ years. They always overfilled the take-out containers with decent food. New ownership changed to smaller containers, some dishes taste like dirty dishwater, they fill the sauce containers about 1/3 full and eliminated the free extras. Seems like a nice family, but they have made bad business decisions and maybe don't have the cooking skills anymore.

Place was a little disorganized when I went in to order. A decent size portion but nothing to write home about. Stay away from the egg foo young, not good at all.

People seem to either love or hate this place. I've tried several times over the years thinking it's just me, but my daughter says the same thing about it. So many other great choices in the area for Chinese food. This is our least favorite.

My fiancé and I have been desperately trying to find a good Asian restaurant in the East Providence area. This was not one. We found the food to be, without exaggeration, inedible. The hot and sour soup was soy sauce and slurpy I do not know what with one or two pieces of unidentifiable things. We ordered fried rice that... More

Great cheap place to grab something to go. This has become my go-to place for lunch. I drop by about 3 times a week. The huge portion is enough for me to eat it again for dinner. The food is tasty, yet not loaded with msg that is so common in Chinese food. I highly recommend this place. Even though... More

Had amazing food. One of my favorite places to eat when visiting wife's family. I don't eat there I always do pickup. Which is my suggestion for here. The crab rangoons are AMAZING. So if you're staying in the pawtucket area and craving amazing Cantonese food definitely stop here.

Our experience was not good at all, the place had disgusting smell which made us sick before the order came n the food was terrible There is no decent place to sit n eat most of the people order for take out. Maybe its cheap in price but there is no taste. Won't recommend

We didn't like any of the food we got. Had no taste and was all very dry. Had no spice to it either. Very bland dry food. Won't go their again

We order take out here weekly. Huge portions, consistantly fresh and fast. Excellent combos-love the Fried dumplings. I've never gotten so much food for the money. My kids love thier chicken fingers and rice. Not a place to eat on site-they have 2 tables inside-never seen anyone at them. Four bare walls-no frills, no pictures, not needed-place is always packed.

I love chinese food, and this is by far the best I have ever had. Their crab rangoons are to die for, and their prices are very reasonable. And they give you enough food, especially their appetizers for a minimum of two meals, mostly three. Only have gotten take out from them. Thumbs up!!!
