Ok, so we went here based on all the good reviews and what a disappointment it was. It started with drinks, no Chinese tea, only black tea that arrived lukewarm. When we told the waitress she felt the pot and said 'oh'......I ordered white rice, they gave me brown rice, rectified it and both the brown and white rice where... More

This is probably the best Chinese food I have ever eaten. Service is pretty good, nothing to complain about. They always have a great health score posted on the wall. The only draw back is the building is really old. Restrooms are in very poor shape. Also could use a larger selection of drinks. It's the south how about some... More

We stopped in for lunch. Hot & sour soup is the best we have found in the area. We drive over from Sevierville just for the soup. We ordered the Imperial Chicken combo & it was great as always.

This is a nice place food is okay for a quick bite. I have had better food but it was not too bad. The service does need some improvements. Prices are reasonable for the quality.

We came and enjoyed the large portions. They have a very large menu with dishes not normally seen at a Chinese buffet. Everyone left happy

Far exceeded our expectations.....the best Chinese we've had. Selections and pricing were Excellent. Food quality, seasoning, and portions were great and served piping hot. The server we had was very personable, knowledgeable of the menu, and efficient....caring but not overbearing. As we left she made a point of thanking us and inviting us back. The outside appearance of the restaurant... More

Since moving to Knoxville about a month ago my husband and I have eaten at probably 8 different Asian restaurants and this one is at the top of the list. We drove by and made a mental note to return. Good thing we did. This little restaurant is delicious. The service is kind and prompt. The portions are huge. I've... More

This is a well hidden jewel in Knoxville! The modest surroundings mask the treat you have in store. Food is freshly prepared, well-presented and in portions certain to satisfy even the chow-hounds in your group. I have lived in Knoxville for over 20 years and have been disappointed in some way by every Asian restaurant I have tried. Not this... More

We decided to give this place a try after seeing the reviews and it was worth it. Our server Hailey was right on point keeping everything full and answering any questions we had. Very polite. Atmosphere was very casual but expected for a small family restaurant. Food was hot and very fresh but cooked well. They have a garlic chili... More

I was a little creeper by this place at first, but the food more than made up for the odd building. This building clearly used to be a Wendy's, but no cheap burgers will be found here. What you will find is very hot, very delicious Chinese food. All of our food came out piping hot and fresh. Service was... More
