Everything but the dumplings is made in-house and the owner has banging recipes that make every morsel of food just melt in your mouth. The owners are friendly, as are the wait staff.

We normally get take out, but decided to stop and eat here. Service was friendly and fast. They have a large menu, as most Chinese restaurants do. I had the Hot and Sour Soup, Beef Teriyaki with Pork Fried Rice, Egg Roll and Crab Rangoon. I also had a cute of my boyfriends General Tso's Chicken and broccoli. All was... More

This is one restaurant we try to visit when in the area. Usually it's Prawns and Walnuts but this time it was on Sunday and we decided to choose the Buffet. It wasn't a mistake. It wasn't expensive and well stocked. The standard menu is probably our favorite but the buffet is a good alternative.

We stopped here with friends at about 8:30 pm on a Wednesday night. There are few restaurants open this late in Bellows Falls, and we were glad they were open. We ordered heavy appetizers and drinks, and everything was great. The spare ribs (bone in) are fabulous! Atmosphere was pleasant, and we had a table out on the porch by... More

Very poor. I'm surprised it can keep going. I was their on a busy Christmas Eve so I won't complain about the awful service.

Just OK the wait staff forgets things (that we were there) Then when they remember they want to rush you in and out. Why do Chinese restaurants do that? The view was very nice. I would not travel back, we stopped on our way home form a trip.

Other than NY Chinatown, my favorite Chinese restaurant. Food is consistently excellent and always prepared the same. Fresh ingredients, many of which are brought up twice weekly from NY Chinatown. Owners are very pleasant and friendly and you can tell they truly appreciate your business. Love this place!

A repeat visit after a year away and we found the restaurant atmosphere wonderful, the Waite staff good, but the food was hot/tasty and would highly recommend a drive up the river and try for yourself.

Be adventurous and try something you have never eaten before. The place was crowded and somewhat noisey but the food more than made up for it.
