I really like how they offer Chinese and Japanese. We ordered sushi and some Chinese. The delivery was very quick, food was hot. Husband loves sake sushi and was disappointed with the quality for the price. He felt he would order again if it was more reasonable per order. Otherwise spicy tuna and avocado rolls were good (I'd order them... More

The owners refurbished this restaurant a few years ago and extended the menu to include Japanese and Thai dishes as well as the more familiar Chinese favorites. At first the place remained quiet and there were occasions still when we where among only a handful of customers. Not every dish on the menu was perfect but there were and remain... More

Always so friendly and welcoming. Very fast on his feet. Eddie, Joe and Leeza. All so nice and friendly. There is a lot of... More

Definitely our go-to Chinese restaurant! Amazing food, attentive service and beautiful decor. Recently, they just started selling bubble tea which adds even more to this place!

I look forward to getting Chinese from here everytime I visit my parents. We get a variety of dishes and I'm always happy with the results. I've always done take out. On my most recent visit, I had my 14 month old with me and the staff was very friendly and chatty while I waited for the food to finish... More

One waitress seems to have an attitude. Food is bad to average depending on what you order. (Crispy beef was gross.). We also ordered fried dumplings and they gave us wrong order. Instead of replacing entire order waitress subtracted the 2 we had tried that were given by mistake. This place is not good.

I think the experience and food would have been better had we eaten it -- hotter, fresher. It wasn't bad, just kind of average. The crispy shrimp and crispy beef were tasty, but anything but crispy.

The food is fair and comparable compared to all the other such establishments in Herndon/Reton area. But today , the Sunomono Salad ($8.50) Surf clam, crabmeat, carrots, octopus, shrimp with rice vinegar dressing was a mega disappointment. For 8.50 you got a plate full of shredded carrots (plenty) one imitation crab stick cut four ways, two small fanned shrimp, two... More
