My favorite Chinese and I live 45 miles away. Stop in when I'm in Pasco. Restaurant itself dated but clean. Lounge needs to open earlier as I prefer to wait there for my take out.

Want your meeting to look clandestine? Then this is the place!! The atmosphere reeks late 40's, but in a good way. It's a little darker inside, with tall booths. The food has been my absolute favorite CHINESE since the 80's. It is traditional Chinese, the way we remember it from take-out Fridays of the past. The service is friendly, the... More

I've been going to this restaurant since the early 1980's. Their food is really really good, and you get a lot of food for your money. Their staff is very quick and friendly. The restaurant is huge and seats many many people, There's also two separate rooms which seats groups of families. If you are a Chinese food lover, you... More

I have never eaten in the restaurant, though it is very popular with locals between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. I have picked up take out Chinese food which was delicious. I would recommend checking your bags to make sure all of your food is in the bags. The restaurant is dark inside and I haven't wanted to sit in... More

This is not good food. Over-salted, extra greasy, and, by the look of the establishment, I'm not sure how sanitary it is. The service was average at best. This place has been here for a long time. I can't quite figure out how. Pasco citizens must have very poor expectations, or very poor taste buds. It's almost unbelievable that a... More

I am extremely mind boggled by all the positive reviews. I can only assume those people never had good chinese food, because this IS NOT GOOD CHINESE FOOD! It is like it came from a can and disguised with other seasoning. My family couldn't wait to leave and buy over priced snacks at the airport.

My husband and I enjoy the wonderful flavors of the many dishes served here. We especially like the egg flower soup. It is so refreshing and satisfying. We often order the fried wontons and BBQ pork as side dishes. We always have more than we can eat, so we have left overs for the next day. One could order one... More

We are always satisfied when we dine here, the waitress knows us from the many visits we've had, food is always good, sometimes service can be a little slow but the owner picks up the slack when they get a little busy and takes care of us, and if your a drinker you must visit the bar, you get your...

Finally food shows up, missing half the meal. So we call back, and the best they come up with is 'crazy busy'. Finally comp the meal after 3 hours... More

Good for take out or delivery. Restaurant old & dated. I ordered take out from the lounge & had a couple beers while I waited. Asparagus chicken was excellent.
