We got take-out for nine people...a Christmas dinner. The duck was way over cooked, full of bones and tough;the garlic broccoli was so overlooked it was mushy and light green; the fish was over salted. What a mess. Never again. Next time Thai.

We have gone to dinner here several times on my trips home, as my mom likes the cake noodles, and my brother the kau yuk. I like it, it is good, the oyster chicken isn’t as good as Ling’s but everything was good. I would recommend ordering off the menu and not the buffet though. And it is affordable.
