Food was very good and the wait staff was very attentive. We had the orange chicken and broccoli beef. Both were good.

Okay, Okay, Okay, I know! Food was quite fine, but accommodations were very distracting. The booths were micro-fibre (nice mid brown shade) which was highly matted and discolored (black) from dropped food! Had to sit on it; like sitting on an old couch in an auto repair shop where the mechanics took their breaks. Edges of tables were scraped down to bare wood. Menu has great offerings. Got bit by beverage menu. Nice beer choices, but only Sapporo on tap; ordered Sapporo on tap, listed on menu! Upsized to Large: Delivered in a large bottle! Neither menu nor server mentioned that Sapporo on-tap is ONLY the small size; the LARGE size is bottled! Quite upsetting! Maybe my own problem but the menu did not in any way indicate that the on-tap was only in SMALL size.

Should this distract from the food served? It certainly distracts from the overall atmosphere. It's up to you! Scraped table edges don't reflect on cleanliness, but matted and discolored seating booths surely do, for me!

The floor layout provides three distinct service areas: 1) the Sushi bar; 2) the main dining area where we sat: and 3) a bar area with both bar and normal floor table seating areas. Lots of flexibility for groups when needed.

Food: We shared the Sweet & Sour Shrimp; Super dish. Comes with Hot/Sour soup: OK but not great. Egg roll OK. No tea offered. No noodles to snack on. Fried rice with entree was not well mixed & fried, lots of white rice clumps.

Service was prompt and friendly. Only problem was the Sapporo beer misunderstanding. I blame the menu layout, but the server should have pointed out that the large size was not on-tap.

This was our 1st visit in a couple of years and was very disappointing.

This place has been aroudn for a long time used to be called the golden Chinese palace or something liek that. They remodeled it and added sushi. Which is strange for a Chinese restaurant but somehow it works
