Had pot stickers for appetizer; big and fat; sauce a little too spicy for wife. Steamed fish and veggies was OK; sauce was a little bland. Dry-sauteed green beans with chicken was very good; chicken pieces were a little too big to handle with chopsticks. Service was marginal; one guy was doing all the work while the others were getting in the way; had to wait a long time for check.

We like this as the local Chinese restaurant. Every place needs one! Food is reliably pretty good. Service is fine. It's never too busy to get a table easily. The decor is dated and a bit downtrodden. The servers are mostly of Chinese ancestry. So in summary, exactly what you'd expect from this restaurant. N.B. They also do some takeout business so you might hit a line at the register if you time your exit from restaurant table poorly.

It was the worst ever orange chicken I had. It was all skins with almost no real meat covered with a caramel like thick and too sweet sauce. Not eaterable and the rice was lumpy and cold. The sweet and sour soup was too sour over cooked and cold. What a fiasco!

We were hungry after a wedding. It was Sunday evening and we were unsure what was open in the area. We got right in. It was moderately busy. The menu was broad with several standard Asian food options and an equal number of non standard. The staff was friendly and attentive and the decor was standard Asian food sit down restaurant. They did have an extensive wine list. Our food was all fresh and hot. The quality of ingredients was high and the food was fast and flavorful with out being greasy.

Downsides. The lights jet dimming while we were there

Upsides. Fast fresh food. Reasonably priced. Family atmosphere
