Love their hot and sour soup and other Szechuan dishes, but everything on the menu is extra tasty and never boring. Won ton soup is also special. Order ahead for take-out, reservations recommended most nights. A-1.

We have always been very happy with the quality of the food after over 30 years of coming to this restaurant. The service is wonderful, Sam is terrific. You cannot go wrong coming here when wanting delicious Chinese food.
