Good value for money

I am a regular visitor to this restaurant. I find the food to be of good quality and the servers to be knowledgeable, courteous, helpful and friendly. If you enjoy Chinese food, this is the place for you.

I eat out here quite frequently. At least once a week for 2 months. The food has been day and night. Most of the time hard chicken balls like they were reused, the rice this time taste like minute maid and was not chicken fried. Our chow mien which is why we went there all the time was the worst...

Good value and selection of combination plates. The service was very attentive. However the food quality left a lot to be desired. Chicken balls were rather uninteresting, and the fried rice was overcooked, or reheated one too many times. The grains were dry and hard. I wouldn't go back, mainly because of the food quality.

When we phoned, we were told that it would arrive in about 45 minutes. Over an hour later, we phoned back and were told that it had been sent... More
