Stopped by for a quick lunch. We ordered the pot-stickers and they were great. Didn't really care for the dipping sauce (a little greasy), but the pot stickers themselves were excellent! I had the Chicken Pad Thai, my hubby had Sweet and Sour Chicken. Both were excellent! Great place to visit and can't wait to return.

Went over with my wife for sunday lunch as we both felt like Chinese food and had never tried that nice looking more on the fancy looking Chinese restaurant. Spring roll was good but OMG the sweet and sour pork was worse than what you find in food courts in all major malls. Dried miniature pieces of pork covered with... More

I am actually sitting here writing this review because none of the staff actually seem to care that we are NOTHING off our plates. It took at least 5 minutes after being seated before a server came to greet us. We ordered steamed pork dumplings - which were mediocre at best. My partner ordered the chicken with broccoli and ordered... More

Have been getting carry out from this restaurant at a regular basis. Soy sauce is always included in the bag. Today I dared to ask for Chinese mustard. Was told I had to pay 45 cents extra. In the meantime I am looking at the big plastic container behind the counter...filled to the top with Chinese mustard packages. Shaking my... More

This place was close to Embassy Suites and we were very hungary. The carpet was disgusting and food mediocre. However, I became quite ill after dining and would not recommend this place.

Nice place. Excellent service, fresh food prepared in a large portion and served hot. Would recommend going. Seating inside or tables on the street outside, very pleasant.

I've worked near this popular Chinese eatery for years. In fact, it's the go-to takeout place when my office decides to put a lunch out. The food smells good when it arrives. And some of the dishes are very tasty. But I find the cooking spotty. My biggest complaint is that the meats and especially the seafood are often overdone.... More
