This is a nice place for Chinese food on the island. We took our family and enjoyed a few items. Some better than others. Service was quick and the food was good.

Friendly staff. The food is only okay. We got sweet and sour pork takeout for lunch. The fried rice was dry and bland, but was fine when mixed with the delicious sweet and sour sauce. Lots of sauce. Maybe 8-10 chunks of pork. Relatively inexpensive for lunch in Avalon.

This restaurant has the best Chinese food and in generous portions. This place is a best value for lunch and dinner> Locals like myself absolutely love the garlic green beans.

While not your typical mainland Chinese restaurant, the food is great and the staff is very friendly. Seems to be popular with the locals and very fast!
