Not too bad, not great, but it was quick and hot! I ordered quite a few things of the menu. The biggest complaint that I had was the seafood dish, it has scallops, shrimp, crab and lobster.

I never write reviews, but I had to this time. We were staying in Doswell this past weekend and the menus were at the front counter of our hotel. We weren't starving, but still wanted something.

PuPu Platter & Wonton soup are incredibly delicious. Try these elsewhere and you'll come back here. Their Hunan Chicken is outstanding with fresh succulent broccoli and tender chicken pieces. Schezuan dishes are not spiced with Schezuan peppers due to bland American palates(Bummer).

I eat here all the time. I always order the sweet and sour chicken and rice. Some are good, others are bad. My friend loves the schezchuan chicken. However the hot and sour soup is horrible. It needs more spice.
