Very quick and efficient lunch time service. Good lunch time deals and variety. some items are available only during lunch and not on the dinner menu.

Will hit the spot if you are craving Chinese food but wouldn't go out of my way to come here. Tried some of the standards, house fried rice and moo shu pork. Okay but would try something else next time. They did have a fried seabass dish on their specials menu a friend order which was pretty tasty. Otherwise service... More

Disappointing as I was expecting better quality food from this place. Chicken was fatty and of low quality. They need to pay attention to the quality prep of the food and the meat they are using. Order something else or go elsewhere for better Chinese food as this restaurant is average from all the places I have eaten in the... More

Not the best chinese food in Phoenix. New Asian Kitchen much much better. The chicken was gristled and not vey good in the Kung pao. Better value elsewhere for the money like Chinese Cutural Center.

I've been to this place in the past with great results and this time was no exception. We started dinner with some soup. It's quite a large bowl and meant for sharing. You could easily get 4 cups of soup out of it so be prepared. We also ordered some of the crab cheese puffs and my wife enjoyed those.... More

This is my go to place - especially for lunch. You can't beat the lunch specials and they're fast. Entrée, rice, egg roll and soup. My favorite for lunch is the Orange Chicken. Huge portion and just enough heat to make things delicious. My barometer for Chinese restaurants is the Hot and Sour soup. If the Hot and Sour sucks,... More

To state the obvious, the Phoenix area is clearly not the mecca for Chinese food. Good Chinese food is very hard to find here. At the airport, an ex- New Yorker who lives in Yuma recommended the "China Chili" restaurant to me. I was a little skeptical as the only edible Chinese food that I had found to date was... More

I heard about this place so I visited for lunch to see what all the hooplah was about. The food is tasty, abundant and affordable. They have a "soup of the day" that varies every day so you do not get to pick your soup if you order from the lunch menu. They are really busy during lunch and the... More

They always are able to accommodate our large group as long as we call ahead. Ask for no MSG and the Chicken in a Basket is the best.

We wanted something not on the menu and they made it for us! That is the best thing any restaurant can do to keep a customer coming back.
