Went for dinner on a Saturday evening. The place was nearly empty. Now I know why. The young fellow who served us was very nice. Unfortunately, the food was very poor. We had the wonton soup and a couple of the sizzling platters. Both the lamb and chicken were oily and tasteless, veggies were sparse and not good. The Sapporo... More

My girlfriend and I also meet here for lunch. A great luncheon menu in a location that always has parking available. The staff is very accomodating and friendly. The food always fresh and good.

The one wait person we saw was polite and kind but very disorganized. The food was bland and mediocre and was served lukewarm; the waiter did take it one plate at a time to warm it up. He seemed confused about serving us, about what we wanted, etc. We will not be back.

I ate here for lunch, and everything had just the right flavor. I had the kung pao chicken lunch special, which included hot and sour soup, fried rice, and hot tea. It was delicious and not expensive ($8)! The service was also very good, though I was the only customer. The only minus is on the atmosphere, which was very... More

My husband and I were at this unfortunate place the past weekend. There were just 2 families including us, FOR GOOD REASON !!!!!! There was another family from france, trying to have a decent dinner at this place. The Crazy-Chinese waitress got into an argument with the other family and made nasty comments to us about them. We ignored it,... More

Probably the worst Chinese I've ever had and I am 50. If you want rice make sure to order it prior to the meal. You will pay extra for it. Food had absolutely no flavor. Very slow service.
