Excellent food attentive staff

It has been a few years since my husband and I had visited, but the food and service was excellent. Staff were attentive without being annoying. And a few of the staff remembered us.

We went there last night and had a delicious meal. Our daughter just moved into that area and we decided to try something close by, glad we did. The cheese wontons, orange chicken, honey walnut prawns were some of the best I've ever had! The service was quick and friendly. Took the take out menu as we were leaving too.... More

Good food but service is just ok. It almost always feels as if they are rushing you out and not very personable.

I visited this restaurant for the first time in February. I went during my Lunch hour. The staff was friendly. The food was very good and the lunch menu prices were very reasonable. Lunch portions were generous. I look forward to visiting again in the near future to try something different off the menu (I had the sweet and sour... More

It's OK but not as good as it use to be. The wontons in the soup are still very tasty but the broth was a bit on the tasteless side. I had the fried rice (not much to that) and the kung pow chicken which was marked on the menu with one pepper (meaning spicy) but it was very bland... More

Wonderful Chinese has always been our go to Chinese restaurant for at least 25 years. We usually order to go and the place is always busy. My daughter lived in San Francisco for a year and said she never found Chinese food as good as Wonderful!!!

For good old fashioned family-style Chinese food, this is the place! I recommend Dinner B for four. Be sure to bring a big appetite because they serve a lot of food. Service is very pleasant. Can get really crowded at meal times.

Stopped in for a late lunch/early dinner and was pleasantly surprised to find that, even on the weekend, they ran a lunch special until 3:00 p.m. I had the General's Chicken, which I found to be quite good. It came with soup, egg roll, rice, hot tea and a fortune cookie. The servings are large. I would return when I'm... More

Came here with my local family who said this place was THE BEST! I thought the food in general was just average, though I must say the "Walnut Prawns" were excellent! Maybe it was just an "off night" for the restaurant, or the other items ordered weren't my favorites.

My family and I been eating at this place for years. Just lately the service was really bad! The waitress said we gave poor tip! We tipped by her service and she gave us bad service! She didn't understand our order, but the worst thing is that when we were not finish eating she threw us boxes. She never came... More
