This Chinese Resturant is by far the most authentic Chinese Resturant in Orange County. I had shrimp with Lobster sauce which was truly delicious. I started with the dumpling soup which was the best this side of San Francisco

I had heard that their special egg rolls are amazing, so I thought I would do a takeout order of those, some regular egg rolls, and a mushroom beef dish. The special egg rolls were, indeed, amazing. They are nothing like I've had before. They were battered and deep-fried and filled with meat, shrimp, and vegetables. I think a couple... More

Have been looking in vain for a good Chinese restaurant for several years, after our favorite, The Ruby Palace changed hands and it took a dive for the worse (will never go back there after several tries for it to improve). This is an great find and found it on Tripadvisor. Family run and just really good! Really good sized... More

Location is convenient for us and we are greeted happily every time we come. Our first visit last year they didn't charge a corkage fee. That was a plus. Food is pretty typical for Mandarin. Our service has been good except once they were interested in something on the t.v. but we were to too so hey all good! Parking... More

The owners greeted me personally and escorted me in. The lunch menu is reasonably priced and the food delicious. The portions are generous and I always have leftovers. I have never had a bad dish. The vegetables are crispy and fresh and the sauces flavorful. The dining area is big and they have large round tables for the family or... More

This is our second visit in two months to this place. Their food is really very delicious and is served piping hot! It is a family run business and the service is so friendly and very attentive. Would recommend this place in a heartbeat for great chinese fare!

6 of us went to the GDR on Sunday. We started with pot stickers. For entrees we had the Pork Egg Foo. Their egg foo is unlike anywhere else--I find it superior to any I have had ANYWHERE !! it is a must have. The other dishes included broccoli beef, kung pao chicken, fried rice and walnut shrimp. All were... More

This place was suggested by one of my nephews who is just going to be thirteen. We had really delicious food and the helpings were generous. The owners kept coming and checking up on us to find out if everything that we had ordered was okay. All in all it was a very good experience and it has been there... More
