3.5 out of 5 We came here on a weeknight. The place was not crowded. It's relatively clean with access to a television no matter where you're seated. I was not expecting much from this place. But I have to say, I was very surprised at the food. It was very delicious! One dish that really stuck out was the... More

I was there in April 8th 2013. Not bad for price. Decent Chinese, better than Panda Express. Panda Express is not Chinese, I realize. Give green Island a try.

This place is branded as "Chinese fusion" place but you can have many traditional dishes. Only difference I noticed from traditional Chinese restaurant is they use less oil and display is really modernized with waiters wearing handfree headset to send order right away.

We selected it from the other restaurants in the mall from the previous review but chose different dishes--barbecued pork appetizer, fried rice with sirloin (came free as part of a deal), taro with duck, and sea cucumber. The last was recommended by the server as a favorite of older people for... More

All the dishes we ordered were very good. We had the Fish Filet w/Corn, Clams w/Basil Leaves (excellent!), Clams w/Black Bean Sauce (on the salty side), House Special Filet Mignon (delicious!), Frogs w/bitter melon, and Sauteed Frog w/Lemon Grass in XO Sauce. I'd recommend the House Special Filet and the Clams w/Basil Leaves. All-you-can-drink drinks, including Thai Ice Tea! Restaurant... More
