Be careful when paying cash for your meal at this restaurant. I took my family of five to dinner here on 12/5/2013. The bill came to $65.00 to which I handed the waitress $80.00 cash for payment. Since I was expecting $15.00 cash back for my bill, I sat there patiently waiting for her to come back to me. After... More

Chinese menu in the restaurant with a full bar attached as well. I was disappointed not having Barbequed Pork on the menu, but the chicken dish was well prepared. All items are ala carte.

We chose this restaurant in preference to the many local take-aways. We arrived after 9 and it seemed that they were close to closing although there were two tables occupied. We sat and needed to ask some questions about the menu. Wanting a fish option we asked what fish it was. The server checked with the kitchen and reported back... More

The food was OK, but nothing special. Minimal service or attention for the price. Felt like my presence was an imposition.

This restaurant goes largely unnoticed near a busy intersection in Napa, which is too bad. More people should eat here. I'm surprised that I'm only the second Trip Advisor reviewer. We went on a recommendation by local friends who say they eat here "frequently." The food is great, and the service is friendly, by people who seem to really enjoy... More

food is always cooked tasty. Sometimes I just walk in and order instead of calling and I'm always amazzed at how quick they are. This is my favorite Chinese restaurant in town and I've been to them all.
