Love these guys. Inexpensive, good and very friendly. In my opinion, best chinese food in Napa. Been here 14 years and this is where I go.

I've been coming here for years. Really nice selection, from mild to spicy. They've got pork chops too. Staff is the best in downtown Napa... in fact, this is where downtown Napa workers eat! What's that tell you?
