Good asian!

The biggest plus is the large backyard, where you can park a kid's trolley :-) the food was good, the hot and sour soup should be a bit more hot though! Definitely thumbs up for the prices, as this is one of the cheaper places in the area and the portions are big!

My husband and I were attending Shen Yun Show at Community Theatre and I had seen this restaurant in trip advisor reviews. It was excellent. Very clean, very good service and the Shanghai Chow Mein was very tasty. The chow mein had more meat than any other chow mein I have eaten and I asked for light spice and it... More

If you're downtown and looking for a great place for lunch and or dinner then this place suits you well. Very nice decor and service. You order your food at the cashier so don't forget to grab the menu at the main door! I ordered the Shanghai noodles. Your food is brought to you by the staff. My soup was... More

Terrible in both quality and quantity. Did a take out of Mongolian Beef ($8.75). My brown rice easily filled 2/3's of the box and more, and the mongolian beef entree barely filling in the rest of the box. I would say i got easily twice as much rice as I did mongolian beef. And what entree I did get was... More

Sort of surprised & disappointed about the food. Each of our dishes were soaked in neon orange & acid yellow dummy gelatinous "sauce". Having said that, it tasted better than it looked, but will not go back.

I had high hopes for this restaurant as a friend had recommended it to me. I had dinner there before going to the nearby Music Circus. I ordered the Pad Thai, which I love, but I was very disappointed in their version. The noodles were gummy and very unpleasant. I only ate a small portion of it, didn't even want... More

Like many Asian diners, this was good and predictable. We wanted a meal without noise and crowds and this fit the bill. My husband loved the huge bowl of soup.

Very tasty Asian food. Extremely popular with my fellow conference attendees, but the crowd was moved efficiently through the restaurant. They do identify the vegan options on their menu, but they keep that information behind the counter, so I didn't know about it until I questioned the order taker about the ingredients in different dishes. I had the teriyaki bowl... More
