Always friendly, quick, service and fun abiance, especially if you're a local. The walls are imprinted with the brands used by the historical families of the area as this used to be a more western flavored establishment, some time back. Rarely crowded, usually quiet and the waiters keep a close eye on you and are quick to be there if... More

Absolutely Fresh vegetables. A very warm welcome at a family-owned restaurant. We chose the most authentic items we could. They do serve some 'Americanized' Chinese dishes. They even offer Sushi, a pleasant surprised.

Came here as girlfriend wanted Chinese food during our visit. This place is a hole in the w4all, non-descript place located on Broadway in downtown Sonora. Place has been in business here since 1974. Not sure what the decor theme was inside, an old time coal lantern hanging with new, large Christmas bulb, or several stuffed animal heads..anyway, we were... More

Ordered take out... Large portions of poor food. General chicken was comparable to orange chicken at a mall food square. No flavor.

We came here on the recommendation of the front desk at the hotel. The staff was very friendly but the food surely did not meet my expectations of god Chinese food. The sauces were very bland and I thought was very expensive for the quality.

We went to this restaurant on the recommendation of the hotel front desk clerk. Although the service was prompt, our first clue that this place was bad, was the decor. Old stuffed moose and elk heads on the wall, branding irons along with chinese laterns, Christmas balls ornaments hanging from fish mouths.......it was obviously a western theme restaurant at one...

The food was great. The selection was great. The service was quick. I could not understand why they had floor fans out, but after sitting for awhile, I realized the A/C was not working. Outside of the the hot restaurant, the food is what mattered and I would come back again. The food was like I was eating in San... More

The Walnut Shrimp is out of this world! Their Hot & Sour Soup is also fantastic as a fixer-upper when you're under the weather. Great family atmosphere, convenient to theatre, hotels and event halls in Sonora. The Cantonese tradition is carried well here.
