The food here is generally really good - and their lunch specials are super. There are a few dishes that are only so-so, but the rest are spectacular (way better than good or average). Singapore noodles are a favorite, as are Salt & Pepper Shrimp. Service is always really good. We like to eat here and people watch from a... More

We switched to this place pretty fast. It offers the highest quality Chinese food I've found in the area that will deliver to my apartment. It is slightly more expensive, but the increase in quality is definitely worth the extra dollar or two a plate. They've always delivered on time and the food is always good quality! I would recommend... More

What started out as a good Chinese restaurant then added Thai fare seemed to lose direction.

This place bills itself as the best Chinese food in town. It think it's the only Chinese restaurant in Toluca Lake. As for the food...to say it's average is being kind. The walnut shrimp was slathered with mayonnaise, giving the seafood little chance to express itself. The orange peel chicken was passable. The pan fried lo mein was overcooked with... More

I was in a hurry and actually asked if the chicken dishes came out fast. I was told they did and they were right. I don't do spicy, so I order the Cashew Chicken. It came out fast and hot. It was tasty and filling. The restaurant is simple, but nice inside. It was clean and busy on a weeknight.... More

First of all, its hard to find a parking space around there. My first impression from the out side is a cute cafe, they received an "A" rating from the county's health department, that's a good sign. Inside, the best thing was the nice fireplace with a mantel other than that the place looks run-down with ripped and stained carpet... More

Your basic Chinese restaurant. Very large menu, decent food, decent prices. Decor and atmosphere is so-so, servers are very polite and attentive. I like the BBQ pork fried rice and all the veggie dishes; but the lemon chicken was disappointing -- a thickly-breaded and deep-fried whole chicken breast with what tasted like lemon syrup poured over it. My friend adores... More
