Very accomodating

My husband is a strict vegan and doesn't eat any oil or butter, We were hesitant to eat here, but decided to go. They were so accommodating and it was a great experience.

This restaurant is approximately ten years beyond needing a complete interior remodel and a lot of the staff could also use a remodel. Food is average, portions somewhat small for price, service and staff attitudes are poor and the place is a mess. Bathrooms and hall to bathrooms are a disaster. I hate paying for anything like this and I... More

Whenever I go to this restaurant, which is nearly every time I'm in the area (I live 70 minutes away), it feels like old home week. I've been coming here about 20 years. The service is warm and gracious. My allergy doctor told me I probably wasn't allergic to shell food anymore, and I couldn't wait to try the shrimp... More

I almost turned around and left when I saw the condition of the interior. The carpet is worn and dirty, the paint is chipped, the reception desk is cluttered, etc. I'm glad I decided to stay. The service was very warm and friendly. My food was outstanding. I was in the mood for soup, so I ordered the large bowl... More

Favorite lunch place for my wife and me. Extensive menu but we are always drawn to the tbree flavor noodle soup. It is a huge serving and although I always get rid of mine, my wife always has enough left over for lunch the next day. Extensive menu and great service should please anybody.

I've been going to this restaurant for lunch for about 20 years, and I'm never disappointed. The lunch menu has approximately 35 items on it -- I think the most expensive is $8.95. All entrees are served family style so you can share. The following comes with your meal: soup (won ton or hot and sour), egg roles, paper-wrapped chicken,... More

The waiters are very attentive, service is quick and food is yummy. They have no problem seating a big group. I like that they have their lunch specials even on weekends.

We've been going to this restaurant for more than 25 years. A few years ago the original owners sold the restaurant and the new owners kept most of the menu items, adding a few others. We used to enjoy the House Panfried Noodles and the honey pecan shrimp. We noticed that the staff aren't as nice, so we haven't been... More

We've been eating here for over 20 years and the sizzling rice soup (with chicken, shrimp etc.) is the best I've had. They also have an endless list of food choices for both lunch and dinner. The kind of place that you will return to time-after-time.

Over twenty five years ago I went to this restaurant for lunch with co-workers and loved the food and the value. I moved away and recently was in the area and tried it again for lunch. Fantastic - the same as before and only went up in price a couple of dollars. Freshly made and several courses for less than... More
