It's delicious!

Food taste great! Food that we'd ordered were cooked in clear sauce and not in dark or oyster sauce. Hence, the vegetables color are noticeable and fresh too. The female owner is truly friendly. She comes to our table many times smiling, ensuring our needs are met. Exceptional! She even made us... read more

If you are ordering in from a hotel, make sure you have utensils! I ordered 35 dollars worth of food, no plates or forks or spoons, and I asked for them. I called to complain/see what could be done (it was 840 at this point) and I first got someone who spoke no english at all. And the next time... More

I normally hate ordering Chinese food and generally avoid eating it period, but my experience with them yesterday has completely changed my mind! The egg rolls were amazing, sesame chicken was perfect, not too much breading, but still perfectly crispy covering chunks of chicken, they don't skimp out on you! The dumplings were the best, extremely delicious. I'll be ordering... More

A little Chinese place near Target. I saw it and decided to give it a try. First, the older man in charge was fantastic- always on the move, taking orders, delivering food to tables - he was brilliant. The food itself was good, MUCH better than the lunch I had a week earlier at PF Changs and at almost half... More

We enjoyed having lunch here! Hadn't realized this place even existed, though we live very nearby. Has a hole in the wall feel - but you get a lot of food for the price - good soup, sesame chicken is great, and service is pleasant. We will return.

I think we found our new favorite Chinese restaurant. Everything was very good. Very freindly service with fair prices. A little slow bringing check at end but will definitely be back.

This is a little hole in the wall place you won't want to miss! It is just a few doors down from Target in the shopping center at Palmer and Academy. There are tables and booths as well. The little man who takes your order is very polite and sharp as a tack. The second time we went in there,... More

It is easy to overlook this little place, with its name and being in a strip mall, but my husband and I were looking for some Chinese food in the area and decided to check it out based on the positive reviews. When you walk in there are booths on both sides of each wall and then a line of... More
