Pleasantly surprised

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

I was standing outside of Target one day, while my wife ran in to get something. I noticed this tiny restaurant and walked up to the door to look in. The rest is history. This is one of my favorite places in COS, and had basically ruined my desire to ever eat at any other Chinese restaurant. The service is... More

Stopped in for dinner with my husband before attending a play on the U of Colorado - Colorado Springs campus. When we first walked in, the only person we could see was on the phone taking a to-go order, so we just stood there for a few minutes. We sat ourselves, but shortly thereafter the sweetest lady came to take... More

This is your very very basic strip mall Chinese restaurant. I go by this area often but easy to miss by the based on the name. I always thought is was a import shop like Pier 1. Mom and Pop feel with very reasonable prices, better than average food and attentive service. Not high end but clean and neat. Recommended!

My husband and I went for lunch after reading rave reviews by the food critic for the local newspaper (Gazette). The prices are good and one gets a lot of food. The vegetables are fresh and not overcooked. The wonton and egg roll were greasy, the fried rice, just rice, and everything was over salted and had MSG. The service... More

Nice small restaurant with great service and a generous amount of wonderful tasting food. Decided to stop by and try restaurant and was very pleased with both the service, quality and the amount of food. Had to take half of it home because there was so much food. My teen son loved his sesame chicken. Great value for your money!

This place was recommended by my hotel's front desk. Got a lot of food for not much money! Wonton soup was above average, with vegetables and good flavor in the wonton filling. I didn't care for the fried rice- it was just rice without any veggies or egg. Beef lo mein was good, but a little dry Indy opinion. Good... More
