And yes, the menu is huge, as Chinese menus always are. We mostly order take out over the phone and go pick it up (under 3 miles one way for us). We love the owners are Chinese and are a bit difficult to understand, but that's part of the fun and charm. The food is always good and hot. The... More

Good food served hot and fast. The restaurant was a little hard to find with not much Parking, but parking was easy to find just drive around the block.

Too expensive for Chinese food and not as good as many other restaurants where we've eaten. I love egg drop soup but not their version. Portion size okay if you like the food.

We frequently order food to go from here, and it's always ready when I get there. The portions are generous. The food is very good. Kung Pao and Szechuan are especially good.

I wish this place was better. It's expensive and the food isn't any better then what you can buy from the freezer section at the grocery store. Very disappointing.

The restaurant itself leaves a lot to be desired and the owner-well, just hope you catch her on a good day. Of the 3 timers eat in and the two take out orders-we have overpaid 5 times. She charges what she wants to not by what the menu says. It seems to depend on the day and time of day... More

Even though this is the only Chinese food restaurant in town, I think you'll agree that it's one of the better one's you've eaten at!
