We tried the restaurant upon recommendation of the hotel where we stayed. It seems to be very popular, with families, groups and couples there tonight. A pot of hot tea was served immediately after we were seated. We each ordered the House fried rice prepared with chicken, shrimp and beef. We really could have shared one order of fried rice,...

Friday night the restaurant was busy but the service was fast and good value. There is an extensive menu and a number of specials. We had four meals all but the almond chicken were good. I have never seen a waiter working as hard and fast as here.

We visited based on Trip Advisor reviews. What we didn't know was that the lunch menu was VERY reasonable and there was no way you would leave hungry! Every meal was served with hot tea, soup, fried Rangoon and an egg roll. More than enough for one!

I live in the area and get take out from Wonderful House on a regular basis. The take out portions are generous and I usually get two meals out of it. Shrimp and Chicken is my favorite and I always have them make it spicy. (medium spicy) It comes mild on the sit down menu.

This is a typical looking Chinese. They easily accommodated our group of 10. The service was fast if not a little abrupt, but I think that is normal. The prices were very reasonable and the portions were large but not ridiculous. If I had to say one thing it's that tge dining room was a little crowded so if you... More

We ate at this restaurant last night and chose the Happy Family family style meal. The food was good even if it wasn't "the best" Chinese food I have ever eaten. I did think the sweet and sour chicken may have been the best but I have had tastier fried rice and eggrolls. Don't get me wrong though, we enjoyed... More

Open late (9:30 on weeknights) and the service was superior, with Kendall Jackson wine to go with outstanding food and very nice portions. Really liked the hot and sour soup, plus the shrimp in entrees were large. We'll definitely return whenever we're in the area.

We go to this restaurant fairly often. It is always consistent in the quality of their meals. I I always try to have something new but I do have my favorites too. The staff is always very friendly and the service is fast.

We ordered delivery from this restaurant and the service was quite quick. The food was ok, a bit on the bland side, in spite of requesting extra spicy. In a pinch, I would order from them again, but I certainly would not go out of my way.

While traveling we decided to stop and eat in Trinidad. Went to Tripadvisor for advice. When we arrived, I wasn't sure what to expect by the outside of the building. The food is really good. I had the curry chicken. My husband had the General Tso's. The kids meals were huge and my kids loved it. One of my kids... More
