We drive from Woodbridge for take-out. The husband and wife team, he is the chef and she works the front are fantastic. Very friendly and care about the food. We have never been disappointed. Every dish is filled with fresh, crisp vegetables and the sauces are filled with flavor and not overpowering. We have a few favorites like the Mango... More

We stopped by for lunch. This is one of those places that isn't easy to find unless you are familiar with the neighborhood. It's small inside. It's a clean and friendly mom and pop operation. We tried the Szechuan Chicken and the Drunken Noodles. Very good! Most of the entrees come with soup and white or brown rice . Portions... More

Have been going here for years. Fantastic flavors in every dish. The challenge is to decide what to eat. Friendly service. Worth a visit

Home made chinese food! It is fresh and yummy. Sometimes they get backed up, but good food is worth the wait! Yummy guava candy in the bowl up front!

Small cozy restaurant - food is excellent. Restaurant does not have a bar but does serve a single glass of wine with the meal. Servings are very adequate and the price is reasonable.

The food here is good. Portions are not huge but are reasonable. The food is excellent though. So you can go somewhere else and eat a lot or go here and really enjoy what you eat.

Have no idea about the food because they did not honor our reservation. We arrived 5 minutes early - all tables full and none anywhere near done. Most just seated. Woman acknowledged our reservation and then walked away to take a table's order. No apology. Man at desk said they need a bigger restaurant. No apology. We walked out. I... More

this small, sparkling restaurant has the best Chinese food around. At dinner you can get a complimentary glass of wine. We love their soups, the cold sesame noodles, the specials ---and especially the friendly service by the owner.

My sister and I went here for lunch. I was disappointed to not see dumplings on the lunch specials, but the soups and rices that came with the lunch specials were both delicious. The hot and sour soup was a veggie hot and sour soup which was very good. The broth for the wonton soup lacked flavor but the entrees... More
