Stopped here on way to airport and had a great meal. it wasn't very fast but that is because they are very busy at lunch time and make everything to order. The hot & sour soup was very tasty as was the mu shu chicken. Tea was great, super hot. I would stop here again. Oh, the service was very... More

Excellent food. We saw this on Trip Advisor and it was close to our hotel. Great food at a reasonalbe price. We had a carry out prepared in less than ten minutes and it was more than both of us could eat. Do not be put off by the fact it only has two tables. The service is excellent.

On our way back to our hotel we stopped in to order. Before we ordered, some customers were leaving and reassured us the food is fantastic and they come here... More

I have never been inside, as I always order to be delivered. But they are FAST, the food always arrives hot, and the delivery staff is courteous. Their Crab Rangoon is 'almost' as good as my wife's ;-) I travel 100% for work, and depend completely on eating out. Restaurants only get one shot with me, and I am ordering... More
