Good for quick, cheap lunch

They give you a lot of food on the lunch special. Soup, fried rice and a main course for about $7. Food is just ok. Not worth a special trip.

My family has been coming here for the past 17 years and we've never been disappointed. They recently renovated so it looks nice inside. Their noodle dishes are delicious and I am in love with their fried potstickers! Absolutely the best! And the price isn't too bad either. The portions are large. I'll probably go back next week!
