Been going in and also doing takeout since they opened years ago. Food is always adequate but cannot recall ever having a truly memorable meal. Broccoli and beef, Kung Pao chicken, and the Pork fried Rice are a few of the more enjoyable offerings. Engaging and friendly owners.

Their soup is delicate in flavor, yet robust with ingredients. Their portions are AMPLE - to where you may not finish it all. What I didn't like is the Sweet and Sour is watered down - and comes in a syrup container. Their Hot Sauce is A++++++. Great Wait Staff, Knowledgeable - while one man could stand to smirk a... More

Excellent Chinese food with fresh premium ingredients and wonderful service. The decor and atmosphere are right out of 1991.

Second time I've tried and will not go back. Shrimp not fresh, fatty chicken. Gross! I think the rest of the reviews have to be made up.

We've been eating here for years and the food is always consistently great. We do take-out a lot and our order are always ready on time and hot. I've asked for some changes to be made to some of my order selections and they are happy to oblige. Friendly staff and they're always open!
