We made it 25 minutes before closing and we were not allowed to eat in. Really disappointed by the lack in costumer service as were told this. Me and my family had to walk out.

Anyone who gave this place a bad review must have had a hangover. Ate there tonight. Delicious shrimp eggfu yung - will have more tomorrow. Husband had pork tenderloin with sauce, just a little more sauce, but it was verrry tasty. Our favorite Chinese place in Palatine or anywhere for that matter.

Been craving Chinese food for quite sometime and decided to try somewhere new. Sometimes you should stick with what you know. The food was disappointing. The Veggie egg rolls were not quite up to par. I had the mongolian beef, some of the pieces were tender and some were overdone and the sauce was nothing special. The Veggie lo mein... More

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
