Prett Good but New Owner

Seemed different and I asked if there was new owner. I was told by the new owner no. Food was still pretty decent, but some dishes have already changed.

Have gone here for years. The owners sold and the food is horrible. My favorite dish, which had a lot of flavor, now has none. I went to go pick up my order and the young girl told me to please wait a minute. She was texting!! Then she picked up the phone to take another call and let me... More

Exactly what you expect from a Chinsese place, good food at a good price. They have a good usual choice of Chinses Menu, and some Mongolian Meals type as well, it is not the best Chinese food I had in the US, but it is good and the pricing is good too

Have been a loyal customer for years and previously had a problem with a dish that was fixed so continued to order! Very happy until our last order when we received a dish short so ruined our family meal! Was accused of swearing at them which was a total lie and disgusted at the attitude received! Wl never order again... More

We were really hungry on a Sunday at 5:00 as we had skipped lunch, so we decided to have an early dinner. The food was very good - portions were huge. We had an entire meal with our leftovers. Everything was piping hot! Potstickers were very light and not greasy. Service was friendly and timely. My only complaint was the... More

The service was excellent, and rapid. The portions were large, however, the food simply wasn't good. In fact it left a lingering aftertaste to the roof of my mouth. This is one place I'll never return to.

Serving sizes are generous, but the food quality is poor. We were there with a group and shared the different dishes. None of the dishes were good, and some were close to I edible. Worst Chinese food I have ever had, would never return and can not recommend to anyone.

The women that worked there were great. Very attentive and fast service. Had a hard time understanding what they were saying though. The table we sat at (there were 6 of us) was plenty roomy, but the vent in the ceiling above us was SO filthy ! I don't think cleaning is high on their list of priorities . Eat... More

A nice looking place with efficient staff, but food quality is below average for a Chinese restaurant. At least it is also low priced, which is some consolation.

I'm not even going to discuss the service which was a problem in itself. I'm in my 60s, so I've had my fair share of Chinese food in New York City and Chicago. I tried this suburban restaurant and obviously will never return. It was simply the worst Chinese food I've ever had. The two main dishes that we ordered... More
