This it the place to go for fine dining Chinese. They occasionally have a buffet, but usually it is menu only. Their crab rangoon are the best in town. Very friendly owners. Highly recommend this place, although it is somewhat higher than other places.

No matter what we order, their food is outstanding. Carryout is ready in less than 10-minutes. The outside doesn't appear fancy, but the inside is a very nice. They offer large private seating in the rear of the building. The crab rangoon is out of this world. It's the real deal w/ real crab meat. Great egg rolls, pot stickers,... More

We have been eating there for over 2 years and have loved it every time. But suddenly there was a shift in wait staff and management. At least one waiter is definitely running a scam and possibly another or someone in the kitchen. Do not eat there unless you enjoy being treated like a thief. Will never go back.

I am a fan of cashew chicken. So when I saw they had cashew chicken with shrimp it was a no brainier. The price was $12.95 and a was expecting an average serving. When the dinner arrived it was much larger than I expected. It had a very good but not overpowering flavor. I had trouble finishing the plate. I... More

You will be impressed as soon as you walk in the door with the elaborate decorations and great aroma. It's very well kept and the details in the wall art are all gold and unlike any other Chinese place I've been before. It didn't stop there because the food was so authentic tasting and out of this world. We ordered... More
