The old gray mare, she ain't what she used to be....

We used to make a special trip to the east side restaurant but the recent trip to this north side version left me unimpressed. The place was empty and the food was mediocre. The sizzling rice soup was good but the appetizer tray I ordered for my dinner was uninspiring. Very disappointing. When I... read more

If I bought frozen Chinese and reheated it, it still would have been better than this disaster and waste of money. Start with soup - egg drop and hot and sour - metallic and cool temp; pot stickers - burned on one side, cool in middle; crabmeat Rangoon - where's the crabmeat?! Kung pao chicken - where's the chicken???? Waitress... More

I'm vising from out of town and I've eaten here twice in about a week. Trip #1 (Dinner w/ coworker): Ordered sesame chicken, crab rangoon, and hot & sour soup. Coworker ordered cashew chicken and shared the crab rangoon w/ me. I liked my food and coworker liked his food. Trip #2 (Dinner by myself): Ordered sesame chicken, and egg... More

This Chinese restaurant is kind of dingy looking and the workers are a little bored with serving us, but that should not prevent you from going. There are many dishes I have never seen before but the quality is top-notch. Great food and no waiting for plenty of food at an excellent value.
