This restaurant has started to slowly decline. The food is still edible, but nothing exciting and sometimes it just seems tired--not as fresh and well presented as it should be. Have only done take out recently and even that was sub par.

My daughter and I ate dinner here and we were both very disappointed. For appetizers we ordered crab Rangoon and I had hot and sour soup. The crab filling was not at all sweet, but rather had an off, briny taste. The soup was overly full of black pepper and seemed very floury. My daughter ordered pepper steak which the... 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

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 asked for some carryout containers to... More

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
