Delicious Chinese Carryout

Everything here is fresh and quality ingredients. They are very nice family who runs the business and strive to please their customers. Their young son, who works the register, is outstanding! Delicious food.

This place has great food at a good price. All the staff are very personable and good at what they do. This is the only Chinese i eat around here and the location is very convenient. It's a nice little place to take the family.

Great food! Everything is fresh and delicious. They have very plentiful portions. Also there is a lunch buffet during the week. We usually take-out. You can eat in at dinner but the dining room is very bare.

We've had delivery/carry-out from here several times and they never fail. I, personally, have never been inside the restaurant so I can not speak of the overall rating of the atmosphere (had to rate in order to post)
