This is a great place to eat Chinese food in our small town. You always get more than you can eat, so you can take home the extra.

Lunches are spectacular for the price, quality and amount of food you get. They have remodeled after the first of the year (2014) and it is much more attractive.

Have carried out twice and it was very good. Pork fried rice was great. Shrimp with lobster sauce was excellent. Seemed like fresh shrimp. Comparable to the our regular chinese in Madison WI and maybe better in some areas. Nice clean well run place. Wish they delivered before 8pm.

I ate here several times during July. The sushi is great, the Chinese food is great. The decor is nice, quiet. The staff is helpful and polite. I ate here alone and with family and found it excellent both times.

Very nice Chinese restaurant with diverse menu including sushi, which has also been very good and fresh-tasting. Very clean, pleasant atmosphere. Good location just off Grand Avenue. Have been there multiple times, and has always been good.

The food here is always good and the service, friendly and prompt. They have also added sushi to their menu. The lighting is a little dim for my tastes.
