Their food is the bomb.

This was the very first place I ate at when I first visited Emporia. It is our favorite place for Chinese. People are always friendly. Food is always good. Restaurant could use some updating but the cooks are very good. We never leave disappointed or hungry.

Nice place too go with family or spouse, they're not too busy good food. They're busiest during lunch time and almost always busy Friday and Saturday nights. I like to order general T'os chicken, combination fried rice and either empress shrimp. They do have daily specials you can order from.

This was a pretty typical Asian buffet. May a slightly better selection than some, but nothing really extraordinary. One thing to note is the meal prices. The sign at the door said 4.99 lunch and 5.99 dinner, I was there at 4 pm and ended up getting charged 12.99.

Quiet and quick service. Your usual Chinese menu, but good portions and prompt service. Clean place. Not too busy because we went just past the usual lunch hour.

...and with 4-5 options in such a small town, that's saying something. My husband and I a regulars. Our favorites: General Tso's chicken, the fried rice (still haven't found a place that beats it - even outside Emporia), the "diet delight" (not to be confused with double delight), and the crab rangoon. In fact, we like the food here so... More

We had the family meal which included appetizers and soup as well as the entree. Staff were very friendly and received prompt service. Food was nice and fresh and hot, and had a great taste!

Love Shanghai. Probably not the best Chinesse in the world, but by Emporia standards, is great. Delivery is very quick too.

This restaurant serves a nice variety of Chinese food that is just delicious. The service is friendly, and the atmophere is pleasant. I am a vegetarian, and this is one of only a couple of restaurants in town where I dine. The Tofu Family Style is a nice assortment of vegetables in a tasty sauce with slices of sauteed tofu...
