This used to be my go to for chinese food until recently. Last time I went for a sit down dinner, the house fried rice was so greasy, all you could taste was oil. I ordered take out last night chicken fingers and was so disappointed. The chicken fingers tasted like they were made the day before then re fried,... More

The egg rolls were some of the best we have ever had -to include egg rolls in Asia! The service was great and the hostess was very kind!

I went to this restaurant last weekend to celebrate my birthday with my fiancee. I have never sat in the restaurant section before, but I have been to the bar which has always been pleasant. This last trip we had a nice sit down dinner, and a couple drinks in the dining room. It was very good service. Everything came... More

Went here with some friends about 2 weeks ago. We were seated quickly, but that was the last good experience we had. Our waitress was either overwhelmed or ignorant as it took us about 20 minutes to receive our first drinks and she missed one! The service was the issue with our entire visit, from being ignored on several occasions... More

Excellent Chinese restaurant with an extensive menu, excellent service, wonderful atmosphere and exciting and different menu items in addition to the regular, everyday Chinese cuisine. I love their Pineapple Chicken which is delightfully served inside a hollowed out pineapple. Their food and service is fantastic and recommend anyone in the area looking for some great Chinese food to give them... More

Love their egg rolls. Husband had Shanghai panfried noodles -- very tasty with lots of veggies, and bits of beef, chicken and whole shrimp. I ordered General Tso's chicken....but it wasn't. The meal I was served was orange chicken with a couple of chili peppers in it that did nothing to make it General Tsos. It well prepared and the... More

The food and the service was excellent. One of the employees (who I suspect was one of the owners) made an effort to keep my 2 year old happy by bringing him a fortune cookie and a little umbrella.

We are big fans of this place and are usually there once a week. We like to sit at the bar to eat, chat with other patrons and watch a game. Great food and staff is always very friendly.

Meh is what comes to mind when thinking about Chinese food in Sanford. Green Tea is marginally better with a better menu than most. Unfortunately that's not a ringing endorsement. Food is ok but hit or miss. We've ordered the same items multiple times for example orange chicken. Sometimes it's fantastic and sometimes it taste like low end chicken nuggets... More

One of our favorite restaurants! The food is always fresh and hot. Veggies crunchy and meats tender and obviously excellent quality. Try the tea! It's very good too!! And price is very reasonable... As is the quantity of food! No skimping there! Plenty of leftovers to take home.
