We have been going to this restaurant for years, sometimes dining in and sometimes taking out for lunch. The food is consistently good. We like their ginger chicken, chicken w/garlic sauce, beef w/broccoli, crispy duck w/vegetables, and moo shu offerings. Their scallion pancakes appetizer is great. The soups are always OK. The staff is efficient, foods served in a timely... More

We had not been here for a while (we were out of town) and were overwhelmed by how delicious the food is, upon returning. Flavorful, fresh tasting food and friendly service! Traditional dining room plus take-out service. Not a buffet, so food is cooked the way you want it, if you have preferences. The night I was there, I ordered... More

Went there tonight for the first time in many years. The quality of the food has gone way down.We felt like we were eating frozen food reheated.That will be our last visit.

We have eaten at this restaurant for many years and also often get take out. The food here is very good and the staff has always been nice. We have tried other Chinese restaurants in the area, but this is our favorite. It is also our Christmas Eve dinner choice! The food is always hot and delicious. Service is quick... More

I've lived here and I trust it. Extensive menu and friendly staff. Clean and fast service. Plenty of booth service and fancy designed vegetables.

Average atmosphere, food was edible but won't be going back. Prices were decent, but I would be sour if they were any more expensive given the quality of the food. Our waiter was excellent, service was top notch. Won't be back.

What a pleasent surprise, the food was fantastic, the service was excellent, and the price is right. :) We went as a large group 11 people at lunch time (reserved) and the whole event was... uneventful. The host was pleasent and greeted us warmly. Our table ready and waiting. The waiter was unobtrusive but always there for us. I never... More
