The Best Asian Cuisine in the Houghton area

Love it! The food is FRESH, not frozen or prepackage! I have sample many dishes there and they are all great! If you go early, before the evening crowd, you can get in....but if you wait until dinner time, best to call ahead and reserve a table if there is going to be more than 2 of you... read more

When the first open they were outstanding. Lately they have been slipping in the quality of food, it seems that Sunday is there worst day.

Tried to get a single carryout order relatively early on a Saturday. Waited so long I actually asked them to reverse my payment. Instead I got more assurances that they work "working on it right now". Meaning what, exactly? 10 minutes later, finally got it. (Much larger order placed at same time completes 20 minutes faster) 50 minutes for 1... More

Great, tasty and fresh! Relaxing a atmosphere for a bite with family or friends. Service was fantastic and fast. I had the Pad Thai and I normally don't finish my plate.... Well there wasn't anything left after I was done here. It was delicious. For desert we ordered a fudge cake to share was we were reasonably full and that... More

I went to this restaurant for lunch with my family and was very happy with our whole experience here! Wait staff was very friendly and definitely went the extra mile. Water glasses were kept full, and they even brought snacks to keep my baby entertained. The lunch menu has a lot of good options, and each meal comes with soup,... More

I really enjoyed the translated Chinese menu, as well as their Traditional Asian Potstickers. Excellent food. I haven't had Chinese food this good in a long, long time; since I was a kid and went to China Town in NY. I LOVE this restaurant!!

Good family restaurant. Small but decent selection of vegetarian dishes. Good atmosphere, nice booths. Good selection of wine and beer. Mixed drinks are not very good!

A very pleasant surprise in such an out if the way area. Very clean restaurant with very contemporary decor. We were in Houghton visiting MI TECH and after a long drive and tour of the campus had a hankering for Chinese cuisine. Being a Friday night the restaurant was busy and rather than waiting 30 minutes we opted to eat... More

I am not sure why, but the lunch menu has much more for the money. The food is usually good but for dinner, you have to order things separate like your soup, entree, and other stuff that comes with lunch.

Maybe I expected more because of the glowing reviews...but it was well-prepared food, but nothing exciting. We were visiting for winter carnival at michigan tech and live in Southern California, so we have a lot to choose from. In Houghton, choices are limited. I found the way the served tea odd -- large individual teapots with what tasted like American... More
