Night out

This is a great place to come with friends. Drinks are strong and good! Appetizers are all pretty good and the best dish is the sweet and sour chicken.

Hands down the best Chinese restaurant in the area. Everything on their menu is done to almost perfection I have had half meals on their menu over many years and never been disappointed. A must try if in the area

We love Chinese food first time we went to this restaurant. Wife got sick eating Seafood war bar. She was feeling sick by time we started drinking cappuccino.

Great ambience. Some vegetarian options. I had the Lo Mein which was quite good. Here is the best part: The place turns into a night club late into the evening and the alchohol keeps flowing. Sometimes NBA players stop by - no kidding! Top end cars pull up for the valet - I certainly spotted a Gallardo.

This restaurant has been in Troy for over 30 years. From a Chinese restaurant, it has changed into an Asian one offering dishes from China, Japan, Korea, Thailand, etc. The food is very good. It is the only oriental restaurant that my wife and I would go to. She always loved the Mandarin Duck.

We moved to Troy, MI three months ago and were looking for good Chinese restaurant. My husband's colleague recommended this restaurant so we went and tried it. We feel that the dishes are more suited for American palate, not authentic enough.

The atmosphere is ON POINT and the food is even better. I've NEVER had a bad meal here. Not even a so/so meal. Excellent every time! If you're in the area and in the mood for the best, don't even hesitate!!!

One of the parents from the team organized the team dinner. As always, there were people showing up that did not respond. The staff at the restaurant WENT ABOVE AND BEYOND to accommodate everyone, even after we exceeded the number for our reservation. The Host was so gracious and co-operative, all of this on Saturday night while the place was... More

We went with a large group, and the staff had to work hard to accommodate us because we ended up with a bigger group than anticipated. They did so graciously. The food is delicious! I had the spicy orange chicken--fantastic. Everyone's dishes looked so good, it is hard to choose what to get. Next time we are in Troy, I'll... More

The ginger eggplant appetizer is a must, trust! It's been consistent for over 20 years. The Szechwan squid (calamari) is consistently great as well. Try the Asian Pear Martini too. If you have room left following the appetizer, any entree you order will not disappoint including their fresh Sushi.
