It's been there since before recorded time and I just discovered it.

I have lived within 15 minutes of this place for 30+ years and have never gone in. My loss. Well, to begin with, the neighborhood is kinda sleazy, three or four one star hotels all around it. That's enough to make you want to keep looking over your shoulder. But, once inside you find yourself... read more

Visited this one again last week; the food is still just as good as ever, and the service is also still as good as ever. This is an establishment that treats you like they are glad to see you and they go out of their way to meet your high standards of quality and service.

Thank goodness we have eaten at real Chinese restauants accompanied by asian friends who pick the places we eat. the food as this place did not approach in taste or appearance similarly named items I have been served in other restaurants in other cities in other parts of the country. Avoid at all costs.

The house special fried rice is so delicious. The combination of chicken, shrimp and beef tossed in fluffy rice is delectable. When I want non battered meat with rice, this dish suits that craving. I Always take out but The service is fast and friendly.

The service was terrible, waited at least 20 minutes just to place our order. When we did get our food it looked and smelled nasty. We have ordered chicken chow mien and chicken fried rice at tons of other restaurants and never did we get what we did here. It was so gross that we got up from the table... More

I have always known this restaurant existed but the outside looks like a place you didn't want to go into. After reading other reviews I went. The inside is really nice and decorated well. The food was really good and the service was better. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

I ordered carryout on a blustery night. Not expecting too many people to brave the poor weather, this establishment still had customers eating inside. The menu contained standard Chinese-American fare and the portions were generous. The food itself was fresh, hot, and delicious. I would recommend to anyone craving Asian-American food.

One of my tour mates had told me about the Pumpkin Wontons (a November specialty) for $5.00! Yes, they are amazing! And I need to go back to the gym today now. Basically it is like a Crab Rangoon, but filled with a pumpkin cream cheese! Seriously loved it (chocolate dipping sauce too)! I had a beautiful steamed vegetable combo... More
