At noon on a nice June day the parking lot was a desert and there were three tables of the only people in MN whiter than me. Uh-oh... The curt hostess/server/badazz owner seated us and demanded our beverage preferences. I sat up straight and shouted the first thing that came to mind. This chick had nothing on the scariest person...

I was eager to have good Chinese food that I have experienced in the past. This time I was sorely disappointed with the taste and quality. I will not return due to this experience .

Both dishes were excellent...the "fragrant vegetables" were flavorful (spicy) and the "Sautéed Beef and Potato" was crispy and delicious. Service was absolutely delightful. The immaculately clean restaurant is "well worn" but very comfortable and a place we will be returning soon.

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 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 in a typical late century... More
