Good Food

Our waitress was excellent. The appetizers arrived very quickly. For some reason our entrees arrived later than anyone else's around us, even though we ordered first and they also had appetizers. Even so, I would still say the service was very good. The egg rolls were good and the crab ragoons... read more

While in Rochester for a visit to mayo clinic we ordered to go some food from this restaurant. It was the worst meal ever. The fried rice was mushy and had no flavor. The crab ragoon had no crab in it. My chicken stir fry smelled funny so we didnt eat it. We will never go back.

Of course it's not 'authentic' we're in the middle of America people!! Besides that, I like this place it's typical AMERICAN Chinese food. I've lived in China; you're not going to eat the same food that they make in China because...we're in a different country. Service is prompt and polite, great conversation. Food portions are huge! Who could ask for... More

The food and service here is great, lots of menu options at a fair price. Great for lunch or dinner or take out. This is my favorite place to dine.

We reviewed this place in December of 2011 and it was GREAT! We were back in Rochester recently and decided we would like Chinese. The food was not good, I had Pepper Steak and it was poor. The meat was a tenderized cheap cut of beef you could barley cut. My wife had Hunan chicken that was not good, the... More

Having lived in Chicago for nearly 40 years..a weekly trip to Chinatown was on our agenda. This place would rank fairly high. We avoid meat -heavy meals and order vegetables or tofu. My good Asian friends always say... use meat is a condiment. Of note were the Chinese broccoli and spicy green beans. Killer good. Not as fond of the... More

This used to be the only place I'd head to for Chinese food in Rochester -- and it's probably still the best in the area, but "Best of Rochester" isn't saying much...

This was a disappointment. I saw that they were the highest rated Chinese restaurant in town so we ordered some takeout here. I had Happy Family (shrimp, scallops, chicken and pork) and my friend ordered the plum pork. Both of us felt that the dishes were very bland. They need to do something to get some flavor into these dishes.

Chinese restsurants are usually a good bet for vegetarians like us. Where else can you get a healthy serving of vegetables? We started out with a very good hot snd sour soup, here called spicy and sour soup. This is the first time we saw it called thus - a more appropriate name, I think. We had mixed vegetables with...
