Good food

The food over all was good. Many selections to choose from. Over priced on the drinks that have no refills.

This is a place with terrible service and totally under staffed. Not to mention that the poor souls who work here are completely dense in how to treat customers. Can not comment on the food, since we never got any. After waiting 20 minutes for anyone to notice if we were there, we got up and left. No one noticed.

How on EARTH does this place have such great reviews?! I don't understand. We placed an order for pick up and were speaking normally. We weren't speaking quickly, we don't have accents or anything like that. The woman taking our order couldn't understand anything being said. Finally, someone else took the phone and took our order without any problems. I... More

Go here probably once a month. Tried out the Shrimp Marmora tonight. 2 thumbs up. Awesome. As always, General Tsos chicken is the best. This place is quality and is always consistent. You can't ask anything more from a restaurant. I do not know Chef Allen but he has a good reputation around town. I heard he just opened a... More

This restaurant was rated tops in Marmora. While it wasn't bad, it was not a five-star. We ordered fried dumplings and an entrée, The dumplings were chewy and tasted undercooked (sort of like raw dough). The entrée was good. The service was good. The atmosphere is marginal - very crowded, very confined.
