After reading Trip Advisor reviews, we gave this a whirl on a Friday night, and I'm so glad that we did! We started with a yummy seafood soup for two, and then reverted to our usual steamed veggies and protein with garlic sauce on the side. Guess it's best to review a place with a dish you eat all... read more

Had Plum Wine, Spring Roll, and Green Prawns. All was excellent. The waiter was very attentive. A nice restaurant. And they brought out orange slices and pineapple chunks after dinner, a nice touch to refresh our pallets.

Staff friendly and professional. the host knows all his customers. A Chinese restaurant like I remember from my childhood. Not many good sit down Chinese restaurants left. You sit and have tea. Or can order anything you want. If I am staying away from carbs I have chicken and broccoli sautéed in garlic and ginger,

Friday night on a holiday weekend, they had a full house, service was good and the food was delicious. I had one of their "healthy dishes" that I was able to pick which vegetable, spinach or broccoli that I wanted, and what kind of sauce I wanted on it. We enjoyed everything that we ordered. It is a definite that... More

When exploring my mom's new neighborhood we happened on this wonderful restaurant. The shopping center is mostly empty but this restaurant is worth stopping in. Large portions. Both times we have been there we went home with enough for a second meal.

I have had the chicken & broccoli, sesame chicken, spare ribs, and they were all very good. I REALLY like their egg rolls. They are the best around. They also do take out for when you... More

Myself and my husband are always on an eating healthy kick as he just had a quad bypass 8 weeks ago. So we always get The Harvest, which is shrimp and chicken steamed with broccoli and brown rice. I just love the freshness of their food! Because it has no sauce you can really taste the freshness. They are always... More
