Some of the best chinese food in the area

We always enjoy going to this chinese restaurant. The service is excellent and the food is the best chinese anywhere for dinner. They even offer a buffet lunch on select days worth trying to understand how good the chef is.

We formerly frequented this restaurant but stopped dining here because the servers were very distant. They took the orders but did not attempt to make its diners welcomed. When we recently visited it due to our destination restaurant being closed on a Monday, we found the food to be excellent and the service had improved some --- but still has... More

Best Chinese food on the mainline. Service is always pretty good. No complaints here. Takeout is always fast and fresh. Sushi is great too. Great BYO.

Service was slow and food mediocre. Peking duck was huge but somewhat dried out. Long wait for service and check.

The menu is a bit different from the standard Chinese restaurant menu, with Japanese selections as well. Well prepared, and seasoned properly, the food is served on cloth covered tables, with paper napkins printed with the restaurant name. My complaints: if you get brown rice instead of white rice there is a hidden 0.50 up charge; the food is really... More

Virtually everything in this restaurant is good. The Peking duck is always a favorite and even their simple, common dishes such as wonton soup is excellent due to it's "woody" flavor. This last visit we tried the shrimp toast, orange beef, spicy beef & beans, and the highlight of the night, the fried softshell crabs. The orange & sesame dishes... More

Attractive restaurant in a strip mall. Good service. Let me get to the point. Haven't had such good Mandarin Chinese food since eating in Chinatown in NYC. Ribs, sizzling trio of shrimp, chicken, etc, tofu with fish soup, egg roll and more. We enjoyed the meal and it was reasonably priced. Will try their buffet next.

Upscale Chinese food. Had a great meal. Only real issue was service was slow. Took an effort to get our waitress' attention. Off-street parking.

When first coming to this restaurant I would only order their Chinese food, and it was good enough for me to come back. When I started eating sushi, I started here. I think it has ruined me for other restaurants! The quality of their food is excellent and I am never disappointed. We have even asked for recommendations when ordering... More
