Amazing, authentic Chinese food! You have to make the easy trip to visit this place in person. Ask for Kelsey, the manager or one of the owners. If they're not around make sure to ask for the 'special' (authentic) menu. Order any dish on the secret menu! Enjoy! This place stays a favorite even though we moved away from the... More

I ordered takeout and when I started eating my food i noticed a dead Maggot in my food. Then i brought it back and the manager and she wanted to make another meal and I just wanted a refund. She was very rude and did not apologize one time. Stay away from this nasty place!!

Came on a Sunday afternoon and had a positive experience. small place located in a plaza. Our waiter was very attentive and professional. The food was typical Americanized Chinese fare. Nothing special. But it tasted fine with me. I enjoyed my chicken Lo Mein. Kids enjoyed the wings and sweet/sour chicken. While nothing fancy here, it was a good experience.... More

We had been going at lunch but stopped off at dinner tonight. This was a mistake! First, we both got very sour unsweet tea, then were served the wrong beverage, then brought tea that was not much better. Finally the meal came. My Buddha's delight looked funny. The sauce was thin and you could see puddles of grease. We told... More
