Authentically decorated interior. Ask for the fried noodles (crispies) to go with the best Hot & Sour soup I've ever had. Fried rice is wonderful (no goofy peas present!). But best surprise are the chunks of white chicken meat in the dishes. No mystery meat here. High quality Chinese food in a little out of the way small town. If... More

This was the 3rd of three restaurants recommended to us to eat at by the innkeeper of the B&B we stayed at. We were seated immediately, only a couple of tables were taken. The wait staff were attentive. I had the chicken chow mein with wonton soup and an egg roll. All were good. I would probably eat here again.

Everyone in Austin and Washington counties knows about this gem in Bellville about 70 miles west of inner Houston. Who'd a thought. Packed most of the time. As good as any in Houston. Avoid puffy fried stuff. Go for the Hunan pork and volcano chicken or any spicy dish. Always great!

I have worked at several towns in the area and drive to Bellville when i want Chinese food. Lunch specials are great price and quantity is immense for lunch. The soup and egg roll are good. Parking is limited, so get there early. Great, friendly service!

We drive about an hour to get here. We have been going here for years, but today was the best ever. I love Hot and Sour soup and this was the best of any restaurant we have ever eaten at. Large chunks of chicken and veggies. THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT, OUR DRINK GLASS NEVER GOT LESS THAN ONE THIRD REMAINING... More

Wish they had enough traffic to have a buffet, but the menu has lots of choices and the food is on par with most Chinese food restaurants.

People I know drive from Houston to eat this food. It was fresh, quick, very tasty and reasonably priced. We were very pleased and will be returning often. The service was also excellent.

We have enjoyed the food and service at this establishment for many years. They make wonderful food, and treat people right. My favorite is the General Tso's Chicken, which is always nice and crunchy on the outside, with a great sauce. We always get the fried WonTon strips for an appetizer, and we have yet to be disappointed in going... More
