There's a nice variety on the main menu. I've hear good things about the soups. I've had the wonton and liked it. For a cup, it's only $1.10 to add, so it's not unreasonably priced. The service is quick. This is not a fancy place, but we go here for the food not the setting. The food is great!

We used to come regularly, but I haven't been in over a year. Met a friend for lunch and had the Kung Pao Chicken. The lunch portion was great and economical.

This restaurant serves very good Chinese food. The Hot and Sour Soup is a big favorite and the Egg Fu Yung is wonderful.

Best Chinese food in Georgetown. We use it strictly for takeout, have never eaten in restaurant itself. Atmosphere is what I call typical for Chinese restaurants in mid size cities - nothing fancy. Food is good, always hot, good flavors. Nothing is extraordinary about the food, but there is also nothing wrong with the meals we've had. I always know... More

We ate twice here within a week. The first time we ordered carryout. I ordered the combination Kung Pao which was supposed to include shrimp, beef and chicken.

Food lacked flavor. Chicken Supreme was served in watery brown gravy. Dish had two Chinese peppers served, however food did not have any spicy characteristic. My wife ordered Sweet and Sour Shrimp. Sauce was watery and was bland. Fried rice seemed pretty plain. Restaurant looked dingy.
