Stinks, reeks, actually, of stale gone bad cooking out. Vegetables are soggy, meat tough, absolutely no friendly service. Floor, walls filthy, windows blurred from not bing cleaned. Tried it once, never again. All food tastes the same, in a yucky brown sauce. Worst take out ever. KEEP OUT Should be called No. 2, if you get my drift.

When we don't want to cook, we usually order from them. We never eat in, we always take out. Food is usually done in 10 minutes or less. We usually call then jump in the car and our order is usually ready to pick up by the time we get there. We usually order the same thing, either we order... More

My son would eat Chinese food for every meal so on our way to Yorktown we stopped at No. 1. The food came out very hot which we greatly appreciated. The lunch special included soup, the main course and pork fried rice for $5. The flavor and taste of the food was nothing special. The Hunan Chicken sauce was thick... More

To be fair, I definitely prefer the "Americanized" style of Chinese over genuine Chinese and I don't like sushi. However, my husband loves sushi and fancier Chinese, but for fast food Chinese, this is the only place to go! We always get their General Tso's (pronounced Cho's) combo. It comes with pork fried rice and an egg roll. The pork... More

This is your everyday oriental take out. Very small dining area if you decide to eat in. You get plenty for your money, especially if you order a combo. I always order a combo and it is enough to feed at least two people.

Okay, it's a hole in the wall (literally) fast-food Chinese restaurant but I would be remiss if I didn't rave about their chicken terriyaki - it's wonderful but be sure to eat while it's freshly cooked (I don't care for it leftover). They also have a special that's listed/pictured on their wall but hard to find on their menu for... More

Not number one anymore. we ordered egg foo young and there was a total of three pieces of meat in the dish. We decided maybe they had a bad day and tried them again. We ordered the General Tso's meat was old and mangly. The kung pao chicken consisted of ALOT of vegtables and non existent chicken. We called them... More

Not the best Chinese seafood I've ever eaten, but it was good. Some dishes have way too much celery and I usually ask them to cut back on it because in some dishes it overpowers the dish. The portions are huge and one order is usually enough to feed two people. The hot and sour soup is delicious and fairly... More
