We tried the take out a second time because we thought it was a quirk that the food was that bad the first time we got it. It was not a quirk. The food is terrible. There are 4 other asian restaurants in the area.

Only place in Palmyra (until recently) to get chinese. Nothing stands but but just as with "american" mexican, the food was good but nothing to rave about. quick service too. I prefer to order during lunch hours since I can get the exact same food for $3-$4 less. portions are slightly smaller but not by much.

Unfortunately, it's the only Chinese Take Out (that I know of) in the Palmyra area at this time. Food is average. Sometimes, though it's better than other times.

The service is absolutely atrocious! I phoned for over ten minutes with no answer and the workers spoke no English and I had to restate my order for over five minutes. Too bad that this is the only chinese take out in the area. Very unfortunately. I do not recommend.

Ordered chicken chow mein for $7. Drove to meet a friend in Charlottesville and opened the box only to find what looked like soup with some bits of onions and chicken. Called to say that what I had looked like soup -- no noodles or anything and the woman answering the phone snapped that it was chicken chow mein and... More

Ditto to the previous reviewer. if you take all the Chinese restaurants in the whole USA this one would come one average, maybe a bit bellow average. But it's not terrible enough to stay away from it. They have all the classics and it's usually pretty fast. If you live in Lake Monticello and you are craving Chinese, sure. Go... More

It is the only Chinese Restaurant in the area, so I go more often than I would otherwise. Not bad, not good, just close by.
