We really liked it!

We'd visited Chehalis many times and decided to give this place a try. It was very good! We had a sliced bbq pork appetizer with some hot mustard and another tasty sauce. We each ordered a chicken entree and they were all good with the General Sao (?) maybe the favorite if it was the spicy one... read more

My wife and I have eaten here frequently; it is our favorite spot when visiting Chehalis. The food is always freshly prepared and delicious. Make it as hot as you'd like, from zero to 5 stars. Wife likes no heat, I like it in the middle. This is a family-run restaurant; the cook is from Vietnam and does a very... More

We tried the Pad Kee Mao and a sizzling dish with chicken, shrimp and scallops. GREAT! The staff was very friendly and attentive!

What a find. Just off the highway and past the Arco station to little family restaurant serving up Asian dishes. Fast, delicious at a fair price. A busy place.......says it all. What a nice change from the usual names along the highways. Did I mention the good value!

Got there at noon and got the last parking spot. Busy place! Lunch specials are a fantastic value. The food quality was a mixed bag. I ordered sweet and sour chicken and the sauce was from a jar. Hot and sour soup was too sweet and not hot. Hubby ordered a spicy coconut milk dish and the sauce was obviously... More

I hadn't eaten here in several years, but it was recommended highly by friends, so we went and tried it again. We went on a Saturday evening, a little after five, and we were the only people there. We were quickly greeted and seated, and placed our orders. The obligatory Hot and Sour soup came out in record time: Both... More

The sit-down part is small, but the take out is fast and good. When we want take-out Chinese food, this is where we call.

Lunch prices are excellent. Enough food for two to share. Wonderful flavors and variety of lunch dishes. Great soup and tea, too.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal here last night. The sauces are very light and flavorful, which is such a nice change to find of the other Chinese restaurants in the area. I especially enjoyed the sweet and sour shrimp because the battery was not as heavy as some places make it. You corks find the shrimp easily! Service was with... More

We found all of the previous reviews to be accurate; “great, fresh healthy food, packed with locals, attentive service, flavorful, not over-spiced, a true “mom and pop” operation and reasonably priced.” If you are expecting to experience ‘real, authentic Chinese food’, not here. The menu is designed for their clientele and it is very western Chinese food. If that is... More
