MSG Anyone?

My colleagues and I were bloated within 10 minutes of eating - apparently from the MSG. The food was fine, but the swollen aftermath made us all pay!

All of the food is great that I've had. My favorite orange chicken Special item: the little fried noodles they bring out before your meal and the orange jam - try together. Yummy.

Been going here for 16 year now. Food is always good. Core staff is always the same, but some of the others come and go. Love the General Tso chicken.

The worst, most expensive, Chinese food I've ever had. We're still looking for a decent Chinese restaurant in this area. Any ideas?

My husband and I spent all day traveling and stopped here for dinner. The staff was welcoming, we got a nice little table by the windows and we had hot tea served to us without hesitation. We got dumplings for appetizers and the hunan sauce was some of the best I've ever had (after trips to Japan and Thailand I... More

We stopped by before going to a movie. We both had chicken dishes and both thought our tastebuds were dead. The food was not disgusting, but it was truly tasteless. I would rather just have eaten cardboard. It was cheap, but this is no excuse for this type of food. It wasn't just bland, it really had flavor at all.... More

I have seen food dropped on the floor and served. I see from the other reviews that it has not gotten any better. If you saw the food before it was cooked you wouldn't eat it. It is not any better after it is cooked. Very low hygiene practices.

CK was my favorite restaurant for years. It's been sliding down for the last few years, but the last straw was our latest carryout order. I don't know what mystery meat passed for 'chicken breast' back in that kitchen, but it was disgusting. Chewy, gristly, completely inedible. We spent over $50 on a date-night-at-home treat and it was a huge... More
