Nice Place

We visited here on New Years Eve. The food was good. The restaurant was clean. I thought the portions were smaller than other Chinese restaurants, however the prices were lower. I would eat here again. The service was a little slow, but they were busy. The waitress stopped by often to check on... read more

I have been here a few times but will not be coming back anymore. Food has nothing special to it and no flavor. You can get better tasting Chinese and a cheaper price else where.

I have to start this with....I don't give bad reviews often and I don't do so lightly. My wife and I had to try this place twice because I felt it would be unfair to rate it badly on one visit. Visit 1 - We ordered Kung Pao chicken to share and and egg roll. Egg roll was average (a... More

We went the night that they were giving the veterans a free meal. IT was a lot better than expected for being a buffet. The steaks were all grilled to your specifications and were very good. Salads deserts all were good. It was a cold windy night and we went out a half hour early and they were already seating... More

We went there for lunch and had the buffet. The chicken fried rice was bland. The sweet and sour chicken was good but came with no sauce and the sauce on the table was watery. The crab Rangoon was good. The soy sauce was disgusting. Ours tasted like vinegar. The sugar cookies were okay. Not going back.

We recently were in the mood to try a different Chinese restaurant than we normally frequent. I checked TripAdvisor and the local paper and both agreed that the short trip to Waukesha might be worth it. I have to agree. This is definitely one of the best Chinese restaurants in the Greater Milwaukee area. We were warmly greeted with a... More

Found in an unassuming strip mall location, this Chinese restaurant produces big time food. At a recent visit we ordered the "Dinner for Four" which included soup, appetizers, and four entrees with a big platter of fried rice for $53. The food was excellent from egg drop soup to wontons, ragoons, huge egg rolls to the various entrees which included... More

Everywhere I live I'm in search if good Chinese and I move a lot! This place is the best I've ever found. We order or dine in at least twice a month. We've even brought out of state guests here and they are all jealous we have this place so close. The food is beyond amazing, service is always friendly.... More
