This place was not good. The servers were very nice but that was the only redeeming quality this restaurant had. First off, it stunk inside. Not like most Chinese restaurants smell but a disgusting smell. My husband's sweet and sour chicken wasn't bad but I got the moo goo gai pan and it was seriously the worst thing I've ever... More

For Chinese this is the best restaurant so far in Utah! I always get either orange chicken or General TSO's and mixed other things.... The prices are really awesome, especially during lunch time which I believe is 11- 12 or 1... you get a lot for the price! nice people too! If you want good Chinese food then go here!

The place looks pretty shabby inside and out. I read the reviews and decided to try it. I am hooked. Try the pot stickers and go to the unusual chef menu It's not your usual American Chinese. These is the real stuf and it's good !

I heard so much about this little place, so I thought I would give it a try. Food was very average, not what I had expected it to be, but I will give it a second try, maybe it was just anoff day

The food is awesome, huge portions and inexpensive prices, don’t go expecting a great local, the place can barely seat 25 people, during lunch expect a decent time to be seated, but it’s worth it.

It's the athentic Chinese food that excels, not so much the Chinese American. Try Salt Baked Squid, Shrimp Stuffed Eggpant, Chow Fun, Pork and Eggplant Hotpot, the good stuff is on the last page of the menu!

I was expecting a dive...and I definitely found that. The atmosphere/service may be a little too "authentic" for many people. Food was ok but due to how it was served, with all the bones, heads, etc. Flavor was pretty good but just ackward for an american in most ways... Reminds me of eating in a real chinese place.

The place is a little scarey to look at (DON'T use the bathroom!), but damn the food is good. Most chinese in Utah is horrible, some is OK... but this place blows them all away! This is real chinese, not the fake stuff like pf changs or the bland deep fried crap at Ho Ho...
