I thought I saw Ming Tsai when we walked in the place, but it was just the Asian phenotype that made up the wait help and the individual that greeted us with a welcoming smile. The dining room is nice and bright with nary a lacquered folded fan nor golden dragon statue in evidence. The seating... read more

My family and I really like this restaurant. We eat here as often as we can when we are in town. Staff is very friendly, the food is excellent. Nice and clean. I have been visiting this restaurant for over 10 years and I hope it stays for a long time.

This restaurant has been around 15+ years. They do not advertise. The business is strictly via customers. When in the medical center area stop by. They have lunch/early bird/dinner specials. Try the chicken corn soup.

We started our meal with a wonderful jasmine tea and they brought it in a thermos type of container so it stayed nice and hot, and there was a LOT of it. We then ordered the... More

They have a good menu selection, good size portions, good prices, great tasting food and they deliver. What more could you ask for? I will be ordering from them again.

Stopped in on my way out of San Antonio. Food was served surprisingly fast, service was friendly and never had ask for refills. Food was good. Portions were more than adequate and we ended up with leftovers to take home. Always a plus. And with prices on most of the dishes being under 10 dollars, I was more than satisfied... More

I love the food but the service is a little strange. They have the habit of bring my husband's food first and then mine or vice versa. Rarely do the plates come together.
