Great!

I had a great experience with this place. I had a pretty good meal and the service was good as well. This place broke my expectations in a good way and I am happy that I had a great meal here.

One of the best places for Chinese Food. It does have the staple American-Chinese items, but also has various traditional Chinese dishes. True to Buffalo form, their food is much more spicy than the any of the American Chinese food restaurants.

I've been here many times and the food and service are consistently excellent. It's run by a Chinese couple who definitely do things their way. Definitely not your typical Chinese take-out. And that's a very good thing.
