“Excellent value from a little dive.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

This place has excellent Chinese food but you probably don't want to see into the kitchen. Last time I was there it was very rundown. Huge amount of food for the price (2 can split 1 combo) but take it to go.

“So-so”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2012

OK if you are hungry, but often get the order wrong, leave items out. Rice is always overcooked. Better options are out there.

“Expected More”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2012

The Food is very poor executed for the price you pay. Chicken fried Rice had almost no Chicken in it, if a small piece of chicken was found it was very dry and overcooked. No Veg in the rice as you will find in most other chinese places and not seasoned at all. Same for the Chow Mein hardly any chicken in it and about 70% Bok Choy and Celery was way too much for a "Chicken Dish" Not worth the money for a take out, I'll get better in a proper restaurant for the same price.

“My favorite chinese in the city”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2011

This restaurant provides a great take out service, generally items ordered can be picked up in the time it takes you to simply drive there. Often they are open later than most restaurants in the area. The food is generally a drier form of chinese food and is not overly greasy or heavy. The portion sizes are large and on typical bases a couple can share a single combo together. The staff are friendly and cater to any changes in the order. The atmosphere inside the restaurant is dingy and dark yet it is not really meant to be a sit in place to eat. The overall value for what you get is extremely high and they have the best General Tso's chicken in the whole city!

“Yummy!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2011

Great food, prices are decent.

Tend to wait about 30-40 for food, but it is always worth the wait.

I would not recommend eating inside the restaurant as the seating area is very tiny and much more suited for just waiting to pick up food.

Always get my chinese food from here.
