“Very Ordinary”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2013 via mobile

From the framed reviews and celeb photos on the walls you might expect more. If so, you'll be disappointed. Under-seasoned and bland food, rushed service, and a dated environment. Would not return.

“Not sure what the hype is all about...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

...especially when looking at all the reprints of newspaper reviews, and other cudo's they've received over the years, but the did stop at 2009. So, one wonders what happened. We've traveled the orient, so we have some idea what the stuff is supposed to taste like, and this place simply falls short. Not too flavorful, so I'd guess they haven't figured out how to up the flavor sans MSG. Try Lok Yuan's here in Eugene, OR and see how tasty Chinese food can be without MSG.

“Convienient Chinese”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

We liked the food and the portion sizes but ordered too much
The restaurant was convieniently located just across the road from our hotel. The only bad thing to say was the decor was alittle uninspiring.

It was located within 1 block of our hotel so was very convenient. Food was served attractively and tasted great. Large menu. Comfortable seating.

“Hot and fresh”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

The food here is always good and hot. They rush you out, but that's life. Have eaten here for years and will continue to go back -and get delivery.
