“Good food and service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

I'd say they were average for Chinese food. Veggies were fresh and food came quickly. Service was good. Everyone enjoyed what they ordered. My friend Asked for her dish to be spicy and almost spontaneously combusted when she tasted it. They were very good about replacing it for atoned down version. She said the replacement was very good.

“Authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 16, 2013

The first thing the tell you is "this is not American Chinese". lol It was really good! Friendly staff. Good price. Lunch specials! And they give you Chinese fries. My advice... if you don't like extremely spicy... DO NOT eat the honey mustard! lolol

“Great Food & Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Combination seafood with crispy rice was excellent. The Egg Foo Young has authentic brown gravy full of flavor. Best Chinese I have had in over 15 years.

“Not bad but not great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

We went with the group we were with. The wait staff were very nice. The place is decorated nicely. I went with something safe...like sweet and sour pork. It was ok. The egg rolls were good as was the appetizers. I let my husband eat the soup. He ordered Mongolian Beef and it was not spicy and he did not like the bamboo shoots. All in all, it was just ok.

“Very accommodating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We were starving and did not know what restaurant to try since some are overpriced with nothing on the menu we would want. this place was friendly, quick and willing to make any adjustments to their menu to accommodate vegetarian vegan folks. The inside was not the most glamorous but the food was good and clean. :) PS It is down on a side street off the main bustle.
