“Good pre-fix dinners and drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

Order the 13 dollar drink for two, the tiki punch-it is strong and delicious and more potent than you'd expect. I didn't like the hot and sour soup but the shrimp and chicken dishes were great! Good deal! As were the egg rolls and wontons!

“Lunch Special #6”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 3, 2013

My wife and I both had lunch special #6, which is sweet & sour soup first, followed by broccoli beef and chicken chow mein, with rice and an egg roll. Good price, good value, and delicious. The atmosphere is "small-rural-town-main-street-Chinese-restaurant" if you know what I mean.

“Pass On This Place!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

Not so good experience here. The Orange Chicken we ordered was overcooked and the vegetable chow mein was not that good either. We actually left and went to dinner at Sushi In The Raw afterwards. My son and his wife did not care for Fred's either.

“Good and Reliable for Chinese Food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013 via mobile

Came here for my birthday dinner after the best restaurant in town failed to have lamb chops on the menu. For less than one-half the price, got my favorite, General's Chicken. Pretty much everything is good here. We come here often for lunch. Probably best value in Chinese in Nevada City or Grass Valley.
