“Go there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2011

Enjoy a good, authentic chinese meal in clean comfortable surroundings being served by attentive cheerful staff. Beware though, the servings are massive. There was no way we could eat what we were served, at one sitting. We had to take a doggy box of egg fried rice away for later.

“Good choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2008

Went for dinner on 8/30. Affordable prices (around $6.50 on average for an entree), good service. Good Americanized Chinese food. We had Chow Mein, some Guo Ba (leftover rice, deep fried into crispy wonders) Seafood soup (sorry doesn't know the English name), and Veggie Mooshu. Everything was good though my boyfriend said Mooshu should be made differently (there's no egg inside and it's all saucy veggies). I like everything, and the place was very clean too! Finally, the waitress also said that the restaurant has been in business for over 20 years and it's a favourate in the area.
