“Better than average take out place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We searched far and wide for a Chinese restaurant that delivers to Manchester or is within take-out distance but isn't too dirty, expensive, or cash-only. Even though this is across town for us, we still prefer it to all the other Chinese take-out places nearby. The restaurant itself is clean and bright - nothing to hide here. The staff is friendly. The service is quick - usually our order is ready in 10 minutes.

The food itself is a little bit better than your average Chinese food. It's not super greasy or super salty. I have not found meat in my vegetarian dishes (the reason I stopped going to Five Star). It's just decent food at cheap prices. Usually you get what you pay for. Here, you get a little bit more than that.
