“Can't recommend”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

Hot and Sour soup was neither hot nor sour and was filled with none of the traditional ingredients but did have what looked like leftover green beans in it. The tea was lukewarm. Spring roll just had a ton of cabbage and came with a duck sauce that looked like it had water and maybe apple sauce added (something with that texture) - thin and tasteless. The Kung Pao Chicken was generous but, again, tasteless. Worse yet, I had an upset stomach for hours afterwards. Would not recommend.

“Best Chinese in the Valley”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

If you've had your fill of Cantonese takeaway sweet and sour ribs and such, go for their special menu. It's mainland Chinese food that has not been dumbed down (too much!) for western tastebuds. The duck, tofu, soft shelled crabs, and fresh greens are all favorites. Unassuming little spot in a strip mall, but very delicious.

“Best Dim Sum in Western MA!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2011

This is a great little family place. The food is all home cooked style and really, really excellent. They have traditional dishes, but the house specialties are awesome... try the Dragon Skin... it's a local legend. Dim Sum on the weekends is awesome! Most of the dishes are home made (as opposed to reheated packaged things that you find in a lot of Dim Sum places). Prices are a steal.
