“Food was excellent. Service a little sketchy.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2013

My daughter and I had the best brown sauce we had ever eaten in the broccoli with garlic sauce. We had another vegetarian dish that was good, but it was nondescript compared to the other dish. I would love to revisit this restaurant as they offered many nice sounding vegetarian dishes.

The service was nothing to rave about. The young waitresses were more concerned with each other than they were with facilitating our meal. Additionally, the food was very slow. It could be because we asked for no MSG in our food. We were actually shocked that they would have been using MSG to begin with.

If you enjoy vegetarian food, I would highly recommend the vegetarian spring rolls. They were the best I have ever tasted.

“Best Chinese in Columbia, MO”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2013

Very nice interior. As soon as you walk in, you can immediately tell this is going to be a nice atmosphere, nice restaurant. The food is amazing! The best way I can describe how awesome the food is that it tastes like it was made fresh just for you. It doesn't taste like they scooped it out of a pot-it all tastes freshly made freshly cut vegetables-so delicious! I am not a big fan of Chinese food, but this place was fantastic! Chinese food at its finest! Definitely a must go!

“Yang Zhou”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Finally, Columbia can enjoy some dishes from Yang Zhou not the least of which is the Yang Zhou (Yang Chow) fried rice. Not greasy and like most YZ dishes the original color of the ingredients is preserved. It is one of the major cuisines in China. They also have dim sum daily which Columbia has been lacking forever. The only place I know of that serves liver and fish heads which if you haven't tried, don't criticize. I haven't tried the Bejing duck yet but if it is good, this place bats 1000!

“First good Chinese restaurant in Columbia, Mo.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 1, 2013

We have eaten at their family restaurant(China Palace) in Fulton, Mo. for years and could never find a restaurant to compare in Columbia, Mo. (even though Columbia is much larger) This is by far the best Chinese restaurant in Columbia at the moment. So far we have only had 2 entrees and the hot and sour and chicken corn soup and an egg roll and crab rangoon. EVERYTHING was excellent. They have some very unusual Chinese dishes that would be interesting to try.
