“Great Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

Really good food and extremely friendly staff. Order up front and food is brought out to your table.

Atmosphere is very relaxing and comfortable.

“clean, friendly and great food priced right”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

Charming place to enjoy great food! Eat in or take out, either way works! My husband and I have tried several of the dishes over the past 3 weeks. There is not one that disappointed us. The food is brought out to your table as each dish is done, nothing is sitting under a heat lamp here, it's FRESH AND DELICIOUS.

“Fair priced, above average Chinese food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013 via mobile

The ordering process is a bit complex. Once you get passed the ordering frustration this is a solid choice for Chinese food in Lincoln. The staff seemed a bit flustered but were very kind and delivered the food exactly as ordered even though we customized our entrees quite a bit. The interior is plain and simple but very nice. I ordered the Blazing sauce with my shrimp and broccoli and it wasn't spicy enough. I'd kick it up another notch next time. For a brand new restaurant this place was good. I have a feeling it will get better with time.

“Reasonably priced casual leaning towards formal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Great place to eat without busting the bank! You order from the board at the counter, then find your table. However the dining area is NOT A FAST FOOD DINER, it's open and inviting with tables and booths. They bring your order to the table. The food was really great and the overall atmosphere far above what I expected!

“Tasty and Fast”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013 via mobile

Very good food delivered fast! Two entrees with 2 crab rangoons per person for $20. Excellent, beautiful, spacious restaurant. Only shortcoming was the portion for the classic dinner was small. Very friendly staff. Order entry was thoroughly explained. Offerings and ordering instructions can be previewed online
