This is so far my favorite Chinese restaurant in the area. It’s a small, cozy place where you order off the menu rather than an all-you-can-eat buffet. The price can be a little higher than in a buffet, but the quality and peaceful atmosphere make it worth it. Lunch specials are reasonably priced. It is dark and usually quiet, even when it is full. They tend to put the larger, noisier groups in a separate room off the main dining room. I’ve tried quite a number of dishes on the menu, and everything has been very good. Ingredients are fresh, and you can tell that the food is cooked fresh when you order it. Fried items like the egg rolls and fried wontons are crisp, never soggy, and we often have to wait for them to cool down before we can eat them. You can tell that they have not been pre-cooked and kept under a heat lamp. Vegetables in the stir-fry dishes are crisp, never limp or overcooked. The dishes are seasoned well and flavorful, and the items designated as spicy actually do have some heat to them. Dishes like General Tsao’s chicken are not overly breaded and not excessively sweet. It has a little bit of heat to it. This aspect of the dish seems to have gotten lost in many restaurants. Their shrimp toast is excellent. It is the only shrimp toast I’ve ever had where you can really get the taste and texture of the shrimp. Service is always excellent. The staff is attentive and polite. Sometimes we have been served a slice of fruit after our meal, as is traditional, but this has been inconsistent.
