“Okay American Chinese food. Okay price and value.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2009

I had heard and read rave reviews of this place for a long time and finally went with my daughter and son-in-law. It was okay. The service was very good and I think they prepared the food fairly well.... however, I have had better. So if you are from New York and are expecting the same food ---- you will be disappointed! Now, there aren't many Asian restaurants in Leesburg area and so I guess this one is the "Best" they have. So if you are craving Chinese food in Leesburg I recommend it. It doesn't win any awards in my book but it's the best I've had in Leesburg/Purcellville area.

“Actually Homemade”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2009

One of the rare Chinese restaurants that actually don't use bottled, crappy, overly sweet sauces on their food. Some fried items are a little greasy, spare ribs are very good and dishes have fresh veggies in them. Even the sweet and sour and Duck sauces are made fresh. A very nice change from all the horrible buffet Chinese restaurants. Reasonable prices for entrees, the lunch specials are a really good deal.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2008

Wonderful Chinese food in old town Leesburg, and NOT to be confused with the horrible fast food chain of the same name. Insist on traditional Chinese dishes and tell the chef/owner what you like; and you can skip the typical Chinese-American menu entirely. Very small place, prepare to be crowded. Parking can be a challenge.
