“Best Chinese and Vietnamese food ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

When you pass through Ellensburg and Central Washington Univ, you don't really expect to find a great Chinese restaurant. But, this is one of the best. The buffet is full, food is lightly cooked and tasty, and the owners are very friendly. This is one place worth the extra 5 minute drive from the freeway to find.

“OK place for American style Chinese food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

This place has the usual fare. There are not many choices for vegetarians. The Sunday buffet is a good deal.

“YUCK !”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2010

It was a busy little place, but the food was terrible. We took a couple of bites and threw it out. I think my husband liked the soup though.
