“Excellent local find with authentic northern style chinese cuisine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

This is one of the few restaurants in town where you can get authentic northern style chinese food. The green onion pancakes, pot stickers, and yang chow fried rice are awesome. To get the authentic stuff, you need to order from the chinese menu. There's a more american style menu and that food is good as well. It just depends on what you're in the mood for. The portion sizes are pretty large. Great value.

“Excellent choice for familes since the 80s”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2012

I have been eating here since i was in high school and now I take my kids here. The food is consistent and the service is great. I am hoping my kids will be taking their kids here.

It's Chinese comfort food. Their pork fried rice is pork fried rice. Nothing special or crazy - just good old fashioned pork fried rich. Yum

“I eat here at least a few times a month”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2009

This place is great i love there lunch specials but there is a lot of times my g/f and i go here for dinner or even after work i might stop on by. Kung poa extra spicy please or the szechuan green beans are great as well. If you like noodles the Lo mein has great texture and flavor. Great place for diners that like chinese and want to save a dime for lunch. It is a mom and pop joint, but more times than not i would rather eat here than any other chinese place. Par is set.

“Great PQ resturant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 26, 2009

Great lunch special for about $5-$7 served with soup (egg drop or hot n sour), main dish, rice, & egg roll. They have been in PQ for over 20 years and it is good family style food at dinner. Yenchin beef or chicken is a great dish to share or have for a lunch special.
