I was caught a bit flat-footed by a family member's milestone birthday. With little time to organize, family favorite Toi Shan quickly sprang to mind. Toi Shan's staff were very good, and so was the food. Our cake (they have no cake on the menu) was placed in their cooler as soon as we arrived. (That was fortunate, as I... More

I am not always a fan of buffets, but I was very pleasantly surprised with Toi Shan. My husband and I had been invited here by friends that frequently eat there. This was a luncheon buffet on a Monday. The dining room is not overly large but was always at least half full for the hour or so we were... More

This place is small, unsophisticated and relatively "cheap and cheerful". However, they do serve a great buffet lunch, that is tasty and inexpensive. First time visit and I was very impressed. Recommend.

If you're planning on eating in call ahead or go early or you'll likely have to wait. As for take out, have never waited more than 10 mins. My fav is... More

Stopped in one day to pick up something for dinner for three of us. My kids are vegetarian and I ordered vegetarian crepe/pancakes. They were excellent.

For years this used to be the go-to place for terrific Chinese food. My husband and I just went after not being there for literally years, and will definitely not go back! It was terrible! The ginger beef in particular was grisly with all of the watery sauce at the bottom of the bowl. Absolutely do NOT recommend, and so... More
