A great place for a fairly quick lunch...not the place to sit back and spend the evening, but the food is fine.

This is also very good restaurant which serves a large number of Chinese cuisine and other southern delicacies. It provides many quiet gatherings and bring along guess and friends, and families alike. Very good restaurants to eat. There are buffets available which is very good.

The War Wonton is usually pretty good. Indeed it does need a total renovation. It's a staple in the community. Not clear how sanitary it is but we still eat there.
