My friend and I try to go out for lunch at least once a month. I am never disappointed with the food. My friend treated me to Shrimp Chow Mein. The portion was very generous and I was able to take it home for several...more meals. My friend ordered the House Special Chow Mein. This is also a very nice variety of different meats and shrimp. Everything was delightfully tastey. Also, because my adult daughters didn't want to be left out I had a "to go" order that was really very large. The girls were planning to have extra food for several days. It started with Meat Postickers, Won Ton Soup (lots of ham and veggies), 2 orders of chicken chow mein, 1 order of Almond Chicken with generous veggies, Chicken with Mushrooms. All to the delight of my daughters have this great food for at least three meals. The fact that I didn't have to cook for several days was a really big treat. What I especially like about this restaurant is that the food is never greasy. It is always done to perfection. The chef and the people who work there are always so friendly and very helpful. My "to go" order was so big, that one of the wait staff helped me carry it to my car.More

I was visiting friends in Auburn and this is their favorite spot. Food was 10 out of 10. Spiced just right. I like hot, but the other 3 in my party don't. The food hit the middle ground perfectly and all 4 of us were...pleased. Portions are huge and we took the rest home for a second dinner. Service was great, facilities neat and clean Prices were reasoble 4 of us got 6 entrees for around $90 but got two full meals. Next time I visit we are going here again. No negatives.More

December 15, 2022 My first review was number twenty six! I now seeing twenty eight reviews! We came again in November 2022! My first two comments, due to Color Tiers of Mister Corona Virus, was Wide Spread Purple, Substantial Red, Moderate Orange, and Minimal Yellow,...was all to go! One had to call in say their order is ready! Thank goodness those two times the person in front of me say they are here to pick up their order, "Also, Do You Have An Order For (MY NAME)?" As of March 2022, yay ah yay, now available to eat inside! We went on a Monday! Of course, having volunteered at their Auburn Salvation Army, I was not that hungry, but to be polite, I suggested Wor Won Ton Soup! Server, Coco (hope spelled right), female! Yes they speak Cantonese! She suggested Medium Size of it! He was hungry, so he ordered General Chicken! Cost for all this not bad, $23.88 with tax! Medium size of Wor Won Ton, we each had four servings of it! Wow, so is enough if one has party of eight, the Medium size will probably feed eight people! Thank you Coco for your great help!More

Ordered the Happy Wok combo for two. The combination sweet and sour was very good. The combination fried rice was stellar. I usually don't even bother with rice. Services were very prompt and polite. Would have given a higher rating if my wonton in my...soup would have been as hot as the soup.More

Visiting family, the day we went there was only one waitress. She was not at all happy, rude, and very slow. Never came back to ask if there was anything we needed or how our food was. I was hungry, which is the only reason...I ate my cold meal. Will not recommend this place to anyone.More

When you go to a restaurant, part of the experience is influenced by the attitude of the staff and that was certainly negative on the occasion of this visit. Our party of four arrived and were pointed to a table. We were never actually acknowledged,...smiled at or really spoken to during our entire visit. It was as if there was a sign in the employee area which stated "Any employee who engages, smiles at or otherwise communicates directly with a customer will be terminated." A very off-putting experience. The food was generally better than average. Our appetizers arrived hot and fresh, but our main entrees were served luke warm. Generally this was not an experience that we enjoyed and one we will not repeat anytime soon.More

There's nothing better than coming home after traveling for three weeks and going to your favorite Asian Restaurant. The food is consistently very delicious. I had to pack up two orders to go. It seemed that the favorite dish was chicken chow mein. It was...all good food. The wait staff is always accommodating. Now they provide a delivery service called Food Jets and the delivery fee is under $4. It's becoming very popular to have your food delivered from this restaurant. I can't wait for the leftovers tonight.More

This restaurant has consistently been the best Chinese in town. Any dish. Their honey walnut prawns are a guilty pleasure. I do love that they offer two things I can’t find anywhere else: shr8mp toast and pork baos (rolls).

Picked up an order to go Saturday evening on our way back into town. As always, food was good and ready within the time they gave us. We also like the fact that they offer some dim sum dishes.

Pretty typical, nothing particularly special. All the typical dishes. Not fond of the Mongolian Beef, but most dishes are fine. Prices about average.

It's always nice to go to a local restaurant and enjoy the food and the company. We got there very early for dinner but by the time we left it was very, very busy. Also, I noted the tremendous amount of to-go orders being picked...up. I had shrimp with vegetables. This is a great choice for those of us who are diabetic. I liked the flavor because it was not salty and it wasn't greasy. You can order rice on the side if you choose to do so. The Kung Pao Chciken was very hot but our young guest liked it that way. The other guest had Scallops in black bean sauce. Everyone was satisfied with their dinner. One suggestion for the wait staff that was a bit annoying, she kept saying is that all? It was like she was forcing us to order more. The service otherwise was very quick and efficient. We ordered an appetizer from their Dim Sum menu. It was like a small dumpling with a sweet filling inside. Make sure you ask to see their Dim Sum Menu. You won't be disappointed.More
