This is just average Chinese food and some of it wasn't great. Crab ragoons are filled with WAY too much cream cheese. My spicy shrimp was tasteless. I think it was just sweet & sour sauce poured over the shrimp--tasteless! General Tsao was average. The hot and sour soup was so icky, that I had to spit it out. D.C.'s... More

Food was bland and service was horrible. Forgot part of our order and wanted to charge for what was forgotten. Told me I was wrong and that they won't give out free food.

Typical style layout of a Chinese buffet style Restaurant. it is a busy establishment, so much to choose from buffet whether a vegetarian, diabetic or health conscious. Lots of beef, chicken, pork(I don't eat) and an array of seafood. The fruit is fresh,... More

I think the only reason this place is in business is because of its proximity to the college. So kids just go there because it's convienently located. My in-laws order from this place so I've regretfully eaten from here several times, But their food is terrible. Wonton soup broth tastes like dirty dish water and chicken and beef dishes have...

Very busy place with students, visitors and locals. Really really good food and super cheap. They have some great dishes that I never have had as well as the old standbys. ALthough I ordered beef fried rice I think I had two fingernail sized pieces of beef in the classic chinese carton but it was really good fried rice. Everything... More

Typical Americanized Chinese takeout. Conveniently located next to a laundromat, but if you have your own machine, probably not worth the effort.

This is the best, cheapest, and most delious chinese near campus. Plus its dirt cheap. Their springrolls are amazing, and if you don't eat meat, order tofu with black bean!
