Heard about this place from friends and family. One afternoon as I was driving by, decided to do lunch there and see what people were talking about. The menu was quite diverse with plenty selections. The food was really good and the portions were humungous! Will eat there again.

On the advice of a friend, ordered take-out and it was awful. I don't know whether it was because they knew we wouldn't see it or taste it til we got it home, or what. May well be good if you eat there. But don't order take-out.

First I must say I have not stayed to eat in the restaurant, we have always done take out. The restaurant is always busy. The take out is always ready when we arrive and is always hot when I get home. Prices are good and the food is excellent! Recommend highly.

We and our friends were first time visitors. The place is small but the food was wonderful. They do a huge take-out business as we sat near the front entrance. None of us were disappointed with the food or portions that were served. It is not normal for me to take any food home. In this case there was just... More

The food is very good and always with a wonderful taste. The service is friendly and helpful. Nice lunch specials. Good selection of items. I would recommend giving it a try next time you are looking for Chinese food. Hot and sour soup, beef tomato, rice dishes and chicken dishes all very good.
