Good location on First Street. Interior was very bland and lacked atmosphere. Had the house scallops and the Szechwan velvet chicken and both were average. Would also rate the service as being average as we had to track down our server to refill drinks. Overall, I would rate our experience as average.

Went here for my birthday today. Best meal yet in Benicia, CA. Gad the meal for two with hot and sour soup. Absolutely delicious and we've been to a lot of authentic Chinese.

We were visiting from out of town and we to dinner with some friends who are locals. What a great discovery. Downtown Benicia is very quaint. Our friends felt this would be the best place for dinner. Great food and plenty of it to share. As with most Chinese Restaurants, you expect to order a plate and pass it along.... More

We all thought our meals were very good. Portions are very generous. Brown rice is offered as an option over white rice. Great for the vegetarians at our table of 6. Servers were very nice too. Criticism: Skip the spare ribs unless they change the recipe--tasteless & dried out.

They have a good lunch buffet. I love the Chinese chicken and sweet and sour pork. Good variety and it's good for large parties.

All the food is fantastic and I've eaten a lot of Chinese. Walnut prawns are to die for. Always a table available. A great Benicia secret.
