My wife and I have eaten in Chinese restaurants across this country, and in different places in China, and find this to be a terrific value: in taste, big portions and reasonable price. This family operation is very friendly, and provides excellent service. We are very privileged to have such a high value restaurant in our small community.

The workers here are absolutely wonderful. I frequently visit their lounge but I am not hesitant to order the food. I highly recommend both the restaurant and lounge.
