The menu seems extensive but the food tastes much the same from dish to dish. Last time the seating showed its age too. The food is the sort that quickly soaks through the to go containers but is plentiful and filling.

Good Chinese food. I had wonton soup and deep fried shrimp in a nice batter. Both seemed a little under done, but not much.

This Chinese restaurant served surprisingly good food for such a small town. Our meals were delicious and we ate much more than we would normally in the US. We recommend it highly.

I've gone to this restaurant a lot. They give you a TON of food. The rice and wonton and great! Plus the fried shrimp and eggrolls are delicious. The inside of the building could use a little love. The customer service can vary, but you'll never get terrible service. Overall, worth it! Also, try their almond cookies!!

This place appears to be a little run down at first appearance but don't let that fool you!! This place has the best hot braised shrimp I have ever tasted. The combination of hot, spicy and sweet! Wow!! The sizzling rice soup is so damn flavorful! omg!! The mandarin house chow mein is a mouth watering delight. The chow mein... More
