Girlfriend likes this place, not me. Popular and usually has a long line. They will let you sample any entree (the lady in front of us tried three items). Food is fresh and a good value ... BUT bland & basic. CASH ONLY. Ambience =...More

This restaurant has extremely fresh Chinese food as evidenced by the long line at mealtimes and the constant exchange of empty trays for full through the kitchen pass through window. A three Item combo will contain rice (fried or white) chow mein and three entrees....More
