We got food to go and it good. It's your very typical Chinese American restaurant. We'd have done better to call our order in because we had a bit of a wait to get the food.

They have a large menu. The food is very reasonably priced. They give very large serving. The food is pretty good also. The service was very good.

Only game in town for Chinese, so I guess they don't have to try too hard. Adequate food for the money. If they tell you 20 minutes, they mean 45. If you start asking about the wait - they'll let you know that "staring at the kitchen won't help". The place was not crowded on a Tuesday night.

The hostess was really sweet. We attempted the buffet- enjoyed the creme puffs, the sweet and sour pork and the sweet and sour soup and egg flower soup. The chicken beans entree was good. Restaurant is favorably located in downtown

We were staying at a great motel and wanted takeout Chinese food. There were several Chinese restaurants listed in the directory and I decided to go to Lai Lai because it was a block away. Reviews were from great to lousy but I found the staff congenial and happy to help. I was told how long it would take and... More

The price is good because they give out big portion. There's many items to choose from. My family love Kung pao shrimp, orange chicken, house fried rice, and the yummy crab puffs. The cool part is you can order things from the bar and the waitress will bring to you. Kudos to that.

They had a Gluten Free option for us, as well as normal Chinese food. Everything was prepared fresh, although it took a while to prepare (it could of been because of the gfree meal). Big portions, no one, not even the teen age boys, could finish their meal.
