We have eaten there many times, because the food and service are so good. They also sell a lot of take-out.

Stopped in for lunch with my sister. Very good menu selections. Thought it was a little overpriced for the area but once we were served our dishes, I see why. The plates were loaded and we had a lot of good food to take home. The waitress was perfect and food served very quickly and hot. Everything tasted great except... More

We stopped by because of the reviews, but found the food so-so. The snow pea beef was good and the egg rolls too. We tried the lemon chicken which had fresh lemon zest but a little too breaded for us. I would pass on the crab wontons--just cream cheese. Service was prompt and very friendly.

HANDS down the best Chinese food in Northern California. Fast service and friendly atmosphere. Even if you are just travelling through Oroville you must stop and taste their food. SO GOOD.

To what I understand it sold to new owners. I have eaten at this restaurant for over 40 years. Always loved it, always compared it to others all over this country and considered it one of the best. Moved away years ago but when we come back for a visit always eat here as much as I can. Not no... More
