Have eaten here many times, though this is the first time in over a year. Got the asparagus chicken with white meat - a favorite for all of us. Mushu (?) chicken is always good.

Had lunch here on a Tuesday with the locals. The menu lists old fashioned home style Cantonese food which is more mild than other China regions. This is my comfort food where I cannot master the hot/spicy/peppered food served in the newer Asian/Fusion restaurants. Located in a strip mall with free parking along the cafe's side on Freeport Blvd. with... More

They boast authentic flavoring a, but I find their food to be mediocre no better that most mall food take out. Quite disappointed with service and roast meats. Will not be returning.

If we want something quick and good my husband and I always go to this place to eat. We have not been disappointed with their food and the value is also great.

We have eaten here several times over the years. Food selection is varied and we have never had a lousy meal. Service is attentive. A popular location for Asian diners so that was a plus knowing the cuisine wouldn't be typical Americanized Chinese food.

Food is great here and service also. They have lunch specials and great combos. Always good and the fried rice and chow mein are the best I have ever had. It has been in the same place for many years and has regular loyal customers. This should speak for itself!

Went yesterday with a large group, and food was outstanding, good service. Best dishes included sticky rice chicken, baked sea bass, three kinds of mushroom, walnut shrimp. Portions are large, tasty, and value priced.

I love coming here for dinner, it's my favorite hole in the wall restaurant in Sacramento. You will not find fancy decorations or the extras that some restaurants put in their food to make you think that you are "eating out", if you know what I mean. Nothing too spicy, oily, or salty to punch it up. Just good old... More

This place reminds of the old days (1950s & 60s) in San Francisco's Chinatown. Tasty food, low prices, variable service. I think most of the diners are regulars. We like it and always order enough that we have a meal to take home.

Thank Un R
