I have gotten takeaway from this restaurant before and it was always amazing so to be able to dine in the restaurant for once was a pleasant change (Dec 2023). The food is amazing, I cannot speak to authenticity but the flavors of the dish...i ordered (Sauteed Cumin Flavored Sliced Lamb with Onion) were complex and bold, and honestly a bit spicier than i anticipated but still fully enjoyed. You need to try this place.More

Great luncheon menu at great price. Chicken and shrimp with vegetables was a full plate, with choice of rice. Very tasty. Beef with bamboo shoots was a great hit, also with choice of rice. Prices cannot be beat.

Got takeout house special fried rice . There was minimal amounts of meat and shrimp in it . Flavour was lacking and not up to their previous magical food. My wife said it appeared to have different ownership . Is it

Had an excellent lunch . Egg roll ,hot sour soup, chicken dish with fried rice - all for under $11 . Why McDonald when you can have a real,tasty meal in a real restaurant. Not fancy , but clean and neat. Their dinners are also...excellent as the Will mix and match some dishes . It will not disappoint as it is a cut above your average Chinese restaurant. There are many dishes that don’t have western appeal on the menu . I would love to try them .Too bad that they don’t have a dish called the exotic sampler that has 3 or 4 of your choice separated on a plate to try .More

The real Chinese ,I think.lots of people of Chinese descent appear to eat there. The food is delicious and plentiful. Many dishes are quite unusual to western meals. Wife won’t try them ,but some day I’ll attempt to eat what we would all bizarre ....A great meal and leftovers for breakfast. They also since last year redid the place a bit.More

Ordered takeout from them and food was good. Person taking the order was rude and dis-courteous. Asked for sauce at time of order and was told ask when you get here to pickup. Came and bag was already put together and sealed for safety. No...sauce provided. Order had onions which we asked to not include.More

They are open for indoor dining and we felt safe. Our dishes were competently prepared. Their scallion pancakes were excellent. Our other appetizers were just ok. The orange chicken was overcooked making the breading hard and the chicken rubbery. The Mongolian beef was quite tasty.

I usually get delicious food from here but the other day I ordered some of my usual favorites and everything was lousy! Veggies were so over cooked. Sesame Chicken tasted like it was from the freezer after 6 months. Hot & sour soup was terrible....Was there a different chef? Not sure if I will be back. Please change back to original chef.More

Told about this place from the manager of Ginkgo in Fairfield as a good spot in Milford. He did not steer us wrong. There is little ambiance, but the food is great and the prices are even better. We started with Won Ton soup, which...I normally complain is made with a chicken who runs through the soup for half a dozen restaurants. This was not the case here. The soup had taste, texture, and the wontons were plump. House fried rice with shrimp was great, and had at least 9 medium sized shrimp in the mix. Mongolian Beef with onions was a large portion of thin sliced beef in a tasty but not Spicy sauce. Kung Pao chicken with vegetables was plentiful of bot chicken and vegetables in a light tangy sauce. We now where know where to go in Milford.More

I like the food, especially the lunch specials. Hot/sour soup and Twice Cooked Sliced Pork w. Szechuan Jalapeno are my favorites. It's a regular stop in our lunch restaurant rotation. BUT, last time we went, the male server brought the regular menu instead of the...lunch menu. There was only one other party seated at 1:15 PM so, still lunch time. That was not a big deal, but our server sat talking with co-workers at the large round table. When the second person in our party arrived, we waited and waited. We finally got up and asked for the lunch menu. He got it but then we waited and waited while the servers sat and talked. We finally got up and told them we were ready to order. Maybe the guy is new. But, really, I shouldn't have to chase down the server. He could have been a lot more attentive. It's not like the place was busy.More

We'd heard some hub-bub about this place and finally decided to give it a try. The place itself is a room with tables in it--no ambiance. The service was average, at best. The food was good, nothing I'd want again. I won't recommend this place.

Small place at the end of of a strip mall - maybe 12 tables - but what a great place! We will be back again! Menu was deep with some unusual options. Very fresh and tasty. Everyone loved what they ordered - sweet and sour...chicken, dan dan noodles with minced pork, spicy rice noodles with chicken, beef curry noodle bowl, and pork dumplings. And fresh juicy watermelon for dessert. A popular place with those who know Chinese food.More

We’ve been here several times and always the vast majority of customers are Chinese...which is a good sign. The menu is definitely not your average American Chinese restaurant. My suggestion is that they hire more staff on weekends and holidays. We were a party of...4 Friday night and service couldn’t have been worse. Recommend scallion pancake and steamed dumplings. The eggplant stuffed with shrimp was good but difficult to eat with chopsticks or fork. Portions were fairly small except for the whole fish.More
