I've been dining here, off and on, for 20 years. I usually have General Tso's chicken. They do a nice, light version. The seasoning is perfect, it's always fresh, and the service is superb. When you're done, you can visit the kitten bar or whatever...More

We did take-out soups to close out a big family celebration weekend. The price is right, the portion sizes ample, and the taste is perfectly fine. No wonder this is a regular Chinese takeout place for sister and brother-in-law.

This ancient family operation still cranks out no frills down home Chinese cuisine. The quality has not faded and the experience although simple is worth the visit if you find yourself in New Haven. I love their wonton soup and general tso's .
