The food here is very good, you can tell it is authentic compared to other American-Chinese restaurants. The portions are very large, more for group ordering than individual orders. It is expensive but it is worth it.

The location is the heart of Green Street and is always busy. Many Chinese customers so you know it is place ot try. The wait staff was a little confused with a local family. The place is slightly outdated and the carpet should be replaced....More

Restaurant was filled with students, of course. They may not have noticed the tiny roaches running freely along the walls and a couple over the tables. NOT hygienic at all.

Probably the most decent Chinese place one could find in Champaign town until I discovered the newly opened AnSun. Lai Lai Wok will not figure as much in my Chinese food cravings in the future.
