A small storefront restaurant located just east of Harlem Ave., there is seating for about 15 - 20 people, but it seemed like most of the business was take-out or delivery. Their menu is extensive with a number of interesting variations, as well as small or large sizes of the orders. We tried the egg drop soup and the hot... More

A great value. A huge menu. This restaurant is one of the best values on the northwest side of Chicago. It has a Cantonese, Hunan and Thai selections. The food is prepared well and is very consistent. Their delivery service is superb.

The food here is a solid cut above most chinese take out. It tastes fresh and almost wholesome or homemade or something i can't put my finger on, but definitely the opposite of the over salted over fried over processed mucky muck at many take out places. Though Fried Rice Express tastes a lot better than other chinese places, the... More
