Just allful. Ordered beef fried rice, no flavor. Not what I expected. Over priced. Water was in a big orange container, like you would see at a construction site, and warm.

WE have gone to Enlai for years and the food is always a good value for the price. Quality has remained consistent through the years.....everything is good.

Every meal I have ever had here has been delicious. It's nice to dine in sometimes also, the food is even better then.

This is our family's place for Chinese. Always get the sesame chicken. Good egg rolls too! It's not fancy but is consistently good.
