The service was excellent and the food even better! We had the lunch specials and it came with more food than listed. I had the sweet sour soup and my husband had the egg drop. Both were rich and flavorful! They even brought crispy strips...to put on top. Everything was fresh and tasted delicious. It was a great value for everything we got and plenty to take home for another meal.More

The food my wife and I had was delicious and the presentation was on spot. I ordered mongol-en beef it was tender and tasty. Now i will say the restaurant on inside could use help but the food was still good.

We have eaten at Reds several times....But this time was the worst !!! The Orange Chicken and the Chicken with Mushroom were both so gristley and flavorless. The Vegetable Lo-Mein was sour and gummy. This was the WORST $30. EVER spent. I hope we don’t...get sick from it. 🤢More

This is not fantastic Chinese food as promised by some previous reviews. It is fine. And, not exactly an inviting atmosphere. I ordered the Moo Shu Pork. It was a different presentation than I typically expect from Moo Shu Pork. The pork and vegetables were...sliced, not shredded. And, no delicate pancakes here, just plain white rice.More

Late lunch time and we really didn’t think it was open. The parking lot was filthy, littered heavily, and weeds all around. We should have gotten back in the car. The dining looked neat when we entered at least. The menus handed to us were...in VERY poor condition and confusing. Prices were not cheap either. I finally asked if they had a lunch menu, which was actually more of a takeout menu. We tried to order just a stir fried veggie, but that only came with garlic, which we didn’t want—couldn’t even get it plain. We settled on spring rolls. They were tiny, but cheap—about two inches long and about the thickness of my index finger. I also noticed how hot it was in the dining room. Customer service was VERY lacking for having no customers, and the floors did not look like they had been swept. We will NOT return.More

Ordered General Tso’s chicken with broccoli and it was a lot of chicken. Good taste. Aldo got egg drop and it was rather tasteless.

I was here only two months ago and convinced family that the food was great. I had the veggie tofu soup that was tasteless. My garlic chicken was drenched in oil. See picture. I won’t be back.

A couple of tables full of Chinese students, maybe 16 total, which we took as a great testimonial to the food...but we were not overwhelmed. Good but not great. On the positive side: Extensive menu with lots of options, some exotic. However, given the size...of our group, we were seated in the back, and it felt like we were in rural China - unfinished wall paneling, construction materials sitting around...in short, not the most pleasant dining experience.More

A colleague from China took me here, which is probably automatically a sign that they're doing something right. While they have many standard American items, you'll see many organ meats and other dishes you won't usually see in the USA. Their specialty is Szechuan. I'd...hoped to go back to try some other items (including, perhaps, some items I might recognize more.) However, they were inexplicable closed midweek. Hopefully that's just an anomaly.More

We'd ordered take out from there previously, but decided to stop and eat in. Menu is extensive and different than most Chinese in town. Food quality is decent quality, better than average, but not "great". We ordered a spicy dish and the peppers were there...in the dish, but not much flavor. We'd ordered take out than eye-watering spicy when it was the same level hotness. Flavors inconsistent. One friend got Moo Shu dish but no pancakes or sauce like we received when we had take out. Nice that they brought oranges to clean palate at the end. Service was super quick and friendly. Will try again and try more dishes.More

We were in town for the night and wanted something "different". Reading reviews, this looked too good to pass up. We didn't mind that we were the only folks over 20-something in the place or that we didn't really know what we were ordering. This...is authentic Chinese and a popular place for college kids. The place was packed and I see why! Our waiter was very gracious in helping us select something. This is NOT the average, ordinary "Chinese" restaurant. Fantastic!More

I went to this restaurant for the first time today for lunch. I ordered hot tea for myself and water for my 18mos old daughter. The hot tea was very good, but the water they brought for my daughter was in a regular glass with...no lid. That made it a little difficult because I was worried the whole time she would knock it over. I ordered a lot of food because wanted the hot and sour soup but I knew my daughter wouldn't eat that so I also got the vegetable spring rolls, chicken with broccoli and fried rice. Everything I ordered came out quickly but it all came out at the same time, I wish it had been served more like courses because by the time I was done with my soup the other food had gotten a little cold. I only had one small bite of the spring rolls and I thought they were good. Apparently my daughter agreed because she ate those right up. The hot and sour soup was very good and the small size was bigger than I expected. The chicken and broccoli was good as was the fried rice. I couldn't finish everything but I enjoyed it all. At the end the waitress brought out orange slices, which was a nice finishing touch.More

I returned to Red with friends to be totally charmed. Clean and bright and open. The food was terrific and I will now put this on my regular list for lunches. There was not special lunch menu but portions were not too large and the...price was reasonable. Definitely worth giving it a try for good Chinese, a cut above every Chinese takeaway in the region.More
