Always very good as they make it right when you order and then it's out to you in a very fast and timely manner. No frills, just awesome, fresh tasting food with a great staff who are always friendly. The absolute best crab rangoons I've ever tasted!!

After reading reviews here, I chose to grab a meal for takeout. I jad the honey chicken. Delicious, fresh & crispy chicken in a delicious sweet glaze. The crab Rangoon was great as well. The portion size is very large (i got the combination platter) $7. This came with fried rice & and an eggroll. Located in a strip mall... More

I recommend lunch as the prices are very reasonable and there is plenty of food. The restaurant is small but I will go again.

This is some of the best Chinese food in the area. They always make it fresh when you order and it is my family's favorite. The atmosphere isn't great, but the food can't be beat. They have a lunch buffet, but I've only gotten take out. It's perfect for concerts in the park! Too much food for very little price.

Have been to many of these types of Chinese food restaurants in NE Iowa & the menus, quality/quantity of food & pricing are basically the same.

We really enjoy their food. Their crab Rangoon is not to be missed. The buffet is always very busy and food is fresh.

I love to pop in here and grab some crab rangoons and egg drop soup! They are quick and their food rocks. Inexpensive.

They have the best Chicken Chow Mein here! It is just like my grandmother use to make. It is in a creamy chicken sauce with lots of chicken, celery, veggies and crispy noodles. They also have a really decent lunch buffet with about 8 different types of food for $5.50 a person.

Looked up this place on tripadvisor and went out of my way to eat at a highly rated Chinese restaurant. Turned out to be only average.
