More of a take out place. They do have tables but not super relaxing. Ordered Pork fried dumplings - not great I think they came out of a bag frozen Sesame chicken- the sauce was good But more breading than chicken and 4 small pieces of broccoli. To bad could been very than average Pork fried rice was the thing... More

My favorite Chinese restaurant since they opened! I've been to about 20 different Chinese restaurants in my lifetime and this place has the freshest most flavorful dishes. I'm surprised at all the negative reviews. To me the dishes are generous portions and I wind up taking home half my order. It's no more expensive than other fast food joints around... More

This has been our go-to family place for years whenever we can't decide on where to eat. We each have a favorite dish, from Lo-mein, to szechuan chicken, to sweet and sour.

This used to be my go to place for Chinese food. Something has changed and that makes me very sad! The crab rangoons were my favorite until recently! Recently they are cold and soggy. The shrimp in the Pad Thai has been smaller and not as abundant. Please go back to how it used to be!

What happened to the Lo Mein? It was the best in the area but now just over cooked noodles doused with peanut oil and soy sauce. Used to be made with sesame oil for much better flavor. Cutting corners with cheaper ingredients on all dishes now. Must be the new management.
