Used to go here all the time. Good food at really good prices for the portions you got. Last time in there, the bottles on the table looked very dirty and sticky. Upon picking one up, my husband noticed not one but 4 nats floating in the orange sweet and sour sauce. NO THANK YOU. I can get good food... More

Know the owners and have been a long time customer. I absolutely their food! I always get the sweet and sour chicken and they always make it taste divine! The crab Ragoons are awesome and always order quite a few orders. The best fried rice I've ever had. The ONLY place I go for Chinese food.

We have never dined in. We always order carry out. One of our favorite dishes is sweet-and-sour chicken. The sauce is more of a pineapple base. The portions are large, great value.

Don't let the name fool you ... this is just another Chinese Restaurant. Menu is sit-down carry out. Nothing Fancy. Food is average ... salty and in some cases mushy. In spite of all this, service is good, price is right and location is easy to get to.
