Not a Chinese food fan at all but this place puts out some tasty food. Always seems fresh and made to order. Service is quick & friendly, they have beer & wine. I always go with the fish special, its really good!

Some of the best Chinese food outside a big Chinatown venue. Very attentive service and really fresh and tasty food more than offsets a somewhat bland interior. Food was generous in terms of portion and clearly prepared to order. I would suggest a lot of the food is really homemade; for example crab rangoons.

Just walked in and the servers were very pleasant and food was good and reasonable. It wasn't crowded for a week night. Located in town center.

My husband just picked up our Chinese foreign exchange student and they happened to stop in your restaurant tonight. Thank you for a wonderful meal. They were so pleased about this place and we will gladly return.

We ate here on our honeymoon trip and it was by far the best Chinese food that we have had in a long time! All the food was fresh and service was incredibly fast! We had the sweet and sour chicken as well as the sesame chicken and both were absolutely delicious! We would highly recommend this trip to anyone... More

If you order the chefs special you will pay for it, get a soup, and then be told that is all you ordered. Food is okay at best.

We do not normally respond to these reviews as we take the comments to better our restaurant. However, this was not our mistake. You did not order or pick up the dinners yourself. You sent two gentleman to our restaurant who did not order the complete meal you are referring to. On the top of our menu, it clearly states... More

Beautiful Asian host and server. We said we needed our food in a hurry to catch a movie. She was fast and super accommodating. Food is fantastic, wine very affordable. If you love simple, delicious, affordable and great service come here.
