Uncertain what to order, we stuck with an old staple, beef lo mein. The portions were huge, and tasted very good. We were advised to try the Pad Thai next time, as it's one of their specialties they are known for. Definitely looking forward to going back.

The food was really delicious, the waitress fun and entertaining and a comfortable setting. Went away full and satisfied. Only draw back was with SO many patrons, the waitress was somewhat overwhelmed.

As for where it is, one of the better places to eat in Ely. Chef is pretty well versed in asian cooking, food is fresh, and cimes quickly. Friendly owners and prices for Ely aren't bad. They have specials and family dinnets as well as take out. Definitely worth eating at if you want some asian food.Not fancy but good.

Yesterday, had the shrimp and vegetables with garlic sauce, most tasty. Considered eating it again today, but went for the war wanton soup. It is pretty good.

I gave it a 5 star ating for a couple of reasons. First, it is the best Chinese in Ely and second, it's better than a lot of Chinese Restaurants In Reno. Second, the menu is varied and they even had a large Vegetarian seection. We sat at a nice booth and were served immediately . They were friendly and... More

I am a local and have always preferred the other Chinese restaurant but decided to try this place again since it's under new management. Have eaten here four times since April and have not been disappointed. They also offer a few Thai dishes which is a nice change. Tried the pad thai, it was okay but a little bland. I'm... More

We were pleased to find a decent Chinese restaurant in Ely. The food was well prepared and tasty. The owner hostess told us she had been open for one week and is still waiting for their liquor license. We wish them well and hope they survive.

There aren't too many places to eat in Ely. We decided to try their Chinese restaurant. First, it took 30 minutes to get some hot tea because they didn't have any water boiling. Second, our food came at different times. There isn't much atmosphere and the food was just OK.

Thank rzman
