Old man taking orders is usually really rude but in spite of that the food is much better then all others around hands down. Don't worry they have a large very large delivery area!!

It's sad that the food isn't what it was before the "remodeling". I've gone 3 times since it re-opened and each experience was worst than the previous. The only good thing I find is that they hired a diversified staff(that needs training). The staff of young unprofessional high school students leaves a lot to be desired... I wanted to like... More

Just got off the phone trying to order delivery because the experience in the store is ridiculous. We thought ordering over the phone would allows us to skip the horrible counter service and still get the only dish that we always order. Only we couldn't do it. We faced an aggressive employee on the phone when trying to get the... More

My wife and I went back here after their reopening. Disappointed that they did away with the more formal sit down dinning room. Food was excellent as always. New SS table make the place seem cold. Very busy as usual. Most likely will continue to do take out.

I may eat Chinese food 1-2x yr and this week I was in the mood for it. I like this spot due to it's cleanliness, service, & quality. However, I was disappointed the last trait. First off, I must commend the new owner which is my understanding the previous owner's son, for creating diversity. This is the 1st Chinese restaurant... More

Always a good sit down Chinese meal in their side dinner room. Always very friendly and attentive to all our needs. We have been eating here for many years.

I came very hungry/in a horrible mood and left with a full stomach of General Tsos. It turned my day around. The place is really clean and the staff was friendly. Very easy on the wallet too
