This small Chinese restaurant is built into the same building that used to be the Friendlies Ice Cream store when I lived in this town. It is a decent little restaurant with only about 15 tables, but has a pleasing interior with wood beam décor....More

We just ordered sushi, house chow mein and moo shoo chicken. The sushi was hard and sour. The other dishes had hardly any protein in it. It was probably the worst dinner we’ve had in a long time. Whoever said that they had delicious exotic...More

Although not among the top Chinese restaurants in New Jersey it is a very good choice. We had two top quality dishes to share. We recommend both. * Cold sesame noodles... *Turbo fillet in ginger sauce with scallions.

Have picked up food from this Chinese restaurant a few times and it's always pretty good and always ready when I get there. I recommend this place.

Service was good. Food was okay. I dined in the later evening. It was cold in the restaurant. The staff was considerate about the setting sun in the customers eyes and drew the shade accordingly.

It was one of those late nights at work and we decided to order in. We were pleasantly surprised how quick and delicious the food is. We will definitely order for them again. Servings are huge and I recommend the duck it was very tasty.
