What I love about this place is that there is usually always a new item on the menu. The owners seem to enjoy bring new creations to their customers.

Food was horrible. Service is minimal. I felt sick afterwards and wondered if the food had been sitting too long. Table we sat in had grime on seats. Won't ever go back.

A little over priced. Food seems to sit to long. Not much in service. Fairly clean there are better choices in the area.

Overall it is very good, some times better than others. I have never had old cold food , yes sometimes they run low on certain things but if you just ask they bring it right out, remember the people before you may have loaded up their plate with crab legs , don't cry there is enough for everyone.

I have eaten here many times. There are a few other Chinese food places in the area and this is one of the better ones. Food is good and fresh. The Mongolian Grill is delicious. Sushi good as well. Lots of seating and large parking lot. Clean. They also do take out which is quick and delicious.
