Some of the best Chinese food I have ever eaten. Every time on my way thru Old Forge I stop live the beef and broccoli and the fried rice.

Although it is the only Chinese restaurant in the area, I never have a complaint. Family run and always the freshest, hottest meal. Great General Tso Shrimp. Always one of my favorites.
