I ordered Tea Pot.I had lo mein and Beef and broccoli. The beef and broccoli was suppose to come with brown or white rice. It was a delivery order. Once it was realized that there was no rice I contacted the store back. The rice...was brought out alone 30 minutes later. The original food was half eaten and cold. I requested a small portion of beef and broccoli to go with the newly delivered rice. The owner basically said ill give you a free egg roll. My response was a free egg roll. No, I want my food in the way it should have come. I will never order from this place again. I shared with her that that is not business and the order should have been re-made and given the correct way.More

Maybe I caught them on the wrong day, maybe I didn't get the right thing, maybe they are shorthanded and overworked, or maybe my energy gave off a bad vibe as soon as I walked in. I had a very different experience than all these...high stars i see! 1147 on a Friday, I popped in because I could not turn into Zaxby's due to the line. I have seen this place for years, figured I would give them a shot. I made my usual first time I try a chinese place order: Chicken wings and Pork fried rice. $11.95..."How many wings with that?" ...."6....".... " Okay give me six more.." "Wings come 8..." "Okay, 8" $23.87....."And thats just the wings right?"..."yes"..."no rice?" "Yes". I felt overcharged,but it didn't matter if it taste good right? The rice was hot but bland, wings fried hard and had black spots in the meat at the joints,and it was salty! NEVER AGAIN! Avoid at all cost, there are too many other Chinese places to eat in town. If I could give them a zero I would!More

We ordered food delivered to our hotel as husband had done so a month or so ago and thought it was so good he wanted to have it again. I was surprised when it came quickly - within 30 minutes and was hot and very...tasty. Nice to not have to go out after a long drive. The Happy Family was excellent as were the veggie egg rolls.More

Take-out during the social distancing time worked just fine. The owner said they were closing the next day till further notice. The pepper and onion been and shrimp with veggies were both good and plenty.

The hot & sour soup was the best that we have tasted. I understand that this restaurant has been here about 15 years.

Ordered delivery. Waited over an hour and a half for our food. We called restaurant at hour mark to check status and they said it was “in route”. Still waited another 30 mins for it to arrive. Sesame chicken was cold with thick gloopy sauce....Cold rice. Fried wontons were practically inedible. Hard, stale, cold, grease. Dry filling yet interior dough was raw. Sweet and sour chicken soggy and cold. Was hangry by the time food arrived and will not be ordering again.More

We ordered take out and it wasn’t very good. The “veggie fried rice” had hardy any veggies and is was yellow. The chicken was dry, it just wasn’t really even average Chinese takeout. I don’t think I would willfully choose to eat from here again.

We ordered delivery to our hotel we stayed at. First off it took 45mins to an hour to be delivered. That should have been my first sign. When the food arrived it smelled like old cigarette smoke. I took one bite and almost threw up....We called the place back to explain our issues and I quote " I agree the food is horrible, you can post a review but the owners will not care." I am starting a dispute with my credit card company today after it clears. Please save yourself the trouble and order somewhere else.More

I use to go here and lot when I was in college and the food is still good 7 years later. I always get the general tso chicken. That's what I got recently. Chicken nice and crispy with a little kick in spicy flavor. The...rice is always good and not mushy. Very tasty egg roll. I've never dined in so I can't attest to the service. But a to go order is ready in a timely manner and they offer military discount.More

I did not like the food and it smelled horrible the moment I put it in my car. I couldn't even finish the first bite. The chicken wings look like little drummettes. You could tell they were refried. I read reviews before trying them and...saw more good than bad on Yelp. They have a sign up in the restaurant that they will give a order of Free doughnuts if you show them you made a good Yelp Review!!! Ridiculous to bribe I see why they have to now. Your food should speak for itself.More

We've been here twice recently and both times the food was yummy. The lady who answered the phone even helped create a special combination of lomein and fried rice for my son who enjoys both. The food is always hot and freshly prepared. I highly...suggest teriyaki beef, sesame chicken combo and the pork in garlic sauce. The egg rolls are one of my favorites as well.More

Very quaint spot that you could easily miss driving by. They have the best Sesame Chicken in town! A lot of food for the money! Not your typical staff but they get the job done and are very friendly / helpful
