I have been going to this resturaunt for over 10 yrs. I love it. Such good food and nice atmosphere. My favorite waiter is Philip. He makes you feel like family. The Cherry Chicken is delishious, also the fried chicken dumplings and shrimp toast.

We have continued to eat at Mencius' for over 20 years, because the freshness and quality are exceptional. Perfect for lunch or dinner. The owners aim to please and want to make your dining experience special. Don't miss out on a delightful meal.
