First, service was average. But the food, yuck. Cream cheese wontons tasted spoiled. Had almond chicken and sweet and sour pork, both covered in thick black sauces. Chow mien had NO flavor at all, their version of fried rice was just white rice with a...More

First of all, I'm not Chinese, but I love Chinese food and we often try Chinese restaurants, but this restaurant was the worst ever. Here's why. The food was just ok, nothing special, nothing that would prompt us to go back there. If it was...More

We used to love coming and gorging ourselves, because they used to have the BEST Almond Chicken with a light creamy sauce and mile high Chow Mein. But since Tony is no longer owner, the food and portions are very disappointing! We will have to...More
