We ordered take-out dinners consisting of an order of beef and broccoli, an order of mushrooms and chicken,and 2 orders of steamed rice. Each individual dish was enough for 2 persons. The restaurant itself is quite casual, service was fast, and prices were reasonable.

The best way to describe this spot is a poor imitation of Panda Express. It's greasier without as many options. It's not a comfortable place to dine. Mostly it's a spot for locals to grab a quick bite. If you're a tourist it's probably best...More

The atmosphere and service isn't much to write about. However, we loved the Honey Walnut Shrimp. It was probably the best I've had. We'll return.
