This is our families favorite Chinese place. We eat here all the time. The chicken fried rice is always good. They serve Sushi and other Asian dishes as well. Never had a bad meal.

This was only the second time going and it just wasn't that good. Everything seemed fresh, flavors just weren't that great. Everything was just, eh. Maybe I'll try them one more time. Someday.

This is my go to Asian restaurant! The staff is friendly. The choices are great, from typical Chinese to curries and sushi. Prices are reasonable, the atmosphere is decent. The special sushi rolls include soup, Mexican bubble roll is delicious! They have lunch specials.

My kids and I go regularly for dinner. It's always a pleasant experience. The food, all of it, is delicious, fast, and filling. They greet us like we are welcomed friends, even family. Casual dining at its finest. Easy on the wallet and enough to take home, at least something to remind us of our great time. Oriental Express is... More

We ate lunch here today and enjoyed the careful preparation and delicious flavors! Our server was very attentive. Order the Kansas Roll! Topped with a fried banana. I know. Seems strange but oh so good. Clean and modern atmosphere. We'll be back!

After reading many of the other reviews here, we decided to this place over some of the other Asian restaurants we have tried in the area. The establishment is a converted diner that has been remodeled, which does still look clean inside. After receiving the first item we had ordered, Wonton Soup, we could tell this was going to be...

We are traveling through the area and located this place thanks to this app. We ordered the sushi. The inside is nice with a friendly atmosphere and the food was very good, ordered the Kansas roll.

Ate at this restaurant instead of having delivery. Very nice atmosphere! Restaurant is nicely decorated. We had 2 orders of Crab Rangoon which was very good. Sweet & Sour Chicken was also very good. Very clean, nice friendly people and fast service. Servers are very good. Good place to go for Chinese food with reasonable prices! We will eat here... More
