Dumplings and egg rolls are tops, had a noodle dish that was excellent as well. Big carry out and delivery place. Service inside was pretty much non existent but the quality of food made up for it. Very inexpensive for the quality.

The service was quite slow. Never checked on us. We had to ask for water twice before more was served. Ordered shrimp with brocoli and it had a reddish sticky sauce on it. Nothing like I had anywhere else. Not a great dish at all.

Everyone around us got white wine as a free bonus for visiting the restaurant but I think they assumed I was to young to drink wine. That’s the only negative I have, it sounds stuck up but I would’ve loved some goon with my Chinese...More
