My lunch was bland but the husband liked his happy family. Shrimp were tasty and the tea rocked. Probably our last visit.

This place is right down the street and it took a groupon blunder to get me here (there's a Mars Inn Chinese place also down the road, um confusing much?) Anyways, I was already there so I decided to order. I also ordered a glass of wine while I waited. She brought me a wine glass filled to the brim!!... More

My husband and I recently ate here for lunch, as we work nearby. We were promptly greeted and given our choice of tables. And you know how surfaces in Chinese restaurants are often sticky to the touch? The tables and chairs in this restaurant were NOT! I love that. So far, so good. We were able to order soon after...

I have been here three times in the past 4-6 weeks. The fresh food keeps bringing me back.....but the service is horrible. All three times the servers have borderline ignored us. They take the order and that is about it, no follow up service. They are also not friendly or engaging at all. The food is good, like I said,... More

We really like the extensive menu at Mar's as the choices treat a variety of tastes - from light to heavy. The Mar's Deluxe Fried Rice is a hit with even picky eaters. The portions are generous so it is easy to split meals for a family. The Kung Pao Chicken is spicy, but more flavorful than hot.

Very good for a strip-mall Chinese food cafe. Eat-in and take out. Fast service. Do wish they had Mu-shu on the menu. Serves beer.

We have been going to this local little Chinese restaurant for over ten years now and it still has some of the best tasting Chinese food in town. Most of the time we have takeout, but occasionally we dine in. The service is quick and friendly.Look for the daily specials written on a blackboard located in the front just as... More

Walked in off the street and checked to see if they had beef with black bean sauce. They had it with chicken and they had it with shrimp but they didn't have it with beef. I asked the waitress if they could make it for me and they were quite accommodating. You can find beef with black bean sauce at... More

I had heard good things about Mars and finally decided to try it. The portions were indeed large, as others have commented, but pretty flavorless. Pan fried noodles were stuck together and had no spice on them at all - just oily. We asked for extra spicy on our other 2 meals, but either she did not hear, or they... More
