“The place is crowded because the food is good”
Reviewed July 25, 2012

My wife and I have been to this Hons retaurant several times. Food is between $6.25 - 8.75 depending on what you order. They have this combination that includes broccoli beef, corn soup, fried rice and dumplings for around $22. Tea is the drink and you can have as much refill as you want. They serve a lot of food that many people including us would end up packing the left overs. The place is very busy and the tables are tightly spaced. You must come at around 11:00 to get in and find a good seat. Service is fast and the routinely ever present waiters and waitresses are the same over and over again. We found out that most people on payroll at this restaurant are also business partners. We noticed that at certain time, some waiters take their breaks and eat the same food they serve to the customers. We think this is a good sign, that employees eat the same food they serve to us. We can be sure of the sanitation and safety of the food served. Parking is so limited in this restaurant. There are us about 10 spots and if they are full, find a spot on the street or pay the meter. If you're in to stuff yourself with Chinese cuisine, this is the place. This restaurant is not fancy. You go there to eat, stuff yourself, burp, pay and be done with. This is definitely not for a romantic encounter on a wedding anniversary.

“Busy Chinese Food Restaurant”
Reviewed July 3, 2012

This is one of those places that you have to line up to get in...then when you are in there, it is so crowded and the service is only mediocre. Why do people do this there are lots of other good places to eat.

The food was so typical - not good, not bad. Just the run of the mill Chinese Food restaurant. The only thing that could have made it stand out would be for it to have great ambience or service and it has neither.

I didn't enjoy it. Waiters were bumping my table, and the tables are so close that when the people at the next table get up to leave their coat brushes against food on your table. I especially hated the big long cafeteria type table seating down the middle.

“Nothing outstanding about this one”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

Surprisingly, this place is very vegetarian unfriendly (fish sauce on almost every dish), and the staff are generally rude.

“Crowded for a reason”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

The seating is pretty crushed and there isn't any real atmosphere here, but the food is good.
