I want to give this place a really good review...but their service & food quality just isn't consistent. Its very hit or miss when I go- & I've been coming here for about 10 years. But even with their mistakes- its still one of the better chinese restaurants in austin.

“Excellent Chinese Food, Good Prices, Big Portions”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2009

Most of the time I have people come in from out of town I take them here. You can sit at a round table and have everyone order family style and the portions are so big that everyone will get some of everyone else's without having to worry about it. I recommend their traditional dishes like General Tso, Orange Chicken, and Mongolian Beef. If you are ordering alone, the Sizzling Beef plate is really good too.

This place was awful. Everything was very tasteless. I dragged my poor friend here because a foodie friend gave it a glowing recommendation and we both thought it was awful. I had the pork BBQ and she had noodles with pork BBQ. Maybe if you're looking for authentic, but not for my tastes.
