“Very Good Chinese Food - Good Service - Reasonable”
Reviewed October 12, 2012

I think this was the first restaurant we went to when we moved to this area 13 1/2 years ago. We have been back maybe 50 times. It is not gourmet. It is very good Mandarin style Chinese food served by the same staff for all these years. Cloth table cloths and napkins. Very friendly wait staff. Consistent good food. I recommend their egg foo young, mooshi shrimp, beef with broccoli, and try any of their specialty items. Reasonable prices. Clean.
