“Food is really excellent and with improved service”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

I previously reviewed this establishment in July and those comments are still applicable, but there have been two changes. First, the has been an improvement in the service. The staff seems to be genuinely friendlier and I always believe that attitude is a reflection of management.
Second, they have made some subtle changes to some of my favorite dishes. That kind of improvement in an already successful restaurant is indicates a continuing desire to be better. I repeat my previous recommendation. Go and enjoy!

“Very good food in a nice environment”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

We have eaten at this restaurant several times in the last few months. The experiences have all been the same. Very good to excellent Americanized Chinese food in a nice, clean environment.
Restaurant is usually busy, but usually there is no need for reservations. Service tends to be on the slow side, so keep that in mind if you are in a hurry. Menu is extensive and there will something for all tastes. Go and enjoy!

“Friendly, Tasty and Fresh!”
Reviewed January 18, 2012

We've eaten here a couple of times in the last few months and look forward to going back. The prices are good, portions are large, tea is great and we always have leftovers for the next day.
