Food like that can only make you sick: cheap oils which they use over and over again turn the stomach up. Since the restaurant is next to a retirement community the patrons like to go there due to its proximity. Some have no idea what a good Asian cuisine tastes like. The owner has been getting away with delivering the poor quality sub standard meals for years. It is understandable that the owner is running a business and has to make money but the product he delivers is highly inadequate. Whoever is singing accolades to this place does not understand quality.

This is a really good Chinese restaurant if you avoid the breaded and deep fried foods. Soups are good, especially hot and sour, which is not too dark from overdoing the soy sauce as in so many places. The fish dishes are wonderful, as is seafood generally. We love their mixed vegetable dish, which they make for us with scallops and black bean sauce. Kung Pao is as good as I've had it. The restaurant is often filled with parties of Asian people which is a good recommendation. Jean is a wonderful server and will make sure you get exactly what you want.

We're visiting in the area and Long River Restaurant was recommended to us. We had dinner. They had an early bird special that ended at 6:00. Various early bird dinners were $9.95 to $10.75. We each got tea, egg rolls, soup, rice and one entree. I ordered sweet and sour pork and my wife beef and vegetables. Both were very good with light tasty sauces. The pork was VERY lightly breaded, which I liked. The pork and the beef were both tender. Dinner was followed by four orange quarters and fortune cookies. The service was attentive and fast. The tables had white table cloths and the restaurant was very clean. If we are in the mood for Chinese food again while we're here, we will definitely eat here again.
