“Freshest and Tastiest!”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This is my most favorite Chinese food restaurant in Modesto. The location accomodates small and large parties with a full bar but the food is what is impressive. The service is fast and the wait staff is very attentive. I've yet to be disappointed with anything on the menu with the Candied Walnut Shrimp, House Beef and Fried Rice being my favorites. Prices are reasonable and portions plentiful. The biggest downside to eating here is I typically order more than I can eat in one sitting. The building used to be the Acapulco restaurant and so the capacity seating is large giving and it does not have any curb appeal giving an illusion that the restaurant is empty. Don't be discouraged by this. The food is the best I've had in a long time.

“One of the best restaurants Modesto has to offer”
Reviewed February 22, 2013

The food is perfectly prepared and the menu is different than the same old Chinese Restarant. Lots of choices, simply yummy. This is a "must try". Whenever I visit Motown I come here. Wish I could cook like this!

“Surprisingly good”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

Fresh-tasting food, flavored sake and good service. The only negative was the view from the dining room of the parking lot and lobby of a hotel, which is not the atmosphere you would expect in a place with such good food.
