“Still our favorite”
Reviewed May 30, 2012

We've been eating here about once a month ( sometimes more) for about six years -- not something we've ever done with any other restaurant. The food is very good --- they have the best hot and sour soup, which is loaded with vegetables and shrimp. We also like the Sweet and Sour Fish, Mongolian Lamb, Szechwan Prawns, and Moo Shu. Everything we've ever eaten here is excellent. Service is consistenly good, and it's a very pleasant place to be. There is easy parking on the street, and occasionally when it's been very busy, there's a lot in back with more than adequate parking. Prices are very reasonale.

The food is not spectacular but always good and the atmosphere is very warm and inviting unlike most Chinese restaurants.

“Great food at reasonable prices”
Reviewed July 5, 2010

My husband and I have eaten here more than 30 times over the past few years, so we obviouly love it! The hot and sour soup is excellent, as is the Mongolian lamb, sweet and sour fish, all the mu shu dishes, chicken with cashews, and all the shrimp dishes. We've brought several groups of friends here, and they enjoy it as well. Often my husband and I order soup and one entree to split between the two of us. It's more than enough food, and the toltal cost is less than $25. Service is friendly and attentive, and it's alsys easy to park on the street.
