“Never disappoints!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2012

This is my favorite Chinese restaurant. Everything is fresh and fast. It's been in business for more than ten years and family run. It's mostly a take out place, although they do have a few tables. It's in a small strip mall (you'll see the CVS and Dunkin' Donuts before you spot the restaurant), and the view out the full length windows is a parking lot. Instead of the exterior view, watch the cooks do what they do best. The kitchen is open, with fryers, flattops and ovens on the left and food prep on the right. Last night I watched two cooks make dumplings from scratch. One cut circles from fresh dough and patted them flat and the other expertly filled and folded the dumplings.

Our favorites include General Tso's shrimp, teriyaki beef (incredibly tender), hot and sour soup, shrimp toast, sweet and sour anything, fried dumplings, house fried shrimp (with meat and shrimp). Huge variety of food, good size portions, and everything is cooked perfectly. Even the fried food is never greasy. There may be a small wait during busy times, so call ahead with your order (203 468-2066). They also offer combination plates for lunch which are a great value. It you shop at Big Y in North Branford, take a look at the back of your receipt - currently Shong Fa Jaing has coupons printed on the back.
