“Tricked!!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 10, 2014 via mobile

I read the reviews here and went on way home to pick up food. First off its cold in the waiting area but what else is new with Chinese takeout. I don't know how the cooks even see what they are cooking because there is like one light on in the back. I got home and my order was wrong. The general tao's chicken was chewy like gum, the wonton soup was watery no flavor ( my son's words ) the chicken egg foo young should have been named onion egg foo burned...wheres the chicken???
The pork fried rice was acceptable, thank god I paid extra for the almond cookies (now less almonds btw) as those and the fortune cookies were the best part of the meal. I threw all left over food away as it was horrible the first time so the second reheat could prove fatal. Im mad I blew $25.00 but also sad that its actually possible to make bad Chinese food. I did not think it was possible. Its possible. Another review said they get sick every third time they go. Would like to ask how many times they have been sick. I did not get sick (yet) but its only been 10 minutes since I ate. I will let you know. Even our worst Chinese restaurant in my town is 3 levels above what I just threw away.
Yuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuurrrrrp.... Uh oh ;(

“The real deal.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012 via mobile

This restaurant has very very good food. The atmosphere is definitely very low. But you'll definitely enjoy the dishes here.

“Great take out, ready in a flash.”

Many choices, quick, simple and good. No reason to stay, but it is ready very fast so no problem. Pretty standard Chinese take out menu. No surprises.
