Restaurant details
Reviewed December 11, 2012

We are always greeted as part of the family by the owners. The service is great, the food is great, the ambience is nothing special, but there is a warm feel to the open dining room which has as much to do with the friendly owners as anything.

While not the dim sum style popular in Chinatown, this restaurant represents the best of standard suburban Chinese.

Try the pot stickers, a specialty - home made, not frozen. Hot sour is the best of the soups. The shrimp dishes feature fresh large ones. Mu shu, mongolian beef, lemon chicken, all very tasty.

The place is run by two witty and talkative brothers, their wives and parents. If you catch them at a rare slow moment, be prepared to share a but of humor and philosophy if the spirit moves you. You will definitely want to come back, and it only gets better.

We love this place.

I've been going to this restaurant for years and have never been disappointed. You are greeted at the door with a friendly smile and shown to your table. The food arrives promptly and is quite tasty. Pot Sticker are excellent as is their Hot & Sour soup. Lunch specials make this an affordable place to go to on a regular lunch basis.

I echo the Sept., 2011 reviewer. The food is standard chop suey but it is fresh and hot and delicious and inexpensive, served quickly and with a smile. Comfortable and clean dining room, off street parking, and carryout service. Open Mondays, which many other places are not.

Good food, terrific service. The owner is also the waiter (I think he is the owner, which if he's not he cares as much as if he were) and is also delightful. Food is good, standard chinese fare -- Not too many surprises, but just a place we really like to go because it's a nice experience.
