“Best Chinese in Calais”
Reviewed April 24, 2014

Great prices, but more importantly, excellent food. Each item we've tried has it's own flavor palate, unlike the other Chinese restaurant in town.
We love their buffet and the menu is extensive. We make it a point to stop whenever we are in Calais. Friendly staff.

“Fair Price for food”
Reviewed March 9, 2014

A quick lunch on the road. Nothing too special. Was surprised at being yelled at to " take a seat". Not offered a menu so went to buffet. Ok. Lunch and 2 drinks for 20$ ....ok. But prob won't go back.

“Good quality/Reasonable price”
Reviewed December 30, 2013

Fresh food. Great prices. The wait staff is very polite, and it was different than the usual "chinese food experience". It was clear that they actually cared about our dining experience. Very welcoming. Will return!

“Great competition!”
Reviewed November 8, 2013

I found the meals hot and tasty...The portions were substantial and the servers were very pleasant...I will definitely return to try other menu selections...We didn't try the buffet but it looked fine...We were just in moods to order from their very large menu...Prices were excellent...
