This a place I'd do take-out rather than dining there. The atmosphere is pretty bare bones, and the set-up is really for folks to take food out. The food is pretty tasty and fresh. The crab rangoons are little odd for my taste. I've ordered with folks who can read the Chinese language menu behind the cashier - recommended if you're able. Either way, you'll stuff yourself with yummy food without breaking the bank.

The menu provides pretty much standard Chinese fare.
The name though says it all--"Fresh", as in the ingredients.

Mushrooms, onions, scallions and carrots all have a fresh taste and add great flavor.
Lo Meins, Pork fried rice (light on pork, but rich in flavor), sesame chicken (massive portion) are our standard choices. Crab Rangoon small portion is actually quite large and boneless spare ribs are rich in flavor and not too fatty. Fried wontons are also good--not greasy.

Although there are about a 10 tables,this restaurant is best suited for take out.
If you eat in (as I do on occasion), there may or may not be table service, you'll get styrofoam plates & plastic utensils and will bus your own table. Some food is served on plastic plates and some in take out containers. The decor is very old and dingy, but it is clean!
If you eat in, there is a large urn of hot tea (self service), and occasionally, including tonight, will be offered complimentary Hot & Sour soup.

Only downside, one woman who works the front is consistently nasty but that doesn't affect food quality, portion sizes and real good value.

The online menu did not include numbers so the lady in the resturant was unable to understand what we wanted. We were looking to do take out so we just indicated it was not worth the effort and did not order.

Have tried em all. This is the best in town, And I am a chinese food snob who regularly goes into chinatown for lunch and dim sum. And they deliver in about a half hour for a $1. No brainer

I like their food, is always fresh and portions are large. I would not dine in here, no atmosphere, use it for take out. They deliver also.
