“An Old Haunt”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

The Chinese food is decent here, but nothing to write home about. Your regular choices. A shame the owners never update their building or paint things , because the place could really look sharp. A lot of the ambience here is in the décor, but it just hasn't been kept up. Milking a restaurant, and not reinvesting in it, is always a bad choice. :(

“Run down and overpriced.”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Bathroom was filthy. Urinal is actually duct taped together. Never seen that before.
Place is dark and run down, hadn't been there in ten years and it looked like nothing changed. Except it aged ten years.
Menu is over priced. But was hungry.
Waitress was very good and food was served quickly and hot.
Chicken fingers were under cooked. Chicken was cooked but interior of dough was kind of raw.
Rest of food tasted bland. Not much flavor. Now I remember why I hadn't been there in ten years.
Sorry guys. Won't be back for another ten.

“Good Chinese”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

A great Chinese place with good food, Ben the waiter and Henry the Bar Tender are great people, always clean but could use some upgrading with the seating, if you like Karaoke this is the place on Saturday night, always hoping.

“Yummy Chinese food”
Reviewed June 18, 2013 via mobile

I always visit Hong Kong Island when in the area. Their sweet and sour chicken has a great sauce full of fruit. Their pork fried rice and egg rolls are very flavorful as well. The egg foo yong is also loaded up with fillings.

“this place is grose but the drinks are good and strong”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

the title says it all. when you walk in the place is always dark regardless of time of day. the food is greasy and not very enjoyable. shared the pupu platter it was the standard pile of fried stuff. this is a place for strong drinks and in this town that's noteworthy despite its other shortcomings.
