“Bad Decor, Bad Food, Bad Owner”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2011

I stopped in there last night in order to use the rest room. The owner not only refused but was shouting his refusal loudly. I wouldn't even bother to try the food after that experience. I can see why that dump was empty when I was there.

Mediocre Chinese food. Authenticity of some of dishes are dubious. Avoid the lemon chicken! It's deep fried chicken with lemon-flavored Jell-O powder.

“Not too bad Chinese in the neighborhood.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 27, 2007

Yum, I just ordered vegetable lo mein, and peking ravolis, and can't wait to pick it up. I'd go to Chinatown if I had the time to look for parking, but since this is in the neighborhood it is much easier. The food here is more upscale than your regular delivery place, and a little bit more expensive. I wish the guys at the desk were a little friendlier, afterall, they should know me by now!
