“I'm a "regular" and it never disappoints!”
Reviewed July 21, 2013

You know this place is the real deal by the proportion of Chinese diners you see there every time. The staff is always friendly and attentive, and the big booths and big round tables are nice when you have a larger group. As for the food, I can't say I've sampled a wide variety (because I got hooked on a few things from the outset), but I've gone their with various friends on several occasions and they have enjoyed their dishes too. My favorites are the Szechuan green beans (appetizer) and the homestyle tofu, which comes in a homemade sauce that includes black beans, along with bok choi and other vegetables. Outstanding flavor in that sauce! The other nice thing is that even on a Saturday night, you can usually get a table because the restaurant is so large. (See all the great reviews on Yelp too!) Highly recommended!

“Fraudsters”
Reviewed May 7, 2013

Charged me for something on take out they didn't have and refused to adjust.

As a result of the confusion (or possibly not), food was inedible when I finally arrived home.

They were unwilling to refund the money owed to us, and a dispute has been started with the credit card issuer.

Given the amount of the order, also considering law enforcement action against this establishment.

All they had to do was a simple refund/adjustment, wow!

In all my dining experiences all over the world, never ever experienced anything so terrible.

“Good food, good atmosphere, and good value”
Reviewed February 28, 2013

This is an older “cousin” to the restaurant in Plymouth, MN. The physical setting is elegant; service is quite good, the food excellent, and fairly reasonable prices. We have been in many times, in small and large groups, and had a variety of dishes. There are two menus. One is for the usual Chinese fare. The other is their Szechuan menu populated with many unusual items (animal protein parts) that are for the “home grown” tastes and can be made very spicy. Perhaps, that is why there are many Asian students and young families dining. On Saturday evenings, it is usually packed. When you go, you will enjoy good food, good atmosphere, and good value.
