“Expensive, bland, little variety, more soup than entree”
Reviewed June 4, 2008

It seems that white people cooking Chinese food is usually a bad sign. I've had worse Chinese, and I've had worse here in St. Jo, hence the 2-star rating. However, I would not, by any stretch, call this "Good Chinese".
They do not have Orange Chicken or General Tsao's, so I settled for Empress Chicken. I also got an order of Egg Rolls (2). This cost $13.45 before tip!!!!
It arrived within about 15 minutes- quick enough. The serving was quite large, and the egg rolls were good sized. They weren't anything special, but decently edible. I noticed that the styrofoam container with the entree in it was leaking, and it became obvious why when I opened it up. The chicken, broccoli, carrots, bamboo, and onions were swimming in a blood-red sauce. It looked like someone had been bludgeoned in my foam box.
The sauce didn't really have much flavor- not sweet, not spicy, not anything. The chicken seemed to, however. I am sensitive to MSG to the point that I can taste it. The chicken batter must have had a lot of it in there. Blech. Add that to being heavily breaded and soggy from swimming in blood soup....Not great.
On the plus side, they didn't charge me a delivery fee since I was in a hotel. The person who took my order was friendly, as was the delivery guy.
However, I would probably not order from here again.
