“Average Chinese food”
Reviewed July 29, 2010

People coming from big West Coast cities won't be wowed by the food here, assuming my meal was representative. I had hot and sour soup and kung pao chicken. Both were satisfactory but neither was memorable. The chicken was served in a portion so enormous that two people could stuff themselves on it. It was somewhat heavy and cloying, but not bad. The hot and sour soup was light on my favorite ingredients (I'm not sure it had any cloud ears) but again quite tolerable. The white rice didn't have quite the right consistency but it got close. The service was attentive and the prices exceedingly reasonable.

“For $8-$12 you can choose a good dinner...”
Reviewed July 4, 2010

For $8-$12 you can choose a good dinner off a large menu & have some to take home. Try the fried cream cheese won-ton--delicious! Beer & wine available. Definitely worth a visit.

“Decent food, good value”
Reviewed June 21, 2010

This restaurant was recommended by the staff at the hotel. Our food was good enough after a long day in the car-- nothing to write home about, but decent. Good portion size and a good value. Service was very prompt.

“Unexpected surprise”
Reviewed October 14, 2009

Really excellent authentic Chinese food. Hot and Sour Soup was superb. Enjoyed everything. Would never have thought we would find this kind of good Chinese food in Ely, of all places! Highly recommend it.
