nothing fancy, very similar to other Chinese takeout places I've been to. Reasonably priced; kids enjoyed the food; dining area was clean.

I personally stopped frequenting this establishment some time ago, however today someone was buying and wanted to get chinese, so either they buy and choose or I didn't get a meal. Unfortunately, they reminded me WHY I haven't been there in years; First, the poor sanitary conditions of the kitchen and tiny dining area, second, the inattention to detail and poor customer service...they didn't even come close to getting my order right (small children can tell the differencs between chicken and beef...which they seemingly could not), and third, what food I finally got was bland at best with not only no spice as advertised, but flavorless and a gross texture as if had been around for some time. Oh, and to get all this, it cost more for 1 meal than a large pizza would have cost. So, if you have no sense of taste, don't care about cleanliness or value and like poor customer service, by all means try this slop trough. I'm never coming back even if I never had to pay.

So, I don't know what would make anyone who doesn't speak Chinese think that they know drama when they can't understand it. I speak Chinese, and they're just like any other restaurant that, when busy, is constantly talking to each other. Just because you don't like the tone of a tonal language doesn't mean it's hostile. That's so ignorant. The place tastes great, cost isn't McDonalds, but also not expensive. For $7, a combo is a great thing.

Super fast food, marginally flavorful. You get large portions, and cost is average. Not too friendly. Allot of hostile drama in another language behind the counter, pretty funny show while you wait for your order.
