What a wonderful find in Cranberry, a place we pass through often during trips from Maryland to our hometown in western Pennsylvania. For people with gluten free needs, like my wife, this is a five-star choice with an excellent, extensive and creative GF menu. We shared the lobster dumplings, the only disappointment. The GF rice-wrappers are very gluey and extremely pricy. The filling tasted good, though. I chose GF also and had the extraordinary Spicy Cantonese Noodle. It was so fresh and we loved the light touch with spicing and flavoring, rather than the heavy saucing you find at lesser quality restaurants and even PF Changs. My wife went with the Szechuan Prawns. These WERE "saucier," but it wasn't gooped up with corn syrup and it tasted great. The rich egg-drop soup was good too. The service was very friendly and efficient. Jimmy Wan's is expensive. But it's a special place, right at the confluence of I-79, I-279 and the Turnpike. Next time, we're going to order from the road and swoop in and out.

I never complain. I work in the service industry over 30 yrs. Our waiter was rude and has no idea how to work with people. He was more concerned with how his hair looked. My food was over cooked and hard. I could hardly chew it.

This place stands up to its rating! My copilot & I decided to try it based on previous reviews - and it was very near where we stayed in this trip. Awesome service - even better selection of GREAT craft beers - totally unexpected !! Appetizers were superb - meal was spectacular. Chilean Sea Bass was terrific.

WE went there several days ago with my wife, daughter, son in law and grand child. They were very excited about the restaurant. It is very upscale looking with a nice bar. That said, the food, we had twice cooked pork, a couple of chicken dishes, Shangai dumplings and hot and sour soup. The food itself was well prepared and served nicely though as these were supposed to be sichuan dishes I expected it to be spicy. My wife and I eat very spicy sichuan food at home in ATL. This was probably the blandest food I've eaten. I asked for a side of chili oil. The server would be gone for long periods of time and was slightly attentive. He could not be found and I had to ask a mgr for the chili oil and another server to find our server to bring over the bill. All in all it's an average tasting chinese restaurant with pretension.

Very good food, it's been difficult to find decent Chinese food around here - love the General Tso's but rather pricey...We normally do take-out, but have eaten in the restaurant and the atmosphere is very nice!
