“Typical Chinese Take-out Restaurant”
Reviewed May 1, 2014

In a shopping center, the restaurant has an extensive menu for take-outs, but there are tables where customers can sit and eat. We were there around 6:45 p.m., and only customers who ate in. There were several customers (seemingly regulars) who came for their orders. There was also a guy who delivered orders. Through the opened counter, one can see their entire kitchen, apparently ran by the husband and wife, a young woman their daughter helped out with orders, and a young boy, the son played outside of the restaurant. They are Cantonese, as I asked them. Menu items are in pint or quart size. We ordered spring rolls which were reasonably tasty, not greasy. Fried duck was on top of some vegetables was not bad. All in all, it is a value restaurant. They provided paper plates, plastic ware if eat in. Their disposable chopsticks were the best I have seen at any restaurant of this sort. Very sturdy and solid, good size round chopsticks and clean finished, no splinters like others.

“surprisingly bad”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Ordered because they deliver and the competition doesnt,,,my stupid mistake,,this place sucks. Actually made the same mistake twice, ordered a few nights again and everything was ok i thought,not great but ok, but i agree with other reviewer that it had a bad aftertaste and then I got a headache after,prob from msg,,,,got the munchies and noone else delivers so i ordered again and the food came cold, some burnt,and was so bad it ended up in the trash. this splace has been in business a long time, i am amazed.
