My wife and I stopped here on a recruiting trip to Utah State for my son. The food was edible, but extremely bland. I know why though; everyone sitting around us were small town senior citizens. I got Tiny Spicy Chicken, which while pretty fresh, was about as spicy as ketchup. My wife got the Three-Spicy something. Somewhat fresh but NOT spicy. The fried-rice was fresh but it was like something my white, elderly Grandma would make for fried rice. I did like the hot and sour soup which had more spice then anything else, with just a hint of sweetness.

The place isn't horrible, the prices were very good and the ambiance was fine. The waitress was great. Just not the most tasty Chinese food I have had. And I am from Salt lake!

I don't want to be insulting but it's a little funny to read some reviews from whoever claiming they like Chinese food but only order something like tiny spicy chicken. I know we are in America, but please stop rating a Chinese restaurant only by the taste/quality of tiny spicy chicken or sweet & sour soup. They are American Chinese food, not Chinese food.

As a Chinese student, this restaurant is the best Chinese restaurant in Logan. Even you expand the range to Utah/Idaho, this is still on of the best places to enjoy the authentic Chinese food. Their "Hong Shao Pork", "Crispy Duck", "Salty Pepper Pork/Chicken/Squid" and some other dishes from a "secret Chinese food menu" are something really from China.

What makes it a better place, is that the restaurant keeps developing their options. The "Luna Eggplant", "Happy Formosa" and "Lamb Hot Pot" have become my new favorite.

Anyway if you are a Chinese, or you enjoy the real Chinese food, you will not be disappointed by the food here.

If you are going to Formosa, get the tiny spicy chicken. It is fantastic. Their food is always good, and their service is great as well!
