The food was quick as they scoop it up from a buffet. It leaves much to be desired. We ate there once and do not plan to go back again. The fast food chains are a better option for flavor and selection.

We had lunch here & everyone liked their food. Plenty of options to choose from. I recomment the Bento. Prices were reasonable too.

The staff here was quite rude and unfriendly. They struggled with speaking English and didn't know what you were ordering or saying. The food wasn't anything that made up for the terrible service. It was not an enjoyable experience and we would never go back or recommend it to anyone.

Under $5 for standard Chinese food.

My gut instinct tells me I don't want to know how filthy the kitchen might be.

A lot of locals hang out here. Too dirty inside with harsh lighting to stay and eat.

Staff knows very little english or pretend to and not very customer service oriented. They just want you to order pay and get the heck out. They wont answer any questions like, can i get a packet of hot mustard or duck sauce. They have a hot food bar to choose from which is a great deal 3 entrees for $7.75 plus rice and lomein. They call it chow mein but it is lomein. It looks like a hole in the wall from the outside and it pretty much is, has tables inside. Popular locals place becuase of the portions and price. They have made to order plates as well. Set up just like L &L but a little cheaper.
