This is an old Chinese restaurant in an old Oregon town. Chinese people played a huge role in the early days of Astoria -- they truly did help to chart the history of the town. The food here isn't fancy -- what you'd typically expect to find in a "Szechwan/Cantonese/American" family restaurant. I do think the chef's skill with flavorings is way above average -- and, if you want hot, they will give you HOT!!
Honestly, the prices here can't be beat. I don't know why they still offer an enormous plate of food for $5.95 at lunch. My husband and I eat here regularly, and then we do another stir-fry meal at home with the mountain of leftover rice.
The service is nice, but sometimes there is a considerable language (which is quite charming, in my opinion). I hope they keep this old place going for a lot of years to come!
