We went for lunch at 1250 pm and there was like 7 empty trays, the rest was cold and old. We didn't even get to really eat and the guy at the front desk who was also our server was very unprofessional and rude. I do not recommend going here.

Still the best salt and pepper squid ever, and love how they still do their brocolli..slichgtly crisp and green, not soggy like so many other... More

Finally open again but in a new location! Just as good as before, location is a little smaller but the food is still very good. Ginger beef is probably the best I've ever had, salt and pepper squid amazing too! They don't have a lot of items but the items they do offer they do very well! Happy to see... More

I haven't had good chinese food since the fire. I noticed a tiny little sign on 16th Ave saying they are opened at #3 - 5012 16 Ave NW right by the KFC in Montgomery. The lights are too bright for dining (I'm sure it's just a little quirk that has to be worked out), but the food and the... More

Unfortunately, due to a major fire this and several other businesses in the strip mall have been totally destroyed. There is no possibility of the restaurant being rebuilt at this location.

The food we ordered off the menu was hot and fresh, though a bit oily for my taste. The food ordered from the menu was served with a friendly smile. The buffet food some of us ordered was average food for average pricing. The selection was Ok.

Not very impressed with this restaurant at all. The food was average-poor and quite expensive, the buffet was not special and really not that wide an array of dishes. I found it quite greasy and unappetizing and the place is one I will not return to. Poor.

I have enjoyed the buffet at this place for many years. I do not go as often as I used to when I worked nearby however it still has a great buffet. The food is what I call clean, not over cooked and mushy like some buffets and not just full of fried foods. The broccoli is nice and green... More
