Older restaurant, food was good and my spouse said it was really good compared to other Chinese restaurants we have eaten at in the last two years. Two entrees with over the top wonton soup. It is not fine dining but go for the food.

I drive from North Burlington to eat in and take out. I have never had an incorrect order! The food is delicious, fresh and great portions. Fresh items used and it is always good.

This is an old place, very small with little atmosphere. But every time I have been there the staff are especially kind and efficient. The food is always hot and delicious.

My first visit was just a quick pop-in to grab something for myself. I enjoyed the tofu ginger stir-fry so much that I suggested we go back for a family dinner. Big mistake. The atmosphere inside the restaurant was off-putting. The décor is dated and...More
