We had dinner there once. It was a very big restaurant and very empty. The food was average. We ordered noodles, spicy beef and fish.

Although their service and atmosphere is not great but hey it's Chinese! Taste was GREAT! They served the dish very prompt. I recommend this place for casual use, not for corporate as they cater tour group and can be VERY noisy.
