Convenient to order online. Food is always ready very fast and is fresh. We have been getting take out here for years and it is always consistently good. Potstickers and Chicken Fried Rice are very good. I like the cream cheese wontons but sometimes they are a bit greasy.

Good food, prepared quickly. Large menu to choose items from. Ordered take-out on several occasions and have always been pleased with prep time and quality of food. They offer discount cards for return customers to build loyalty.

I've eaten here (well this location and the old one) since the 80's. The food is just as fabulous as it was then. "Try it, you'll like it, Mikey"

If you want a go to place for really good wontons, eggrolls, and chicken wings in Apple Valley this is your place. I always order just the house appetizer. You get 4 wings, 2 eggrolls, and 4 wontons for around $8. I have ordered other items like LoMein but it was just okay.

Stopped in on a Sunday evening...No other customers there, which was a little scary, but the food & service were good ! Exactly what we expected from a little hometown Chinese restaurant.... Food was good and prices were cheap!

We ate here with our two children (3 and 5 years) all enjoyed the food. We had sesame chicken, chicken lo mien, and beef and broccoli. The food and service were good. The only complaint we have is that the bathroom looked like it had not been cleaned in a while.

We just finished our take out order from this restaurant. It's completely on the other side of town but worth the trip if it would be good. Whatever the exact opposite of good is I would use it and use it squared. Egg rolls, cabbage sauerkraut wrapped in egg roll wraps, not a speck of protein to be seen. Spring... More
