This is our go to Chinese restaurant. Great food and great service. Family owned and the staff is the same over the years. It was also my parents favorite restaurant and they have been gone for years. Their prices are fair.

We love this place. It's our go-to in the colder winter months and is consistently delicious prepared with the freshest of ingredients. Items are made to order, and the kitchen is more than willing to "tweak" things to your liking. The décor is charming and...More

Were hungry for Chinese food and this was the nearest place with take-out. Ordered chicken and pork dishes with rice and egg rolls. Food was ready promptly. All tasted pretty much the same and rather bland. Needed considerable soy sauce to produce some flavor. Are...More
