I went here on Feb 3rd and got very well done egg rolls which they finally took off after my multiple counts. The orange beef was doing with such sauce that was mediocre at best and the meat was also very well done but tolerable. The free Ryde was decent but not the best I've ever had and smelled of...

We eat here with friends at least once a week. The service is awesome and I don't even express in words how good the food is. I don't usually experience with a lot of different dinners and I have tried a lot of them. However, my favorite is the sesame chicken (I nicknamed it Crack Chicken) it's very additive

We went there for the first time in several years because our 9 year old granddaughter did really good in school and she picked the restaurant. The portions were large but the quality was poor at best. I do not recommend this restaurant.

I came here for dinner for my first time with family members. I had the Orange beef which came with rice. Nothing fancy, but good. My wife had the chicken Lo Mein. The portions were bigger than we had expected. I feel the entrees are priced appropriately. I would come back.

Nicely varied menu with the expected standards and a few surprises. Food is consistently good, service is outstanding. Good value for the money. Great neighborhood spot for regular dining.

Stopped here for dinner while driving through in Phoenix. A nice surprise! I found the food to be much better than expected! A large selection offered on the menu. We had two of the dinner specials which offers more items for a couple of dollars more than standard dinner offerings. The food was hot, fresh and tasty. The vegies were... More

We have been going here for years and it never disappoints. I hate noisy restaurants and this place is a delight - you can actually talk to your fellow diners without shouting. The food is wonderful with very generous portions. We always take home enough for another meal. I love the lemon chicken and my husband always gets the house... More
