Good food, very busy with large number of Asian customers, a good sign for an Asian restaurant. The variety and quality of food was good. We had a party of 18 so we were in a room off to the side. The service was good, but abrupt, not surprised. Once we ordered, food came rather quickly, so I believe much... More

The fish was crispy, the meat succulent, the... More

Food was great no complaints at all maybe order take out . But I had to wave my arms like a psycho to get a refill. It was for my birthday and waiter was no friendly at all , no eye contact . I won't have a party there again .

Quick service and delicious! You'll never go wrong on any of their food. LUNCH menu is the best deal. Don't forget to ask for the chili sauce, it's free but they don't just serve it

Sam Woo restaurant is a popular Chinese restaurant in the area. Delicious food. Large serving. Quick service. We love to dine there very late at night. One of the few restaurants in the area that closes late.

Not only was the food fabulous but it was heartening to see families enjoying it together. There are several round tables specifically set up for that purpose. Of course, there are also other configurations to accommodate other clients. There was a lobster special for $15 with large chunks of lobster on a bed of noodles that was good for two... More

Our go to place for Peking Duck in the area. Cooked to perfection. You have you wrap the bao (bun) around the crispy warm and tender tasty roasted duck. It's a must with the shredded green onion and sauce. Mouth-watering goodness.
