Because I usually eat here with a large number of people, we usually have the banquet room. It is quiet in there and we are able to conduct business. We always have a buffet. The food is okay-good. I've had a few items that have not been very tasty; tofu and egg rolls. It's fine for our large group, but... More

Came here several times with large groups and the service was just as good as it was for a table of 4. If you have to bring out of town guests to a chinese restaurant, this is the one. Big menu, food is good, service is on par.

Over-priced Chinese restaurant with caucasian waitresses - now that could be the reason for the price :-). Oh well..food is not for sharing, i.e., portions are small. It's not your familiar Chinese family restaurant.

Used TA to locate a nice restaurant with an intriguing menu. When we first walked in we were both very impressed with the layout. Seating is arranged so that you're not really near anyone. The menu was so varied that it took awhile to decide. The lettuce wraps were wonderful and made right at the table! The won ton soup... More

This restaurant surpassed the great ratings on this site. The decor was wonderful, the bar served drinks that were not watered down. The food was amazing. We had appetizers of Lobster and Shrimp Dumplings, words cannot describe how good these were. Also had Chicken lettuce wraps which are a little messy to eat but worth it with every bite. For...

Stopped in for carryout. The woman at the hostess desk was super friendly, and she recommended the Shrimp and Lobster Pot Stickers when I asked about appetizers. They were delicious! I ate the order of 4 myself, and they were very filling. I also ordered the Combination Seafood Bird's Nest, and I really enjoyed that, too. The portion was large,... More
