I have eaten there twice in the past week. It is okay, but far from spectacular. I ordered a seafood dish and the vegetables were the star of the dish. The decor could use some professional designer help.

EXCELLENT food, GOOD PRICES, FRIENDLY service. Well, kept secret. Hidden behind the hotel (Best Western?) and next to the McDonald's parking lot. No ambience. Very bare bones. We take out. Delicious Chinese food. Best I've tasted in this area.
