We ordered chinese food. Which was mostly celery and sprouts. Won ton soup had soured old won tons. chow mein was in a gelatinous goup mostly made up of corn starch. I don't believe I have EVER had such awful chinese food.

This is a landmark place in Redding for many years. However the place had a very bad sewer like smell that pretty much ruined our meal. I would hope that this was an unusual occurrence. The place was in need of a good cleaning as...More

We had the chinese food for 2 which was average. We didn't go back although we did see the place packed a couple of times when driving by so maybe it was our choice of food. It's very convenient to the Travel lodge if you...More

This restaurant apparently is an institution in Redding, it is run by the same family in the third generation. I must say we found the food bland and uninspired, and the decor is faded and boring.

After reading all the reviews I had really looked forward to eating here...not only was it not special..it was not even what I'd call "alright".

The servings are huge, at least the dinner for 2 that we ordered. Unless you have a ravenous hunger, I would order a regular meal and split it if you are a couple. Moderate price. I would eat there again

I ate there once and will never go back again. I saw roaches climbing on the wall. The staff can hardly speak English. Very dirty place, when I was there.
