We've been here twice now, and we will be back again and again! They have many vegetarian options, which is great for our family - 2 of us eat meat and 2 of us don't. Everything we ordered was great! A particular favorite was the sweet and sour tofu!! Very friendly staff and decent prices.

They gave us a free bowl of edamame. Amazing service. Also got a free bowl of ice cream at the end! I got the broccoli beef it had amazing taste and was just all around amazing. I would go back anytime. Great spot to hang out with friends and the free wifi is a plus.

Driving thru Susanville on our way to Texas. Saw a Chinese restaurant and my wife said stop so I did. Good choice. Food was tasty and there was a lot of it. The only problem for us was that the beautiful flowers around the restaurant caused us somewhat severe nasal congestion. Guess it was worth it though.

Early on we enjoyed this restaurant for the food and service. In recent years they have slipped on all counts. The staff discipline seems to have gone away as kids run around loose, food arrives not hot. And the incidents of stomach complaints by a number of our friends--and us--has increased.

What a treat to find such an exceptionally good Chinese restaurant while traveling far from home. Shrimp and broccoli dish had very fresh ingredients and was very flavorful. Soups were delicious. Service fast and pleasant. Don't miss it when in or near beautiful Susanville.

This is a great place - was open at 3PM on Sunday, too. We tried the potstickers, hot and sour soup and kung pow chicken. Everything was so delicious. The staff were also very nice and the place was very cute and clean. Would definitely go back if ever through the town again!
