Have heard some many wonderful things about this place and we were VERY disappointed. I ordered a hot & spicy dish. The waitress told me it was hot & spicy & I told her that is what I wanted. The meal comes, it is not even close to being hot or spicy. In fact, it had very little sauce on... More

Best Chinese food in the area. Fresh, authentic & made to order. Nothing is pre made or reheated. Very small place with about 7 tables. We've only done take out. When I went in for the first visit, the owner gave me a print out of the history of the chef. Very cool. Try this place out. I don't think... More

Small restaurant with a big story and good food. Take time to read the history on this chef. Food is excellent and sauces are unique and savory. Can eat in on some days but mostly takeout.

I drove by Rochambeau Mall many times never knowing there was this little jewel of a restaurant tucked in the back corner until an acquaintance recommended it. It has become my go to Chinese restaurant in the area. Everything is cooked to order and I’ve enjoyed every single dish I’ve tried. I use them mostly for take-out and they do... More

Excellent Chinese food for take out and eat in during the week only. Friday and Saturday take out only. A little more expensive then your average Chinese food restaurant, but this place is one of the best around.

After reading reviews , we decided to order takeout from here thinking we would get some great food. The food was terrible. The fried dumpling were burnt on the bottom and the filling had an odd taste. The crab Rangoon was well done to the point it was dry. Sweet and sour chicken was also dry. The egg rolls ordered...

Excellent food, as good a chinese restaurant as I can ever remember using. As mentioned, its all prepared fresh so involves a bit of a wait, but there is a bar next door if you get impatient!

We have been huge fans of this place for decades. Once we tried the food, it forever altered our standard for what constitutes great Chinese food. Our now married children eagerly come from out of town to enjoy a meal there when a craving sets in. As other reviewers have said, it is a small couple-run business at the end... More
