The parking lot was fairly full, which we thought was a good sign. We were seated right away. Our waiter was warm and seemed genuinely interested in our having a good dining experience.... More

Have not visited here in a long time - had issues many years ago. We were pleasantly surprised by the amount and taste of the food. Wait staff was attentive and very polite. The dining room was clean and well prepared for the guests. We will now return more often.

On route from NYC to Ocean City in March my wife and I stopped at a small Chinese restaurant where route 1 and 113 part. We had stopped there before while having our car serviced at Hertrich Lincoln and had enjoyed simple old fashioned Chinese food in a clean and simple setting with good food and low prices to boot....

Great place for good Chinese food. Clean, friendly staff. The restaurant has been around for a long time in Milford. Which should speak volumes. Look forward to going back again.

There were 8 of us and we were there to celebrate a birthday, and someone had called ahead and they had 2 Pu Pu Platters (appetizers) waiting for us and when we got ready to order, we ordered 4 of the meals from the menu to be shared by everyone.
