It is nice to get out and eat some good quality oriental food every so often. We enjoy the owner as we have known her for a few years, and enjoy the time to catch up on how things are going in her family. The service is great and prompt, always with a smile and a good word for each... More

This is one of my favorite Chinese restaurants in central Illinois. If I lived closer, I would be a regular customer. I happened to be in the area and made it a must for me to have lunch there.

The decor was like walking into an actual Japanese Restaurant. It is nice to sit down a complete menu and not a buffet atmosphere. It was a great meal at a realistic price!

Good asian types of food or different origins... Try anything! Self-serve seating and menu taking. Ring a buzzer if they didn't see you! There seems to be one of takes orders, serves, takes $ etc. Give it a try. Traditional Oriental decor, with lots of stuff.

You'll feel like you are in an expensive restaurant in Chicago when you dine here. The chef creates cut vegetable flowers to garnish the plate and everything is made fresh. There are plenty of tables for large gatherings to small, romantic meals. The fried rice, egg drop soup (with fried wontons!!), and Peking Duck is amazing **definitely call ahead to... More

This trip I stayed in a different place and tried Hunan downtown. Very glad I did, it was excellent. Very large and quiet place on a Monday night. Service was fast. A little odd start. Sign says take a menu and find a seat. Self serve seating. The egg drop soup was good with the crunch wontons. Then the Garlic... More
