The lunch portion was good but the flavoring was very blah. Had General Tso's Chicken and asked for medium spice. It came out kind of sweet. The fried rice was also very blah. The offer canned soft drinks rather than refillable cups.

Buffet is like $8 for lunch. Well worth it. Skip the greasy egg drop soup though. Teriyaki wings are killer, everything is fresh. Not many entrees but what do you expect from a place that sits 20?

Des Moines native and this is one of the best chinese restaurants I have found in town. Good variety and reasonable prices. Best for take out since atmosphere is pretty casual.

We picked up the hot & spicy pork to take back to the hotel. We're not big eaters, but there was enough food for 2 from this single dish, with rice included. The food was decent, but not exceptional. The restaurant is in a non-descript...More

The staff was nice and food was served quickly, but seemed to be reheated factory food. Just dry pieces of fried breading (maybe some chicken in there somewhere). The Mongolian beef was average at best and the soup so thick it could not be finished....More
