This must a local favorite after reading the reviews however I wasn't thoroughly impressed. Not sure about a parking lot or anything because we walked here. I came here for lunch. Walking in I found the carpet to be stained and old. The restaurant definitely...More

This restaurant has been a standby for us -- for lunch specials and the occasional takeout dinner. The staff is wonderful. Unfortunately, our recent experiences have been disappointing, in the quality of the food and the overall value. New chef, perhaps?

LOVED the scallion pancakes!!! SO GOOD. All the food here was great! What I liked the most, it was greasy, which is a big problem with lots of chinese food. The crab rangoon were perfectly crisp. We ordered the chicken wings well done, but they...More
