I just moved into town and this was the only Chinese place that delivered. My pu-pu for two came with these strange pork pucks with pink dye on the outside that were grey and dry ( I didn't actually eat them but I could tell they were dry just by looking at them) Everything else was your typical frozen and...

Fantastic food and service. Large portions but, they only give you less than what you had leftover on the table. Where did my food go. Suggest asking to box yourself.

I come here with my best friend because it is her favorite place to have Chinese food. She knows everyone by name and even the owner comes out to talk to the patrons. The food is always delicious!

Quaint business, atmosphere is really nice!! Food is real good and the staff makes you feel at home. This restaurant is more of an authentic Chinese taste & feel then any other I've been in. It's a nice experience.

I have mixed feelings about this place. I usually eat in the bar. The food is good, the portions are average, and the prices are okay. The drinks are strong, as they usually are at most Chinese restaurants. Service is friendly if slow at times. There are big windows looking out onto Main Street, which is nice. It's a cozy... More

This is definitely the BEST Chinese restaurant in the area and the best we have ever had anywhere in our travels.. Every item is made from scratch....best fried rice ever....home made wontons and rangoons....always hot and fresh....can't say enough about the quality of the food. Stella is a peach and her waitstaff is very excellent. A great place!

GLASS FOUND IN FOOD & STAFF EXTREMELY UNPROFESSIONAL! Ordered $45 worth of food tonight for dinner which my family never got to enjoy thanks to a clear 1/4" piece of glass found in the food. Was eating with my wife and 3 yr old when I got cut inside my mouth and promptly spit out a piece of broccoli along... More

This is an old-fashioned Chinese restaurant on the first floor of a house. It is not fancy; Tiki-Chic atmosphere. You will find traditional American Chinese like lobster sauce, chop suey and Hawaiian wedding. Exotic drinks will be made right in front of you, to order, and some are served in exotic glassware, like they did in the 60s and 70s.... More

We went there with a large group after a concert at the Opera House. We arrived late and stayed long after close with no complaints. Our group ordered everything from full meals to just tea and that was fine as were individual checks. The wait staff was friendly and efficient! Amazing how they got the food out so quickly and...
