We will eat here sometimes before a movie. The restaurant is across the street from the Palace theater. Not the best Chinese food I have ever eaten, but quick and consistent. They are hard working and I always feel I have gotten a decent meal. You order at the counter so do not expect great table service. My only compliant... More

I popped into China City for a quick lunch. It's your typical Chinese fast food-like place. It's very casual and has a pretty view. Typically I'd get take-out from a place like this. There is zero ambiance. I had one of the chicken lunch specials, which cost $8.50. I liked that it wasn't oily/greasy. For food at this price point,... More

We were looking for some place different to eat this time, and after looking at menus up and down the strip, I decided on this place (and my wife was ok with it). Buy, the food was great, but the view was even better. Floor to ceiling and wall to wall windows overlooking mirror lake, it doesn't get much better... More

I ordered off the nutrition section, spicy broccoli in garlic sauce. And, asked for them to add bean curd and mushrooms which they did. I tasted the creation and the flavor was good, but it wasn't spicy. Secondly, there were some parts of the dish that were cold, and thirdly, I removed all of the baby corn because it was... More

The place is nice right besides lake Mirror, people are friendly, but the food is not so good. Average Chinese and a bit greasy, particularly the Crab Rangoons.

Had our Dinner after my grandson got tired at the Beach. It is good family place to sit and have meals. The food was freshly made and was good quality and quantity. We enjoyed the food. the bill was very reasonable.

This place is great for Chinese take out, the Vegetable Mei Fun is by far one of their best dishes. Though the Tofu General Tso wasn't too bad either, I prefer it to be spicy but I added my own red pepper to my liking. The vegetable egg rolls and cold sesame noodle salad are a must.
