Once in awhile I crave Chinese and this is the local option. I enjoy the selection. They have a lunch buffet but I haven't tried that during the day. I usually get take out after work.

We love our chinese food in this house. This place, over all, has been a huge hit for the family. Every restaurant has a bad day now and then but on the whole this has been a great place to eat! We recommend it!

We selected this option when the original option had an hour and a half wait! We found friendly welcome and very tasty foods. We would return here again! Very good Chinese foods!
