This restaurant is just okay. Food came out hot only get a little rice. I felt tea was watered down. MSG is used in most sauces so I ordered chicken and broccoli which was very bland. Restaurant was way too bright...need to dim the lights.

Our second Cleveland Chinese experience, we found this place through TA. It's not readily apparent from the outside where this place is, based on the address. Located in the Chinese area of Cleveland, our nav brought us to the location of a large parking lot...More

All of the food here was cold and the service was awful. Springs rolls were cold, sesame chicken was cold and all of our dishes tasted like microwave TV dinner.

The restaurant is great. I've been to China many times and the food here is as close to China as you can get. They have dim sum every day but the weekends have the most extensive selections.
