This place is awesome. The staff is friendly and the prices were very reasonable. We enjoyed the food so much that we ate here both nights during our visit to Columbia. You will be glad you stopped by. Enjoy.

A longtime favorite for its ham fried rice and wings, today I ordered the extra small shrimp lo mein. The term "extra small" is a misnomer in this case -- I am a heavy eater and the extra small size was all that I needed. If you are really hungry you might want the "small" but anything larger is a...

It's on the way home so I'll occassionally stop in for a House Fried Rice meal. The wings are pretty popular with the locals but I'm not sure why. Like almost all Chinese take out they are soft and mushy with very little flavor or mouth texture appeal. Flavor comes souly from their sauces, which are average. Where they beat... More

Up until 10 years ago, I lived in Washington, DC where you can throw a rock in any direction and hit a great restaurant.

The large portion is HUGE and enough to easily feed 2 and maybe 3-4 people. Prices are pretty good here too. I used to... More

This is an old favorite of mine. The family that runs this place has done so for years and they recently built a new building. This place is always hopping because its a good old standby for the locals. They have great eggrolls, fried rice, sesame chicken, pepper steak. It's typical Chinese take out!
