My husband and I were in Newport News and stopped at this location for lunch. Nice inside with beautiful stain glass dividers of fish and ducks. Booths or tables. My husband got a bowl of egg drop soup and two egg rolls and I got the Phoenix Nest that is only on the dinner menu but I love this dish.... More

This restaurant has been around a very long time, I was skeptical when my mother suggested it. I told her "wait...Let me look it up and read some current reviews." The reviews were good, so we went. I was very pleasantly surprised at the food. Everything was excellent...The service was great, too. The only reason I didn't give 5 stars... More

The usual dishes are well prepared and well seasoned, it could use better ventilation as when you leave you can smell your food on your clothes

This restaurant is been around for a very long time and although it may not be under the same management we still find the food to be of good quality. Whether eating in or taking out it seems to remain consistent through the years. Peking duck is a favorite of mine

Tables and booths and long table in back for parties. The food is really really good! My husband got egg drop soup and I got Wonton. Noodles are crisp and good... More

Let me mention the positives about this restaurant. First, the service is excellent. Second, I like the traditional feel of it. Third, the menu is extensive. Now, the negative. The egg drop soup was loaded with rice. How disappointing. Egg drop soup at Virginia Beach's Forbidden Palace is excellent. This one is just passable. The subgum chicken chow mein that... More

Needed a family destination for our Wedding Anniversary. Jeanne mentioned we had not had Chinese for a long time (too busy exploring other cuisine). Called her son and daughter in law and arranged to meet us there (Anne promptly emailed Jeanne and blew the surprise). Food was delicious (all had different meals). Service was excellent (just the right pace). Decided... More

My wife and I eat Chinese frequently. Stumbled across this place by accident but were glad we did! We had the house special fried rice and Gen Tso's Chicken. Definitely check it out, you will be happy!

This place has been a favorite for almost 20 years. Never had a problem until a few nights ago. Called in an order for pickup and it was wrong. Didnt check the order until we got home, so we called to complain. We were not offered any compensation nor would she let us speak to the owner or manager. She... More
