Even though this carry out place offers a menu that looks like many other Chinese Restaurants, don't be fooled! Everything tastes the same. All dishes are overloaded with chopped celery, same sauce on everything, and none of it very good.

Stopped by for dinner while my daughter was at Girl Scouts. The service was friendly as fast. I was pleased with the overall portion of my meal, I got the large dinner with a drink for $10 and some change. The food was good. Nothing stood out making this particular visit any more or less than average. One small issue... More

My daughter and I stopped by and ordered take out after a night of holiday shopping. The cheese wontons had orange cheese inside and a funky texture, they were also really chewy. My daughter's General Tso's chicken had no taste. I ordered mixed Chinese vegetables and asked if they could put tofu in it for an extra charge of course.... More

The combo lunches are an excellent buy. The food is always good. They have good soups also- especially the hot and sour soup.

The food here was okay when hot but as leftovers, you can tell it was boosted by some sort of MSG-like substance and I could tell by a body reaction the next day.

They actually REFUSE to prepare a dish that doesn't have MSG. Glad there is now another Chinese restaurant to offer them some competition.

We tried the take out a second time because we thought it was a quirk that the food was that bad the first time we got it. It was not a quirk. The food is terrible. There are 4 other asian restaurants in the area.

Only place in Palmyra (until recently) to get chinese. Nothing stands but but just as with "american" mexican, the food was good but nothing to rave about. quick service too. I prefer to order during lunch hours since I can get the exact same food for $3-$4 less. portions are slightly smaller but not by much.

Unfortunately, it's the only Chinese Take Out (that I know of) in the Palmyra area at this time. Food is average. Sometimes, though it's better than other times. Seems the busier they are, the better the food is. Lady up front is sometimes rude and doesn't speak English very well. They've never gotten my order wrong, but I don't always... More
