Can't miss Chinese Cuisine...everything is good. I had the General's Chicken and bok choy. It was very fresh and flavorful. We have enjoyed this place for many years and have many fond family memories here. It was my deceased mother-in-laws favorite. We will be back‼️

Basic Chinese food on Christmas night. Service was extremely friendly and fast. Took almost an hour after our reservation time to seat us but it was Christmas.

Came for lunch on Christmas day and the place was absolutely packed. Waited for more than an hour and it wasn't worth it. While the staff was working hard, the food was lackluster and not particularly tasty. We won't return.

The waiter was friendly and answered all my questions. We ordered the egg drop soup which was great. Egg rolls, which were lacking in flavor. We had combination fried rice which was also lacking in flavor. The chicken in the rice was disgusting. We also...More
