Lovely experience and value for a great meal. Trust me, you will not be disappointed with their menu. As for us during our visit we all shared our food to enjoy differant time of dishes. Can't wait to return on my next visit to the city.

I met my husband for lunch on Monday. We came before noon, which I would recommend because the place filled up. The food was good, best egg rolls I've had since leaving LA area. We both got lunch specials which came with egg drop soup that was very good, wish they would allow a choice of hot/sour soup. I got... More

This place has really tasty food and generous portions. Service is quick. A favorite of many locals. The place looks unassuming and parking lot is fairly small. The food is good.

On first appearance did not look like much. Waited on right away. We took our time ordering. Wife chose Chicken Fried Rice. It came on a large platter probably enough to feed 2 if you get an appetizer. I chose sweet and sour chicken with fried rice. Chicken was excellent. Wife could not eat all hers so I helped her...

Friendly staff/owners to greet you. Surprisingly good Chinese food. We had the eggplant and veggie egg rolls. The eggplant was perfectly cooked. It needed a little more spice. It came with moist steamed rice. The egg rolls were nice size. Not greasy and filled with delicious vegetables. We're coming back to try other entrées. More later. Thanks for reading. The... More

I ordered for take out due to the good reviews and close proximity to my home. The portions were extremely small, the price too high, and the food...full of MSG! I've never had Chinese food this salty. This may have been a good Chinese restaurant in the past, but not anymore. Will not be going back.

3 times I requested 'NO MSG". The next day my entire face was so swollen, I thought I might have to go to hospital. Food was ok. I did not know it was loaded withdeadly MSG.

Enjoyed the General tso's and shrimp vegetable dish served hot and fresh. Would have liked more broccoli and less celery. Had plenty of leftovers for the following days lunch. Prompt, friendly service. Rather small parking lot.
