The food was good and fresh. Their portions are extremely large. We actually couldn't even get through half of the individual meal. It was insane! If you want lots of food which tastes good - this is certainly the place to eat.

Husband and I ordered General Tso's Chicken (a benchmark for comparison) and Spicy Beef. Portions were huge. Each was easily enough for four people, if you eat a normal amount with rice. Breading was heavy (really, probably not all that much actual meat there, when you get right down to it), sauce was heavy, sweet, and almost devoid of spicy... More

Serving portions are huge. If you're sharing, you may not want one entree for each person. We were surprised by how good the Egg Foo Young was. Overall I would say average quality, but good value.

After a long day of working and not wanting to cook we look to the Modern for great Chinese food to pick up and bring home. The portions are plentiful and we are able to eat for more than one meal on the amount they provide. The menu offers many choices but we always seem to include sweet and sour... More

My one daughter and I stopped in for lunch this past week end, had a great meal with more food than we could possibly eat, had to bring some home.

I'm trying to find the type of Chinese food that I like. There was a place called Chinese village in Moscow Idaho that I'm comparing these places to. This one is good. Sweet and sour pork, sauce is a bit sweet. Almond chicken, chicken is cooked right, but I think the almond sauce should be a creamy white, not brown... More

We always go to the Golden Horse Restaurant when we are in Walla Walla. However, they were on vacation so we went to the Modern which my husband said is [or used to be] owned by the same people as the Golden Horse. We got mountains of food and left with four boxes of leftovers. It was good but not... More
