Decided to order delivery from this place...big MISTAKE! I ordered the "General Tso's" chicken, but instead got a container with bland chicken that was dipped in an excessive amount of batter. There was little to no sauce on the chicken. After trying just 2 pieces...More

Excellent servers (two women were working the night I visited) and they were very attentive and paid close attention to whatever we needed. My son and I both ate far too much, all of it good and fresh! Very reasonably priced, not too loud and...More

I read a great review of this place in a newspaper so I thought I would give it a try. We ordered 5 dishes, and they were hit or miss. I'm going to go out a limb and say that everything on the regular menu...More
