Very nice people that work here and very GREAT FOOD!!!! Get the special fried rice and you will see LARGE chunks of meat, instead of the small pieces that we see here in the United States.

This is by far one of the best Chinese restaurants in town. I went with my mother, who loves it! The food is always fresh, service is prompt and friendly, price is very reasonable. Be sure to try their "Arroz Tostado", simple awesome!

I go to this restaurant very often. They are open on Sundays night, that´s why I visited them often. The service is average, the food is good and it has parking in front. Nothing to live and get die.

I have been coming to this restaurant for the past 22 years. I have tried many chinese restaurants and this still offers the best fried rice and tofu soup. I must say, it can be a hit or miss on the service. I avoid lunchtime...More
