We came here on Memorial Day weekend (during Mule Days), so the restaurant was fairly busy though no wait for a table. We opted for take-out instead. The food was ready pretty quickly (10-15 minutes). We found all the dishes (we ordered 4) to be...More

As vegetarians we have some challenges finding good food when we travel. Asian food usually has good vegetarian selections. This restaurant had decent selections but I didn't care for the preparation. Vegetable chow mein was so so, spicy eggplant a bit to garlicky and bitter....More

A really very good Chinese restaurant. My wife and I go there for quite often for Chinese dishes. They have very good Mandarin and sweet-and-sour, especially the shrimp. Friendly service. Highly recommended.

We've eaten here several times and I think the food and ingredients are fresh and tasty. Service is excellent, too. No worries about sub-par 50's-style Chinese "brown/khaki" food. Nice menu with all the favorites.
