This is a small but very good restaurant. The portions are large and delicious. You won't leave this place hungry and the service is exceptional!

We had the dog with us and the restaurant has no outside seating, so we ordered for take-out. The order was correct, including the omission of garlic from one dish as requested, if a bit slow in coming (although the restaurant did not appear to be that busy). Food was very tasty.

We've been here a couple times now and we've enjoyed it both times. Although they have "Mandarin" and "Szechuan"on their sign, we think they do a good job with Cantonese dishes. We haven't had trouble getting a table here on weekends. This time around, we had pork pot stickers, chicken egg foo young, moo goo gai pan, and wonton soup.... More

This place was a sudden surprise for us, because we were waiting our friend from Lompoc and when she arrived, we entered the first near-by restaurant. And, we can not complain - everything here was perfect. We recommend it!

I was the only one seated in the restaurant and expected the staff to be annoyed as it was close to 9 pm. Quite the opposite. The service was terrific and the wonton soup one of the best I've had in a long time. I suspect some ingredients are sourced locally...at least they seemed very fresh to me. I believe... More

My husband and I stopped in here without knowing anything about it before hand. We were so glad we took the chance to try something new. The restaurant is off the main road in a little strip mall. We went on a Sunday afternoon and it was pretty empty, but there was a steady flow of people coming in and... More

Found this restaurant in the strip mall next to a Pizza place. The employees are friendly, attentive, & professional. We ate lunch from the lunch specialties. Very good food. They even mixed 2 different types of soup in one bowl for me. I tend to be a "I like it the way I like it" type of person. They didn't... More

Some of the best Chinese food this side of San Francisco! Have eaten here often and have never been disappointed! Love the fried noodles and the orange beef - compliment it with a Chinese beer - who could ask for more? Very friendly owner and the wait staff is always attentive. Located a bit off the beaten path in a... More
