Family run, very friendly service. Food is very fresh and flavorful. One of the best Chinese meals we have had in years. We had orange chicken, General Tsao's chicken, broccoli beef and tempura shrimp (large). Easily enough for two meals. Excellent !

This place is always clean, love their crispy beef, chicken wings, war wonton soup, barbque pork, sautéed greens, egg foo yung, have never had anything I did not like. We've taken visitors, parents, our kids, young and old and absolutely no complaints. Feel like family when I enter and when I leave. Great service. Love, love, love this place.

Visited on Christmas night. Excellent service, quick fresh food. Honored our special requests and made a great meal. Server was very friendly and helpful. Restaurant doesn't look like much from outside but worth a trip. Comfortable, clean, friendly, and tasty.

A group of our camper club, 14 of us, arrived about 5:00. There was room for us to sit together, even though there were already two large families there. The staff was very friendly, didn't get concerned about each couple wanting separate bills and executed it all smoothly. They got all the orders correct and were helpful. We didn't require... More

Eat here 3-4 times per month. Their party trays are good value and they're not skimpy on their portions.
