We dropped in late on a Saturday night with a large group. The staff was very friendly and efficient. The food was excellent and came quickly. I would have rated this "excellent" if not for the lack of decor. Pretty much bare walls and old...More

This restaurant is located in the original part of China Town in Merced. The food is good and the prices are very reasonable. Service is good, they always make sure your water is full.

It was my first visit. I usually order something simple to see how well they do and know if it will be worthwhile to return. I ordered curried chicken. I wanted to order soup but they only had large bowls and I wasn't that hungry....More

Eat in or take out, the service is quick, the staff is attentive and the food is great. This is our go to Chinese place in Merced. The Won Ton soup is a fave, full of meat and veggies, and the Brocolli Beef is delish!
