So good, on so many different levels. I had take out. The Family Dinner Special #1. All Chinese restaurants should be like Fred's. This place has been in business for a very long time, and that is not a fluke. They consistently cook up great food. The only tough thing about dining here is the parking situation. Parking in Nevada... More

Service was also good and friendly. On a cold night the soup really hit the spot. portions were ample. My husband ordered a mai tai from the bar and... More

Delicious Chinese Food, vegetarian style, clean atmosphere, and friendly staff... Perfect location in Nevada City and you will have no problem finding it. It's a casual atmosphere but lovely to sit and enjoy tasty Chinese food...

Unassuming decor on the main street (Broad St), this restaurant surprised us, both with the quality of the food, and the quantity delivered. We were hungry when we ordered, but ended up taking home enough for another dinner.

Fred's can hit the spot when I'm looking for straight forward, down-to-earth, dependably good food. The menu has a range of choices and I've never been disappointed in the dishes I've tried. Good options to get nicely prepared vegetables.

I eat here often. There are many specials that include soup, entrée, rice and egg roll for a very good price. Quality is good and consistent. Menu is varied. Casual décor.
