I love this restaurant. The food is delicious. Sweet and Sour Pork is one of my favorites, but they also have an assortment of vegetarian options as well. The service is fast.

Even if it doesn't live up to the hype, you will enjoy the frendley service, reasonable prices, and satisfactory food.

We always order for pick up. The restaurant itself doesn't offer much ambiance for me. It's a little outdated, and just slightly sad. The food however is inexpensive and good! The hot and sour food is my favorite when I am feeling sick. It's spicy...More

I've eaten Peking Duck in many restaurants all over the U.S., and Little Shin Shin's is by far the best (even including my own!). Order it a day ahead to be sure one is still available and cooked the same day.

Family take out. We had a variety of dishes and some spring rolls. The best of the dishes were the shin Shin beef and pork. Egg rolls typical and sauce mild. I like more heat

Ate here last night after reading good reviews. As soon as we entered the waiter was rushing us to order before being seated. This rude and unwelcoming staff definitely needs training in customer service. We asked for whole fish and the waiter sucked his teeth...More

I love this restaurant. It has been a favorite place for several years. Depending on the crew that's working, I don't even need a menu they know what I'm going to order! The staff is friendly and super efficient! Parking is a nightmare. Be prepared...More
