Came for lunch 4/26/2017. I took the lunch special with orange chicken. The Salad had a nice peanut flavored saad dressing but the orange chicken was anything but good. It was breaded and deep fried. There was lots of breading but not much chicken. Fried rice also came with the order but the fried rice had no flavour and was... More

We ordered take out at this restaurant. the food was quite good, however, they forgot to include one of the meals in the order. When we called, they do not offer delivery service (to rectify the oversight), however, they did rebate the cost of that dinner plus a little more to ease our "pain". Food was in good sized portions... More

This review is for the sister restaurant. We were here for a late lunch on a Saturday. My sister likes the cilantro fish. This is a Hunan & Mandarin restaurant. I commented on the fresh basil that was sitting on a table. I am more familiar with Cantonese dishes so I asked for a recommendation and the waiter suggested "Elite... More

I thought , some vegetables instead of some of the other choices on the street, so i tried the lunch special Buddha's delight. It was ok. not bad, the hot and sour soup was ok, I like Ming's better, but, it was there.

Visited with another couple for a birthday meal back in September. The food was delicious and fresh, however the service was not that great. Parts of our meal arrived at different times, often when another part of our meal was finished. However food made up for the lack of service.

The potstickers were wonderfully cooked and the sesame chicken was heavenly. The sweet and sour pork was surprisingly subtle and not overly sweet. The disappointments were the noodles and the walnut prawns. The service was attentive, and fast. And the complementary ice cream was a nice surprise!

I have to rave about this place a bit. I have a fever but allergy and if I even smell any type of nuts my throat swells shut. My boyfriend and I went in to eat and while waiting for a table we noticed that there were nuts everywhere. We told the host never mind getting us a table because... More

I have been going for lunch to Dragon's Pond on Locust St. for a few years and they haven't let me down yet. They have a very large menu to choose from for lunch and the quality has always been excellent for about $8 to $9. The lunch entrees come with soup, rice, and a choice of salad or spring... More

Not exactly plowing new ground, it is very good Chinese food, served hot and plenty of it. I absolutely love Drunken Chicken!--the garlic is unique.
