The food is great. A noon time you will find a very busy place and may wait for a table. It is worth the wait. Best Chinese lunch on the Westside

The food here is ok, not great. I know there are different recipes for hot and sour soup, I prefer those with vegetables, and this had none. The moo goo gai pan was essentially a chicken vegetable dish. Flavors were fairly bland as well.

Have ordered from here dozens of times and they never disappoint. They cook with healthy oils and NO MSG so that's a big plus!

We always get good quality and fast service for Chinese take out. The orders are good portions and they always have our favorites. The buffet is also good for a big appetite when you need that. We don't go any where else for Chinese food.

If you're on the south side of town head over to 8th street and grab a bite of Asian. Family owned for many years. There is a great selection of food and drinks. Been going for years and always have a good lunch.
