My experience here was lackluster to say the least. The food was ok- my entree was mostly rice and the egg drop soup was mostly cornstarchy broth. The veggie egg roll that came with my lunch was actually a little spring roll; once again of little substance. The blond dude cashier literally did not say a single word to me... More

This place has great food, but what I actually love most is the couple that run this place! They are always smiling and welcoming and you can watch them make your food while you wait. and the food is great. My favorite so far is the Japanese Teriyaki chicken! Their food isn't the best asian food I've had in my... More

Our dinner tonight just did not taste right. The chicken was tough, stringy, tasted "old" and just plain unhealthy. It was delivered and, when we called the restaurant back, to tell them of the sub-par food, the owner, "Lily", impatiently insisted that we were wrong, that the food was fresh, and she would not lift a finger to make the...

Last ate here back in the 90's when food was great. The food was very greasy and mongolian beef had a rotten taste to it and had to be thrown away.

The food is delicious - I have ordered the Mango Shrimp a number of times and it is great! And their Sweet and... More

My friends and I had a great experience. They are such nice people, as it is family owned. It's a pretty laid-back atmosphere too. I am completely biased toward their food now. They have normal dinner prices and low lunch prices, whether you're a student or not. Each time I go back, I bring someone new and everyone I have... More

Excellent food, its been in service for years. There Fried rice used to be the best in town when it was still run by Ivy. Haven eater there thousands of times over the last 15 or so years I seriously doubt there was ever a cook who spit in someone's food. I've occasionally had a mistake on my order and... More

College cafe gave me the wrong order and when I returned, the owner wouldn't refund, or remake my food for me. I asked for my food back and the cook opened up the container, spit on the food, and then tried to give it back to me. I filed a police report and complaints with the BBB. Do you like... More
