This is strictly a take out food joint. Everyone I have taken here has said the food is the best chinese food they ever ate. The prices are very good for the amount of food you get.

Not sure what people are raving about this average food & service. Food was nothing to call home about or even remember.

I went to try try this place, but just going IN, we didn't like the smell of it (like rotten food), and the A/C was OFF. I guess they are trying to save money on the electric bill.

I've been coming here for years now and I have yet to have an issue. Thr food is always cooked fresh and ready within the time they give you. Prices are just as good as the food!

We are from NY and now live in Texas. This was the best chinese food we have had since we left NY . The egg rolls were thick and tasty (NY style) portions were large; price was reasonable.
