Flies, shabby interior and the spicy chow mein was awful. The Chinese staff was friendly which is a rarity, and the teenage female server was a happy thing but not very efficient.

The staff is great. Wonderful service and seriously delicious food. Weird, old school booths that made me nervous at first, then the food came out quickly and was so yummy. New favorite place for black pepper beef.

Always friendly service, and always great tasting food. Their egg rolls are to die for too. Highly recommend.

...but the quality of the food seems to have slipped. The lemon chicken isn't as lemony as it used to be. Still has quick, friendly service!

Would go to this restaurant almost twice a month it was so good. In the last year the portions have decreased and well as the wonderful flavor they used to have and the price has gone up. Maybe the cook has changed, I really miss the old Chinese Café food!!

They serve a different style of Chinese Food. You will enjoy it. Not fancy but the food makes up for it.

This is a quaint, mom and pop type Chinese cafe. The atmosphere is definitely cafe style, but the food is great and so is the service. It's the best Chinese food I've had and they bring the food dish by dish rather than all at once. This allows your table to not be overloaded with everything at the same time.... More

This restaurant was recommended to us, despite the humble appearance. They were right. The kitchen picked up on our tastes and preferences, dosing our spicy dishes heavily with Szechwan peppercorns. Perfect. I virtually never fail to eat everything we order in a chinese restaurant, down to the last grain of rice. Here I couldn't. Not because it wasn't good, but... More
