You won't find a better place in the vicinity! The best Mongolian beef ever. Cantonese chicken, beef fried rice are the bomb. Their egg rolls are delicious. I've been going here for 23 years and the food is consistently yummy. Just tried their Mongolian shrimp....excellent!

As one reviewer said, the food here is not great; in fact, any restaurant that provides more than one cuisine (in this case, Chinese & Filipino) should give you some ideas about the quality of its food. Still, it was passable enough although the Yu...More
