The family that has this little restaurant make sure they have one night a week just for family. T h e other 6 days a week the little ones join their mom and dad at the restaurant. Portions are hot and really good. They receive excellent health department scores

We went for the sushi and were extremely disappointed. I wouldn't recommend this to my enemy. The place is dingy and dark. The sushi area had flies all around it and the sushi was old and soggy. Definitely won't be back!

This is no doubt the best Chinese food in America. I'm a huge fan of Chinese food, and have been stationed across the US. I always come here first when I'm home though. The food is absolutely the best. Lee, and his Family do an amazing job.

The service is very good , the people who work there are friendly. The food I had was great. The beef was very tender and plenty of pea pods.

I go here every chance I get. They are always friendly and always great me as soon as I walk in. They are quick to serve and very good at checking up on you. Portion size is good and always get my money's worth.

My family had lunch here traveling through the area. The reviews were fairly positive so we took a chance. We were seated promptly and the wait staff was pleasant. Drinks were brought promptly and food was brought out in a reasonably quick fashion. A big plus was the hot and sour soup-probably the best I have ever had. My Kung... More

A welcoming restaurant in the downtown area. The menu has great choices and the food was great. The portions were large and their almond cookies were delicious. I look forward to eating in this establishment again.

My family and I like to come here on occasion. They have expanded their appetizer menu so there is more selection. The helpings are very generous; we usually end up taking food home. I have been ordering the wonton soup and the Crab Rangoon and have left very satisfied. Recommended if you are in the area and looking for a... More
