I have been here many times, never been feel sorry to come here for dinner. Try it, if you looking for real Chinese food. The owner is very nice lady, she will ask you question and help you if you don't know what to choose.

I have been looking for a good Chinese place since moving from Chicago and finally found one. The egg rolls are VERY small but good, the fried rice is awesome as is the shrimp with pea pods and the cashew chicken. Will definitely repeat.

Tasty, personable, reasonably priced. We'll certainly go back. The restaurant is small, cozy, and clean. And the food was truly fantastic and quite plentiful.

Tasty food and quick take out. The pot stickers are to die for and the Ginger Fish is amazing. We are regulars!

Simply one of the best dining experience you can have. Chinese food is second to none. Small business, owner run, non chain option. Order off the menu or have Jean (owner) tailor make an entree for an extra special treat. Don't miss this place.
