Best Chinese in town. Online ordering and fast service. Delicious options. Get it all the time. Recommend the orange chicken and shrimp toast. Also delicious pork egg rolls and crab Rangoon!

If you have been to Chinese restaurants in NYC, SF, Wash, Boston, or even Denver...this place does not measure up. Inappropriate brown sauces that are more like gravy. Shrimp dishes swimming, dominated by with diced onions. Egg drop soup that is completely forgetable. This is a carry out place, not really a restaurant. Uncomfortable seats, poor service. There is not... More

I moved from the Omaha/CB area in 2009, every time I go back home this place is on my list of places to eat. Kids love it too!
