This is the best Chinese restaurant in town! The owners are very nice, the food is reasonably priced, and everything is cooked fresh. My favorite chinese restaurant!

We ate at Wongs on Sunday for the dim sum. We arrived at 10:45, & ordered 12 plates of dim sum. Dim sum was served within 15 minutes which is reasonable as it's cooked as ordered.
