I can't think of one Asian dish they didn't serve....and some American ones too!. All fresh and tasty. It's comfort food on a cold Maine afternoon or evening.

As a former NYer, I have yet to find a really good Chinese restaurant in the Portland area. This one is the best of the lot. So if you're looking for great Chinese food, try a major city. If you must have your Chinese food...More
