Tasty Chinese Food anytime of the day. We go here whenever the craving strikes us. Duck, Chicken and Beef dishes rule.

A solid Chinese food place in town. The buffet has a big selection that is generally all good. Generals chicken, chicken teriyaki & boneless spare ribs are always terrific. Take out & you get big portions

My wife and I stopped in here for lunch during one of our Saturday visits to Lexington. It was very good. I rather liked my General Gao's chicken and she her vegetable fried rice. Portion sizes are generous
