Went to dinner tonight and thought it may have changed from the last time I went-which was many years ago. I stopped going because the food had no flavor. Well tonight it still has not changed. The ginger ale was flat, the wait staff was rude, the mou-shi had a burnt flavor, along with no taste or sauce. The sauce... More

Typical Chinese food menu, Good quality, I think their pork fried rice is better than most other places. We can generally pick up our take out order within 15 minutes of calling them. We recently placed an order on NYE around 4:30. Stopped in at 5:15 to pick it up and they had 2 huge tables piled up with take... More

We haven't been here in years, and honestly I wouldn't go back. First of all, the water smelled and tasted awful. Secondly, their phone rang constantly for take out, and was VERY loud. Thirdly, the seasoning of the dishes we got was very "off". The garlic broccoli was sweet...actually every dish we got seemed sweet except for the vegetable lo-mein.... More

We started coming here because our kitchen was under construction. We continue to visit because the food is fresh, reliable and not over sauced. It doesn't taste too salty or greasy. We particularly like the generous vegetables in some of the dishes.

We usually do takeout here - sometimes go to eat at the restaurant. My favorite is the Ginger Chicken with Green Beans which is reliably good. The chicken is flavorful, nicely spicy. The beans are fresh and crisp. I also frequently order the Hot and Sour soup which is also very very good. My husband likes the Cold Noodles which... More

My husband suggested we celebrate the new year with Chinese food. So, we headed out to a restaurant in a shopping center in Millis he has seen on his way to and from work and we were very surprised with the food selection and taste. The store front suggests this was a take-out only place, but it is not. There... More

Nothing bad, except maybe the lack of any kind of music so the emptiness of the restaurant is accentuated (we were the only people there most of our meal except for two people who came in to pick up take-out orders). But, nothing really good, either. Fair food, fair service, fair décor. I would not mind going there if it... More

Not oily like many chinese restaurants. We love our Chinese food for sure, and have sampled nearly every Chinese restaurant in area, and this is our favorite hands down. I have probably gone here every other week at least for 10 years so suffice to say I am a fan (because they deserve the loyalty). Super Fresh, always hot and... More

Nice place for Chinese food and for takeout! Clean and quiet, even though at times it may look like not many people in there but don't let that fool you! They also do quite a bit of takeout orders, the locals here knows where to get great Chinese food :-) The food is fresh, not greasy and their service is... More
