Wonderful establishment, great takeout and a most marvelous buffet with an assortment of dishes. Excellent egg rolls and you can't forget the soft-serve ice cream for dessert.

This restaurant has been in Carthage for years and is somewhat traditional. To me, the food is just average. It is a favorite to many.

They do to go orders! Springfield style Cashew chicken meal is a little over $5. They have a buffet if you want to sit down. Would highly recommend for Springfield style cashew chicken without the drive to Springfield. Menu is posted below.
