Had a very nice dinner with another couple. I’ve been to this place before, but this time the meal was excellent. My husband likes shrimp toast, and to my dismay he ordered it. Normally it’s awful but this time it looked so good I tried...More

It's not a place to get anything tasting remotely authentic. Very Americanized in menu options and spice/flavor. Service is ok. Prices low. It fills up for lunch and the room is small. Last resort.

Excellent Chinese restaurant. Low key, friendly staff, casual setting and quality food. This restaurant can get crowded so I would recommend making a reservation. Portions are large so consider that when ordering. Three entrees are plenty for four people.
