Food all fried and yucky. Staff was nice. Atmosphere OK. Sure college kids will love the price $10 and all you can eat, but nothing fresh.

I have been here numerous times. This place is fantastic. All of my Chinese friends eat here which speaks highly of the establishment. I ask for the traditional Chinese menu, but you can have the "Americanized" menu as well. Both are great.
