Has changed names several times, and my have all the same people. Prices a bit steep for quantity and quality. I would pass on it, even with it being very close to my home.

We had dined here a couple of years ago and it was terrible, we thought we would give them another try and what a change, they have a new owner and cook, the food was great with generous portions. Worth trying again. The décor is simple at best but comfortable.

Choices for Chinese food in the Thurston are slim. I noticed the name change for the strip mall restaurant and thought I would give it a try. I was very surprised that the food was freshly prepared, served piping hot and very good. I hope word of mouth makes this a long term choice for food in the Thurston area.

I get the chance to travel quite a bit, dine at many restaurants,and this place is excellent. What a gem in Springfield! We ordered a few items to share with our family. All were terrific and still had plenty of leftovers due to the generous portions.

Food is good, decor is not much more than a place to sit. I eat here once a month. Never had a complaint about their service.

The food has improved so much since the new owner and cook took over. I like spicy and the General Tao's and Mongolian Beef are great. My wife likes the chicken chow mein and the portions are great. If you have not tried this place in a while I highly recommend it.

So, we're foodies and we're not kidding. This food is beyond amazing. Try the coconut chicken or a #10 which includes 5, yes 5 actual prawns, chow mein, rice, sweet and sour chicken and soup. We got 3 meals out of this one. The owners/operators of this place are so sweet and so concerned that our experience was perfect. No... More

We were staying in Eugene, OR. This is an unpretentious local place that serves Chinese food with plenty of vegetables. As a vegetarian, I was delighted. I didn't have mounds of starch pushed on me. I had a large pancake made of eggs and bean sprouts that was delicious. Other folks seemed very happy with their orders which were huge.... More
