Dining room is dark so hard to tell if it's clean. Ordered combination Mei Fun, I'd rate it good but average. I'll eat here again for the smiling good service. Portion size is good, buffet lunch available and it seemed well stocked and clean.

The food is ok and it is very low priced, we usually pay around $14 for two meals and drinks. The staff is very kind and attentive, always refill our drinks promptly. The place feels small and dingy, but it is not a big issue considering the price.

First time visitor, disappointed in selection, chicken was dry beef fatty. The eggs rolls were good and the lo main, the rest not good! Three different prices posted outside and in. It doesn't take 10 mins to change a sign! Will not come back!

This is the third time our carryout order was wrong. The person on the phone obviously didnt speak or understand english well. Very rude on the phone, no apologies or refund offers. Its a bummer cause food is good, but dont eat there; mold, smells of fish tank, 1970's upgrades the inside is scary.

Eat there often but had a bad experience today. Went there for the lunch special as was advertised on the outside sign. Stated 5.49. Chalk board inside had the dinner price still written on it. Dinner meal is posted outside as 7.99. This was noon time. Cashier refused to adjust price. Also gave me 'no ice' instead of 'no rice'... More

They are more popular for their Buffet for lunch week days and lunch on Sunday. The small restaurant fills up right after church on Sunday's. The Buffet price is very affordable at $6.99 all you can eat. If you order off them menu then , yes it can get a tiny bit pricey. The best value then, is to get... More

My first Chinese food here in Chattanooga and wasn't that impressed. Most dinner specials come with a free egg roll and this you have to pay extra. The steam rice was not that sticky but the general was good just not spicy. Dumplings are ok but overpriced. This place would do better if they delivered and had coupons that one... More

We been going there off & on since it's the only Chinese restaurant near . They seem to over charge , feel they are not honest . Our son found a piece of metal in his dish ; owner played games when we told him not very happy with service .
