Mostly good/slightly above average. Once in a while you get a bland/little flavor dish - almost as if they forgot to add spices and flavoring. Sometimes too many vegetables, bamboo shoots etc. instead of chicken and meat of a specific dish. Overall though, you will...More

This restaurant specializes in take out and produces very consistent good Chinese food. We typically get the Moo Shu Chicken about once a month.

This was my first visit, and I think I may go back. Service was friendly and quick. I'd asked for my food to be made extra spicy, and unlike some places, it was. The egg drop soup was especially good.

Great family-owned Chinese take-out spot near Hollymead and Forest Lakes. Call you order in ahead and it will be ready when you get there.

Tasty Chinese and sushi for take out. We love chicken and broccoli which they willingly make mildly spicy for us. Another favorite of ours is the shrimp avocado roll. As an extra plus, our order is always ready when they say it will be!

Perfect for take out Chinese. No tables but super fast service. Call ahead and give them a pick up time. Your food will be hot and waiting. Speaking of food, they do a good job using fresh ingredients. My orders are sometimes complicated; more spice,...More
