The food here was subpar and seemed very greasy. I would not suggest eating here, I believe the food has not changed in the 40 years I have lived here.

You must eat in. Fantastic dated decor. Tall booths, water features. Red lights. Why dont they make restaurants like this any more. Plus they deliver. (golden wok does too).

My favorite Chinese and I live 45 miles away. Stop in when I'm in Pasco. Restaurant itself dated but clean. Lounge needs to open earlier as I prefer to wait there for my take out.

Want your meeting to look clandestine? Then this is the place!! The atmosphere reeks late 40's, but in a good way. It's a little darker inside, with tall booths. The food has been my absolute favorite CHINESE since the 80's. It is traditional Chinese, the way we remember it from take-out Fridays of the past. The service is friendly, the... More

I've been going to this restaurant since the early 1980's. Their food is really really good, and you get a lot of food for your money. Their staff is very quick and friendly. The restaurant is huge and seats many many people, There's also two separate rooms which seats groups of families. If you are a Chinese food lover, you... More

I have never eaten in the restaurant, though it is very popular with locals between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. I have picked up take out Chinese food which was delicious. I would recommend checking your bags to make sure all of your food is in the bags. The restaurant is dark inside and I haven't wanted to sit in... More

This is not good food. Over-salted, extra greasy, and, by the look of the establishment, I'm not sure how sanitary it is. The service was average at best. This place has been here for a long time. I can't quite figure out how. Pasco citizens must have very poor expectations, or very poor taste buds. It's almost unbelievable that a... More

I am extremely mind boggled by all the positive reviews. I can only assume those people never had good chinese food, because this IS NOT GOOD CHINESE FOOD! It is like it came from a can and disguised with other seasoning. My family couldn't wait to leave and buy over priced snacks at the airport.

My husband and I enjoy the wonderful flavors of the many dishes served here. We especially like the egg flower soup. It is so refreshing and satisfying. We often order the fried wontons and BBQ pork as side dishes. We always have more than we can eat, so we have left overs for the next day. One could order one... More
