Never had kosher Chinese before. Went for a birthday celebration. Huge portions for the $25 price-fixe. Nice selection with many choices. We all enjoyed our choices. Everyone had to take home a doggie bag---nobody could finish all of the food.

Best place for a family get together. They have an upstairs room where you can have a small private function. Their service is impeccable and consistent and always delivered with a smile. Food is great!

I'm not a fan of Chinese food but the food here was delicious. The service was quick and the wait staff patient and friendly.

The food was rubber and the staff was cold. Come to think of it, so was the soup, the chicken and even the pepper steak. I have eaten at several chinese restaurants. I am no expert but it was not wotuh the price I paid.
