Fast delivery. Affordable price and good quality food. I would come here again if looking for Take-out/Delivery. They advertise lunch buffet, but that is not accurate. They have lunch deals instead.

Typical stand alone Mom and Pop restaurant. Decor is dated but again fairly typical for a Chinese restaurant. I think you'd be satisfied with the variety.

We have been coming here for over 30 years and it's still the same owners. It's our favorite place for Chinese food. The building is old and it's like going back in time. The food is fresh and hot. They are friendly and have good service.

The owners are very nice people.. The store front and inside decor is tired. Because the restaurant is very clean and food is excellent I go back a couple of times a month.
