This place was such a disappointment...I was really looking forward to trying some East Coast Chinese food, and decided to try this place after seeing some good reviews and being close by it. Bleh. The food had obviously been warmed in the microwave (very bubbly...More

I read a great review of this place in a newspaper so I thought I would give it a try. We ordered 5 dishes, and they were hit or miss. I'm going to go out a limb and say that everything on the regular menu...More

Very dependable Chinese restaurant offering Szechuwan specialities. Service is efficient, but you have to ask for things like water, a glass for your beer, or sometimes even a fork. I was disappointed in the spring rolls, which were barely warm. Obviously they had been held...More
