We tried this location prior to attending the Garth Brooks concert. Located just outside the venue. Limited seating with a large selection of food. Food tasted good and hit the spot. Good portions with descent prices. Friendly staff and free Chinese tea to drink.

I've had better Chinese food. Everything also tastes very peanutty. The crab rangoons are very tiny, and the sweet and sour chicken wasn't very good. The egg rolls were probably the best tasting thing I ordered.

We tried the roast pork egg rolls, Wonton soup and Singapore Mei Fun. All excellent. We did not visit the restaurant. We were at the Hampton Inn and ordered delivery. It was there in less than 40 minutes. Great service. Excellent food. Generous portions. Hard to beat.

The menu prices are really reasonable and the service is friendly. I went to Lams for dinner and ordered the specialty platter it was a really great deal.

Expectation of a typical Chinese restaurant or take out. Huge portion, tasty, maybe a little salty. Not atmospheric but fast service. Business lunch crowd, safe place to walk at lunch time.
