The food is exactly what you’d expect from classic American-Chinese cuisine. The portions are very large and the prices very small. Sesame chicken is a must. There is almost always a free table and the food comes really quick. Aquarium adds to the authentic atmosphere...More

The Hunan duck is perhaps my favorite Chinese dish ever. The skin was crispy even covered in sauce. The sauce was flavorful with just a slight kick. The schesuan shrimp and scallops was very spicy but not to the point of being inedible. Their egg...More
