Food is pretty good! The atmosphere inside... not so much so I would recommend taking food to go! I love the crab puffs, poo poo platter and lo mein to mention a few dishes.

Got takeout - when I pulled up, it was a dicely looking restaurant...went I went inside, it looked even more so...Not 1 person inside except the one who came out from the back to see what I wanted. The food was hot when I got home but that is the only positive thing I can say. It looked as bad... More

Not too bad, not great, but it was quick and hot! I ordered quite a few things of the menu. The biggest complaint that I had was the seafood dish, it has scallops, shrimp, crab and lobster. The flavor was good, scallops and crab meat were excellent as the crab was true crab leg meat and not the imitation, however... More

I have eaten here frequently over the years, always for lunch when I am working in the area. This is your basic "hole in the wall" restaurant housed in a stand alone building. This trip I almost passed it by based solely on its outside appearance but since I had always found the food tasty and fresh decided to give... More

I never write reviews, but I had to this time. We were staying in Doswell this past weekend and the menus were at the front counter of our hotel. We weren't starving, but still wanted something. Because we did not know what to expect, we ordered egg rolls, pork fried rice, and beef lo mein. Can't really screw these items... More

I would give it no stars if I could. We have been coming here on and off for over 20 years and watched a painful decline. Tonight was rock bottom, never again. Only 1 person on staff! Yes I said 1, front of house, waiter, cook, busboy, everything! The food was just an indescribable mess. As I write this I... More

PuPu Platter & Wonton soup are incredibly delicious. Try these elsewhere and you'll come back here. Their Hunan Chicken is outstanding with fresh succulent broccoli and tender chicken pieces. Schezuan dishes are not spiced with Schezuan peppers due to bland American palates(Bummer).

I eat here all the time. I always order the sweet and sour chicken and rice. Some are good, others are bad. My friend loves the schezchuan chicken. However the hot and sour soup is horrible. It needs more spice.
