This used to be my favorite Chinese food place, and I love Chinese food. I always get Hot and Sour Soup, Moo Shu Pork, Kung Pao Chicken, and Shrimp in Lobster Sauce. I had guests, and decided to order in. The food was terrible, at...More

Love this place. Everytime we're in town we stop by here or a meal. This time was no exception. Great service, and extensive and varied menu with lots of tasty options. Our food was perfect...again. You really should visit this place!

Ordered two entrees - vegetable moo shu and garlic shrimp - both were just ok. Nothing special. The spring rolls were disappointing. The accompanying sauces weren’t good either. All in all, a disappointing dinner. Should have listened to the other recent reviews.

Hi Dave. Thanks for the kind words. We think the half orders (along with a tasty menu) are one of the things that separates us from the rest. Our credo has always been, "the answer is yes, what's the question". In other words, it's a...More

Ordered home delivery. One of the main dishes of the order, shrimp lobster sauce, was missing . Cashew chicken had practically no chicken, and Mongolian beef overcooked. Rice dry. Pricey to boot. Never again.
