This tiny little place is probably not the best eat in spot due to extremely bright lighting but for take out was very good. The chef's seafood choice in a garlic spicy sauce was excellent and loaded with seafood.

We visit this Chinese restaurant every year and it fails to disappoint us. The shrimp (soft noodle) Lo Mein is filled with plump shrimp. The soup of cabbage and egg is delicious. The pork rice is also great.

There was an appetizer, main dish, rice & a soup as I recall! But here's the thing: I prefer to order off the regular menu & not the lunch specials, as there are too many yummier things to be had!
