This restaurant has such a wide variety of choices. They have all your favorite Chinese dishes plus some American ones. I would highly recommend going for lunch because it is much cheaper.

We always go for dinner so I am not 100% sure. Dinner is $16.50 and I believe lunch is around $10.00-$11.00. No sushi or oysters at lunch. 65 and older get a 10% discount for lunch according to the local paper.
