Found myself in Harrisburg for the first time and hungry. Found this place seemingly reviewed well by the locals. Restaurant was mostly full and busy with lunch crowd. Lunch specials are all under $5.00. Which included egg drop soup, fried rice, egg roll and main dish. I drink water with most meals, so my lunch total was $5.40. Nothing fancy,... More

Can't believe this place is #3 in Harrisburg. I'd hate to eat at #4! Although the waiter was nice, service was painfully slow. The sodas tasted funny and the food was bland. It didn't taste bad, it just didn't have much flavor at all. The restaurant is poorly lit with low wattage, harsh white lighting. It's hard to even see... More

I'm really impressed with this place. Good food, at a fair price, made fresh, and friendly staff. What more could you ask for in a restaurant?

You won't anything too exciting on this menu but everything we had was well cooked and flavorful. We ordered the heat level on the Szechuan-style dish as medium and we were pleased with the result -- just the right amount of bite. The hot mustard also had more heat than we usually find in small-town Chinese restaurants. The prices were... More

Visited for dinner. Good food and great Egg Drop soup. I would have given 5 stars but in this day and age to not accept credit cards brought the place down.

Wasn't expecting much after having been to the other Chinese places in town, but this place was a nice surprise! The service was fast, the food was delicious, and the prices are reasonable. We are 2 people and spent $20. The atmosphere is a little awkward and quiet, music would be nice. Only downside though. The egg drop soup and... More

The best Egg Drop Soup I've ever had. Sweet and Sour Chicken is amazing. Very popular little place in this town.
