If you are looking for a great sit down Chinese place, this is the one to go to. It is a bit pricey but the quality of the food is phenomenal.

The restaurant has a very nice atmosphere, and the food and service were very good. The portions were large for the prices. The menu offers a full range of choices. We started with the crab rangoon appetizer which was excellent. Our party of five chose...More

We picked up carry outs, and this food was inedible for most of us at the table. We sure don’t understand the good reviews. We won’t be going back.

My son and I had lunch here today. The food was great. The service was very good. We were just sorry that we didn't order the Sizzling Rice Soup, but we will the next time. The neighboring table ordered it and it smelled divine.

This is our go to restaurant. Their lunch is reasonably priced, and you get a lot of food. Dinner is great too. The meat is all good quality, nothing weird. My favorite items are the sizzling rice soup,and mongolian beef!

Wide variety of Chinese Dishes, well prepared (no indigestion :-). Nice decor. Attentive wait staff. Good for large groups where we order Dinner for one less than number of persons plus extra egg rolls & soup which gives all plenty of food.

You have to try the Mongolian beef. It is by far the best I have ever had. Also the egg rolls and crab rangoon is pretty good. The sizzling rice soup is worth a try too. First class food for a really good price.
