Price was right but nothing else. Egg drop soup had a burned taste. Egg roll was rubbery. Garlic chicken had a nasty sauce.

Wife and I each had $11 dinner specials. Included soup and egg roll or Rangoon. Everything was good, not great. But fast, reasonable, and friendly.

I'm not the biggest fan of Chinese food but theirs is really good. I usually get the flaming hot plate of vegetables or chicken. The dumplings are really good too. It's not a fancy place but definitely worth a visit

Some people might hesitate to visit the 16th/Arlington area, but it's really not that bad, especially in the day time. It is most definitely worth the trip. This is the best Chinese food in Indy. I had the General Tso's Chicken, the hot and sour...More
