I love a good hot and sour soup. I stopped here after the good reviews I read online. Boy was I disappointed, the soup had no flavor at all just it just tasted like a ton of black pepper and salt.

We came in to find a replacment for Souel Garden which closed. We will keep looking. Clean restaurant, attentive service, reasonable prices. The crab cheese was well below par, very tiny amount of filling. :( Garlic Chicken was bland but ok Kung Poa chicken was very good. So, overall average.

Called ahead to reserve a private room for a family gathering. When we arrived we were unable to use the room and we were seated in the main dining area. 12 of us at square and round tables pushed together. Was fine, but hard to hear each other. Service was fine, food was fair.

I love eating Peking Duck when ever possible. Very happy with the food service and presentation! You had to order ahead of time. It was worth the money! The restaurant does not have other authentic Chinese foods but it's normal since there's not a big Chinese population in this area.

The restaurant was clean and the Manager greeted us as we entered. I'm not fond of artificial flowers and that being said, I'm always expecting them to be dusty. They were clean as well as the tables the floor and the waitstaff. The only thing that kept me from giving them a five star review was the servers were sitting... More

We've been here often, they have all the Chinese dishes you would expect. Their sesame chicken, sweet & sour pork, and beef dishes (Mongolian, w/broccoli, etc.) are well done. They slice their beef and their vegetables thin but there is a good quantity. We can usually get a second meal from the leftovers. They are a bit pricey for a... More

Our first time so we were excited and apprehensive. Nice atmosphere with a mild East Asian theme. The majority of the servers were also; apparently not Japanese because my language efforts were futile. A very diverse menu. I had a hard time settling on one thing. Of course we ended up sharing. I started with hot-sour soup. As good as... More

I've been a frequent flyer here for more than 15 years and it's always good. The service is average and the bar is nothing to write home about but the food is fabulous and always reliable. Love their menu!

I was excited to be in town & go to my old favorite lunch spot for dinner. The soup & appetizers were delicious, but my Hunan Shrimp was just ok & not as spicy as I've had from them in the past. I was a little disappointed, but my favorite waiter Jack was there so it made up for it!... More
