We took home food for dinner. It was O.K., but not great. The egg-drop/wonton soup was good, the pork egg rolls and scallion cake not-so-much (both were dripping with grease and not very flavorful). I tasted the seafood pan fried noodle and the vegetable mei fon. Both were O.K., but nothing to cheer about. I was glad that it didn't... More

This used to be a staple for Chinese in our HH . Then the quality and quantity took a dive and the prices went up $2.00 to $3.00 per dish . We had only ordered take out ( we had gone there for at least 15 years ), the eat in area is dated and sometimes not neat at all... More

Hubby and I stopped for a quick warm bite after taking the train home from NYC. On a cold Sunday night the food hit the spot. We both got the combination platters one beef and one chicken with mixed veggies. Decent food in a pinch!

We tried here because it's the closest to our home. Asked for no onions in everything and there were onions. The crispy noodles for the soup were the stale mass made baked kind, not the fresh fried ones. Eggroll wasn't good, the rest of the food was ok, once we picked the onions out.

Exit 8 on the NJT, then not too far off the beaten path, so it's easy on/off if you're looking for Chinese (we were). Kind of bland and sweet, but that's better than too salty...add soy from the sauce counter if you need a sodium fix...several sauces available. Bathroom was clean but watered down soap and empty paper towels. Very... More

If you are looking for a good place to get basic Chinese dishes, this is it. The egg rolls, Szechuan Wontons and boneless pork are all good appetizers. Our favorite entrée is the General Tso's chicken. It is possibly the best we have ever had anywhere. You cant go wrong with any of the basics but I also recommend the... More

My wife eats her multiple times a week and absolutely loves the food. It's a small little place built for take-out, but it does have some tables if you're looking to eat there. They also deliver within about a 15 min range. Great place for Chinese food!

Food was not especially well seasoned and certainly not memorable. OK place to go if you must get a meal fast and take it out as there is nobody else close by to offer Chinese food.

Unless you head out to main street in Hightstown and its about the same. Middle rating because theres nothing to compare to. But not a bad place, you get what you pay for and the owners are a good family.
