It was good when first opened then the quality went down hill. We go to the previous Chinese restaurant since they moved next to Dunkin Donuts.

Been here a couple of times. The food is very good. Not sure why it's not very popular. Prices are reasonable. Does a lot of take-out orders while I was there. Recommend the walnut shrimp, chicken broccoli, chicken cashew and shrimp with broccoli. Egg roll...More
