Our family used to really enjoy eating here until a couple years ago when new owners to over, now the food is horrible and most of us got what seemed to be mild food poisoning .

We ate here on Christmas Eve... The egg rolls were good, the spring rolls were not... Had almost a slimy, undercooked consistency inside. The wanton soup and hot and sour soup were nice. For the entrees we had orange chicken and Szechuan chicken. There was so much breading on the orange chicken and only occasionally did I find actual chicken.... More

I have loved Chinatown since I was a kid. They have the tastiest Chinese food in town, and also have a delightful Thai menu. Vegetarian, and Vegan friendly. Family friendly. Dine in or take-out. Order online available on the website, which worked very well. Reasonable prices. Full bar, and they have the good plum wine.

I had one of the specials - sesame eggplant. Perfectly cooked, appropriate serving size. The sauce was a bit heavy but tasted wonderful - the right amount of spice. Service OK. Fast. Pretty standard Chinese.

Restaurant is now under new ownership and they are the nicest most wonderful people! They remember us each time we come in for dinner, even if we are just getting a take out order. We are able to customize our order adding items if we want. The food is always amazing, has to be one of the best Asian food... More

I have went to this place for 30 years. They were by far the best in Rochester. Expensive, but worth it as you were getting quality food. However, they changed owners with-in the last year, are still very pricey but food stinks. Buffett is cheap, but everything is old and they will not refill. You know you are eating food... More

We stopped to get some take out last week. We hadn't been in for several months. The food was good, but not great as it once was. While waiting we learned that the original long time owners had sold it moved to another state. We used to love the crispy hunan fish - it was good this time but not... More

We ordered takeout last night. The steamed dumplings were so thick and doughy we swore they werent cooked. We tried panfrying to resurrect but it didn't help really. We also had wonton soup (almost no flavor and weird orange color) and szechwan beef (strangely tasteless with all those ingredients). We have ordered from here before and eaten in too. Over... More

We have been celebrating birthdays with the family for 37 years. We eat there every week and the place is super clean. Servers top class no matter the language barrier. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this family restaurant
