Went there for lunch and the chicken looked like strip bites and was near burnt. The egg rolls are not egg rolls they are spring rolls and should be called such amd were burnt as well.

This is my favorite restaurant on 421. Don't get turned off by the appearance of the restaurant as it is not favorable. The food always comes out hot and tastes fantastic. Recommend the Sukiyaki Chicken. Very inexpensive for the amount of food you receive.
