The condiments were on top of the world not too sweet and not too hot. Love this place. The interior is clean and sleek, the service is fast, Friendly... More

This restaurant is always friendly, whether dining in, pick-up, or delivery. The food is hot, good, and reasonably priced. The hot and sour soup is delicious and perfect for cold, wet winters night dinner.

I used to love this place along with several people at my company and we used to order from this restaurant at least twice a week. I don't know if they have changed chefs or the way they have been cooking the dishes but it is not as wonderful as it used to be.

This is a great neighborhood Chinese restaurant. We usually end up here several times a month because we know we will get consistently good food at a reasonable price. They have a list of dinner specials that are very fairly priced, and have soup, appetizer, and choice of main meal.

My family and I have been to this restaurant regularly for a number of years. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The food is always good and the portions are large. The environment is well lit and open and is never loud even when large groups are in attendance.

We come here all the the and usually the food is good. They have become more popular. Yay for them! But the new staff they hired are hurried and rude. My shrimp were rubbery-raw and inedible. When I asked for a replacement the wait-person ARGUED with me!! She finally took my lunch away, with a big sigh. Wait, wait.... Another... More

This is a regular stop on our lunch rotation! My office is in Sugar Land, and we go to this place about once a week. Service and food is very good!

Consistently good neighborhood Chinese food restaurant. Eat in or order it to go and have it delivered or pick it up. The special combination meals are a good value.
