Food was not great but not terrible. Service was above average with very friendly staff. Restaurant was not very crowded the day we were there.

Was ready for some chinese food, and hadn't heard anything encouraging, and decided to give it a try. Was very good garlic chicken, crab rangoons, and green tea. Very pleasant staff, great service. Would definitely go again.

This restaurant reminds me of so many Chinese restaurants that were everywhere throughout the NorthEast when I was a boy. Generous portions of food served quickly and with out too many flourishes... but always tasty... and priced so that a family could dine out without...More
