Yesterday was my second visit for dinner at this restaurant. The menu is quite diverse, and the food is delicious. The portions are quite large. Please note that this is not a fancy restaurant. Rather it is a small, casual but very good neighborhood restaurant.

Try the house lo mein. Mine was excellent and the taste was superb. The egg-drop soup was great also.

Been multiple times with the family. Kids like it and all the menu items we've tried have been very good. Owner is usually there and he and the staff are always very friendly.

I had this for delivery. First off the chicken chow main was the worst I have ever had. The sauce was soupy and not thick like other places. Hardly any chicken was in it and the looks weren't appetizing. It didn't taste good at all. The spring roll was decent. Fried rice was just okay. I have had better fried... More

Whenever we visit family in Richmond we always treat everyone to a take out feast from yum yum good. We usually get several starters or soup and a good variety of main dishes. All dishes are excellent, each has a distinct individual flavor. The cooks here make sure that the sauces are well made. Everyone likes the fried rice! The... More

Very very nice people. That being said, we will not be going back. We had chicken, beef, and shrimp, all three were over cooked and tough to eat. The general tso's chicken did not taste like any other I have ever tried, and not in a good way. The orange beef sauce tasted more like honey then anything else. Again,... More

Up until about 5 or so years ago, this place was really good. However, now this place is nothing more than average Chinese food and that's really disappointing. The owners are the same, and the friendly man will greet you each time you go, however, they clearly got cheap on their ingredients and now order the frozen off the truck... More

Everything speaks old school about this restaurant. The little things. The note in the back that says if it is not on the menu just ask they will make it. The bowl with fried noodles (with refill) with the duck sauce and the explosive Chinese yellow mustard. My daughter wanted Chinese food we spent the day sweltering in the heat.... More
