This is our 3rd visit. In our area it’s the best Chinese food. Service is just ok. Not real warm. Yes they do the basics. So I took a star off for service. The honey walnut shrimp is a must try. The inner design is nice. If you are on this side of the tunnel it’s worth a visit.

This seems to be where the locals go for great Chinese food. The chow (no pun intended) is great and not over oiled or spiced. The service is efficient and friendly and the restaurant is roomy and clean. Worth another visit absolutely.

Very popular long time Lafayette Chinese restaurant. 6 of us dined there for dinner tonight, and it was packed. I'm not that in love with the food. Very small portions of mushu pork. We ordered Kung pao chicken, Mongolian Lamb, a shrimp dish, and a beef dish. There wasn't anything wrong with any of the dishes, but there wasn't anything memorable either. The food, in my opinion, is just OK. I do love their wor wonton soup.....especially when I'm sick!

We usually visited their restaurant in San Ramon, but it burned down in December. Now we have to drive further from home.
We tried an item we hadn't before, the duck appetizer, it was wonderful. We shared other small plates, but this was the best. For dinner we shared Mongolian Beef, Prawns with Honeyed Walnuts, and Chicken Fried Rice. It was a good dinner. Their menu has remained mostly unchanged over the three decades we have visited. It would be nice if they added some new dishes.
