I love this place. I would have never known it was there had not a co-worker told me. They don't deliver, but it's worth the drive to pick it up. The food is less greasy and just tastes a bit more authentic than your standard American Chinese restaurant. I've never eaten in the dining room there. It looks a little small and it's usually empty. If you go & like egg rolls, it's a must try!

Have heard some many wonderful things about this place and we were VERY disappointed. I ordered a hot & spicy dish. The waitress told me it was hot & spicy & I told her that is what I wanted. The meal comes, it is not even close to being hot or spicy. In fact, it had very little sauce on it. My husband's meal was just as bad. We did not finish our meals & told the waitress we were not happy with the meals.

Best Chinese food in the area. Fresh, authentic & made to order. Nothing is pre made or reheated. Very small place with about 7 tables. We've only done take out. When I went in for the first visit, the owner gave me a print out of the history of the chef. Very cool. Try this place out. I don't think you can eat in on Saturdays do to volume, so call first.

Small restaurant with a big story and good food. Take time to read the history on this chef. Food is excellent and sauces are unique and savory. Can eat in on some days but mostly takeout.
