We have been here a few times in the past few years and unfortunately it has gone downhill. During our visit last weekend, we experienced the owner's dog running around the restaurant which is seemingly unhygienic. The WORST part was the hair in our food, and I don't mean one hair, there were MULTIPLE black hairs in our beef & broccoli dish! I notified the waitress who whispered an apology and replaced the dish. The manager never came over to offer apologies and we were still charged for the disgusting food. Wouldn't recommend to anyone.

We have come in there MANY times for lunch or dinner. Usually problems are not addressed. Tonight, we went to order take out. We attempted to order 2 dinners and he tried to tell me it was 46.00. I asked him why since they were 10.00 each and he said tax and delivery. I cancelled my order and said forget it. That is a rip off and honestly not worth the 1 hour wait.

Surprised to find an authentic Chinese restaurant up here. We had excellent dishes -- some new to us -- excellent service -- will definitely come back!

We have been here many times, not for their food but for the entertainment (DJ Dorien J) which is the only saving grace for this sad venue. The food is terrible and the owner in denial. We sat and watched while he argued with a customer that didn't eat his meal stating that his Lo Mein was award winning and the best in the state. Obviously delusional. The place is in need of repair and remodeling, you stick to the tables and in the dim lighting, we've watched a rat run across from the bathrooms to the back room...if you choose to go, don't waste your money on the food, drink instead!
