My husband & I have been here several times over the past few years since this location opened. Our food has always been great. Portions are very large, so we generally split a meat dish, & an order of fried rice (along with 2 egg rolls). We always have plenty of leftovers for another meal each. Prices are a little high, but in line with similar restaurants. (If you break it into 4 meals instead of 2 like we do - it's pretty reasonable after all.)

Service is usually great, although we have had one visit with poor service when it was really busy.

Atmosphere is okay...a little disappointing. All the previous locations had more of a typical Chinese atmosphere (Chinese lanterns, wishing ponds-with fish in them, typical Chinese décor), and this one is ultra modern. If not for the menu and wonderful aromas, you wouldn't know it's a Chinese restaurant. :-( Although the restaurant is a decent size, it feels pretty cramped, as tables are very close together. Not much room to walk around. It is also very busy & loud.

I enjoyed my lunch of lemon chicken with fried rice, egg drop soup and egg roll. I have come here numerous times over the past year. It is a big step us from panda but not as awesome as some other nicer sit down places. It is reasonably priced and the service was quick. I will be back for sure. Good quick lunch.

Thank vyack

Ordered fried rice, lemon chicken, and steamed fish. The fried rice had an abundance of oil in it. Fried rice is suppose to have enough oil to coat the wok so the rice doesn't stick, not to be swimming in it. The lemon chicken was a fried chicken breast with sauce on the side. The real lemon chicken is suppose to be served on the bone with the sauce incorporated on the chicken. The steamed fish was tilapia. Absolutely terrible and over priced.

This place gets a lot of buzz because it has dim sum, but half of it is the frozen variety that you could just buy yourself at the Asian grocery store. It's nice that they offer it, because most place in S.A. don't, but it's nothing special. The remainder of the menu is slightly better quality than stuff that you would see at Panda Express. Nothing particularly authentic about it. At least its cheap. This place occupies the space between low rent Chinese buffets and over priced, Americanised Chinese restaurants. Can't really compare it to really Chinese food, because it's a facsimile.
