This has been my go-to Chinese place for almost a decade. It's a family-run business and they offer great food in generous portions for reasonable prices. You won't find better Chinese food on this side of town. Only downside is that they don't deliver.

Been there many times. I have tried several dishes and have always been pleased. The prices are reasonable and the portions are generous. They will remain my go to for Chinese takeout in the area.

Stopped by for dinner. Ordered the roast pork with Chinese vegetable that also came with white/steamed rice. The food was ok, nothing special and the portion was rather generous. I do like the roast pork. They used to not allow dine in (only takeout orders) but as of Fall 2022, they do allow dine in now.

It was ok. I'm definitely not thinking about my next meal there or even ordering the same thing. I ate here for the first time today. Maybe I'll go back just out of curiosity once I get over the smell of course. I don't know how to describe it exactly but when you first walk in, it does kind of hit you in the face and make you wonder if possibly you could overlook it and just maybe the food is great or good even. I had the General Tsos. I wasn't exactly upset, just surprised. My meat tasted like it had hot sauce on it. It was not a version of General Tsos I had ever had before and the pork fried rice was decent. The egg roll was greasy as egg rolls tend to be but I've had greasier so🤷‍♀️ not bad I guess, pretty basic. Till next time...maybe

Food was fresh and delicious. Dining room is minimum and basic, it’s best to get takeout.

I frequent this place when I can, and I'll explain that more in a moment. I call in my order and they usually have it ready very quickly. I usually get appetizers that include egg drop soup, which is great, teriyaki chicken skewers, which are awesome, and the shrimp egg roles, which are some of the best I've ever had and I usually have to resist ordering a million of them. As far as an entree goes, I usually get lo mein of some kind or pepper steak, among other items. The food is always fresh, cooked really well, and just so freaking delicious. It's not the hot, greasy garbage most places serve up as takeout. I ask for some modifications, such as adding broccoli or getting my entrees extra spicy, and they always oblige. I never have to guess if they've made the modifications, as you can see in the photo of my extra spicy pepper steak with added broccoli. The cost is still super, super reasonable even with rising prices everywhere. I'd highly recommend trying this place out. The only knock I have on this restaurant is that they're super wonky with their hours. I believe they have defined hours on their menu, but I feel like they're always randomly closed. I'm not sure why that is. I believe it started during the pandemic, which makes sense. It has somewhat of a chick-fil-a effect of making me want it more lol. There's no voicemail, so if they aren't there the phone just rings perpetually. But, even with that it's still somewhere I would definitely recommend getting takeout at!
