Always delicious. Usually get take out but my experiences dining in have been great too. Some of the best takeout around.

My favorite Chinese restaurant in this part of NC! They have the best curry chicken and hot and sour soup that I have tasted in years! The wait staff is always extremely friendly, good at what they do and helpful.Every time I go there for a meal, I tell the owner these exact sentiments.

I used to truly love this place years ago. Their food was always great quality and clean and tasty. I love that the vegetables in the dishes are crisp and vibrant. The owners were always very nice to me and remembered me and my family and always had true conversations with me, especially the father of the family who owned the shop. They’re still pretty good but I feel maybe they changed their cooks? Possibly? It seems their food doesn’t exactly have the flavor and quality it used to. I still go to them when I’m in town visiting family though because I do enjoy their food more than some other places near by. I do wish they delivered sometimes but I understand that maybe that would play a part in altering other aspects of running the store. I do also dislike that they’re closed on Sundays. There were plenty of instances when I had a craving and then made my way there just to be reminded they’re closed on Sunday. The location is pretty convenient, there is enough parking seeing as the store is in a shopping center. It’s a wheelchair accessible location. The inside offers seating for maybe ten groups of four and maybe three groups of five or six. I’d suggest giving this place a try at least once. They’re clean and friendly. The success of your experience solely depends on your expectations and standards of Chinese cuisine.

Walked to the restaurant from Duke Office bldg for lunch . I ordered hot and sour soup and 2 egg rolls. Because. It was 89 Degrees out asked to eat in . Front counter Lady Would not let me eat in and acted as if was an issue. Will not be returning nor recommending to any other Duke employees in my clinic

I have yet to have a bad meal from here. The sesame chicken is the best I have ever had and I am not a novice to hole in the wall Chinese food. Their general Tso's is also good. Even the tofu versions of those two dishes is amazing. Dumplings are delightful and the owner (I assume) that is always working the cashier/to go is so friendly and willing to make what you want (ex: tofu dishes that don't exist). The decor is a step above usual Chinese places in a shopping center and If I didn't enjoy eating at home so much I would definitely eat in and enjoy the awesome Dragon wall. Portions are hefty at dinner time. For me it is easily two meals worth. Chicken and tofu both still crispy when I got home even though they were sealed and covered in sauce. Negative reviews maybe went on a bad night or something but i can safely say I have yet to be hit by one of those.

The pros: They make some AMAZING Orange Chicken! I will return here time and time again, just for this dish! Spicy, sweet, tangy, crispy....simply perfection! The wait staff are friendly and attentive, always willing to accommodate the smallest request and keep your beverage full. The cons: The decor is a bit tired, needing some rejuvenation (think "Big Trouble In Little China" lol). The cleanliness of bathrooms were not great, but not awful either...they need some attention. The checkout/to-go staging area could be tidied up as it is cluttered.
