TripAdvisor is totally wrong, this is best authentic Chinese restaurant around here. Forget about those America Chinese food , Japanese Chinese food, they are not authentic. This is taste like china town flushing.

Always a classic this establishment has catered to students for decades. Typical Chinese dishes abound as do fresh bar drinks. A place to celebrate or just meet friends for good cheap eats.

I like this restaurant for good Chinese food with great prices. We enjoy it as a family. It is sometimes difficult to communicate with waiters.

Definitely worth going and in my opinion is the best Chinese in Amherst. The place is usually full of college kids, but it makes for a fun atmosphere. They have a combo of Japanese and Chinese. Definitely recommend
