I had lunch here during the week. Popular spot. The lunch special is very reasonable with a large selection. I had fried veggies with steamed rice and a spring roll, hot tea for $6. The staff are fast and friendly. Decor is kitschy. Locals favorite.

Food is basic just like any other Chinese restaurant nothing special the service is good enough to get your food the staff is kind hard to communicate since they don't know English. My favorite is the beef fried rice and Wong tong soup and the oil Chilli. The main owner could be a lil nicer.

There were 6 of us so we ordered the dinner for 6. There was a crazy amount of food and the flavour was out of this world good. I would rate this as one of the best Chinese food taste I've ever had. We asked to have the soup portion split into one hot and sour and one seafood. They... More

We shared a variety of entrees and everything was delicious. The best tasting dish however, was their soup! The wonton soup is so good with vegetables and deliciously fresh wontons. This place is worth a visit.

The prices are amazingly low for the amount of food given. You could, and my wife and I often do, get enough food for 2, and only get 1 entree'. Love the feeling of this Chinese home style restaurant as well. Please eat here.. you wont be disappointed..

I'm not sure why people hate the decor here so much. Yes it's tacky; so are fortune cookies; it's all part of dining in a cheap Chinese food place. We had egg rolls, lemon chicken (deep fried balls, not whole breast), vegetable chow mein and snow peas with water chestnuts. All dishes were fresh and hot, large portion sizes, very... More

The strip mall is unimpressive and run down. The interior looks like somebody's idea of a bad Chinese joke from about 50 years ago. For some reason they send out a guy in an apron to greet you who speaks no English.. We love it!! Whenever we have out of towners we take them to the city that care forgot... More

The food here is good and very inexpensive. The atmosphere is a different story. Very dated and old inside. Ceiling look like it has been through a war. Yuck! Needs updating. Very inexpensive lunch specials!

Being local has it's benefits. The lunch special is so much food at a reasonable price, you can't beat it. Pick up & go is the usual way we do dinner, but when we can, lunch is the way to go. I've read other reviewers having problems with the decor, building, staff, etc..My advice, get over it, and just enjoy... More
