The ambiance puts you in a mindset to enjoy authentic Chinese dishes. The food is very good, and they have a wide variety of dishes, noodle dishes and vegetarian dishes.

We ate here several years ago and enjoyed the meal then. Mr. Chin gave me a VIP card which I had kept in my wallet. So when we went this time, I presented the Card and we were given a complimentary appetizer of Pot Stickers. We ordered four different dishes and shared them, While the Seafood dish was not spicy,...

My family and I visited for a family dinner and were disappointed with the food. Mostly it just seemed ordinary and the price was a lot higher than I would have expected for a place like this one.

From what I saw, it was impressive dine in atmosphere. Take out turned out to be just another Chinese restaurant. Seafood sweet and sour soup was very good, accompanying crackers were top, top shelf. The highlight of the visit. Bettter than I have experienced before.

After a six hour drive to get to California, we needed a nice dinner out. We tried this place and were greatly surprised. Clean inviting atmosphere. Great service and food. Certainly just what we needed for our dining experience. The hot sour seafood soup was splendid. We go back again just for that.

We dined in this restaurant before we watched the Shen Yun show and was amazed! We love the ambiance and unlike some Chinese restaurants, we actually ended up being here and getting out without our clothes smelling like Chinese food :) We are surprised how the Pu-Pu Platter is something that's so elegantly served. You should definitely try it!

I have never been disappointed at Chins. The triple sesame delight was to die for and the hot and sour soup won't do you wrong. The wait staff were awesome.
