This is a busy Chinese restaurant with excellent food and run by a local family. While it is busy it offers great food and fast and efficient service. If you like good Chinese food this should be a local "go-to" restaurant.

I would definitely call ahead, although there is a Crispy Fried with Spicy Sichuan Garlic Sauce option under "Fish" on the regular menu. Calling ahead would allow you to clarify the meaning of "whole fish," too
