This is the best Chinese restaurant i have ever been to. And it's a really nice place that you can sit down and enjoy your meal. It's a clean restaurant and the food is consistently good.

This is the best Chinese restaurant I've gone to since moving to Connecticut. It was a great place to go to before going to a show at The Repertory Theater. I had the lemon chicken and the lemon flavor was very fresh.

Wouldn't go anywhere else. Wonderful atmosphere, always greeted at the door with a friendly hello and a smile. The service is great and fast, but if you'd like to linger, they never rush. Highly recommended
