We have been going to this restaurant for many years to enjoy the food and friendly service. Best egg rolls ever!! Large portions and varied menu selections. My grandkids love the food and service. The updated decor is welcome and the bar service offers wide variety. Consistently great food to eat in or take out.

I thought the quality of the food and service was poor. They push drinks, but I am not a drinker. Do not plan to return.

This place is fantastic. Food is delicious. Had the egg rolls and BBQ pork strips for the appetizers. So good. Wonton soup was really good and they give you allot of wontons... Had the sweet and sour chicken and chicken fried rice. The fried rice is the best I have eaten. I love that they DON'T put peas and carrots... More

The staff was nice on a cold January day; the food was nothing really to talk about. This restaurant didn't stand out from many big and small restaurants in this area. Only dish that almost everyone liked was Mongolian Beef, rest of the dishes were just plain okay.

Good food and friendly staff make this a nice place. I used it for take-out, but the staff was very friendly while I was waiting for the food to be ready.

As an overall restaurant experience, I put these guys right around average for a Chinese restaurant. I'm pretty sure that I've always had their Mongolian Beef and it's good (and consistent). Not the best I've ever had but certainly not bad.

I love this place. It has been in business forever. My parents used to go all the time. John and Doreen never forget a face. If you sit at the bar they actually introduce you to everyone sitting there. Their Mai Tai's are excellent! And one of the bartender's, Beth - she is a bundle of energy and quite funny.... More

very average cantonese food. go to Chinatown about one hour south on the Interstate I-94. Better food, more to see and good photo taking opportunities if you are traveling with the kids or want some memories of Chicago.
