We have tried this restaurant for take out a couple of times now. It is pretty good. The shrimp in the Singapore Chow Mein has tasted fresh both time I have gotten it, which is hard to find at a lot of Chinese restaurants. My only criticism of that dish is to add more meat in general, it has much... More

Stopped in that restaurant on our travel for dinner and were not very impressed. Service was lax to say the least, our main course plates came at different times and were not as tasty as could be expected. We had selected a chicken Pad Thai and Mongolian beef (better tasting than the Pad Thai). We Will not return
