We moved to Indy recently and this place came recommended as a good go to Chinese place. Not fancy but super yummy and well worth the price!

We often come here on special occasions (valentine's day, Christmas eve). We always get great service and the food is hot and delicious. We have brought the whole family and have gone just as a couple. Great dinner night out! The building is old, and the decor the same, but if you look past that, you will get a great... More

Went for supper. Only 8 cars in the lot that could easily hold 50. Stingy with sauce, slightly bitter taste devoid of sweetness. Battered chicken had a slightly burnt taste. Generous sized portion with a few twigs of parsley and a carrot slice folded into a duck. No condiments on table except soy. Supper dish didn't include the usual spring/egg... More

We have eaten here many times. It's a family-owned, NOT "all you can eat" Chinese food served by Chinese-Americans who are more than just employees. One favorite is the Hot & Sour soup with pot stickers! Recently, though, I had the Sizzling Happy Family Mandarin seafood combo on sticky rice, with hot tea. My wife had Sweet 'n Sour Chicken...

Our family has been coming here for over thirty years and consent quality of the food is what keeps us coming back. James, the owner, seems like family to us and inquires about our sons every time we dine there. From the appetizers to the entries the prices are very fair. We have never been disappointed in the service staff.... More

We been eating here for maybe almost 4yrs. Dinner specials is a good value. Always taste good, from the egg roll, egg drop soup, hot and sour soup down to the main course. We always have left over to go which is equivalent for another meal for two. Waitress 2 of them are consistently very rude and unfriendly. I think... More

We have lived in this area for over 15 years, and never tried this restaurant, but it was recommended by several people as the best Chinese restaurant in Indianapolis, so we thought we'd give it a try. The food was very good, not at all greasy, which is usually my complaint when it comes to Chinese food! I had egg... More

I was sick of pizza and looking for something different- based on other reviews, I found this delicious spot. I got takeout and ordered extra, not knowing what I was in for...the tofu and mushroom soup and the wonton soup were both delicious! I ordered a few veggie dishes- the lo mein was ok, a little greasy for me- but... More

Not much for looks and at a strip mall. But suprisingly, You will find the best ever Chinese food anywhere (no kidding)! The hot and sour soup is the best I have ever tasted. It takes someone who is "looking for a hidden gem" to appreciate this genuine delight. All at very reasonable prices. Expect to be surprised and pleased.

True about rude waitress. Same thing happened to me when she asked what I wanted I asked for a menu she pointed to a 3x5 card in a plastic stand that had adult beverage choices. Small food selection on back side, how would you know? Food good atmosphere more like a hurry up and eat feeling.
