Your basic Chinese restaurant. But in a small town like Charles City, not bad. I enjoyed the meal and the service was good, and fast. Wirth a try.

I love this place and always eat here when in town for work. I usually get some kind of chicken dish. Their egg drop soup and egg rolls are very good also. Not a buffet. The food is made to order, so it is fresh.

My favorite Chinese restaurant in Charles City. The food is very good, and the menu is large. Usually not packed with people, Chinese food appears to not be a favorite of the locals.
