This place makes the kind of appetizers and other stuff that are great for take-out. They do have indoor seating, but they make it easy to order and pick up that we do that all the time. The food is very good for the type...More

Pretty much everything at this restaurant is delicious. They have the best scallion pancakes and the sauce that comes with them is amazing. Also, the orange chicken is beyond!

I really like this place. they VERY accommodating. And will explain dishes you inquire about. They can & will omit certain ingredients if you ask. Over all not a bad bang for your buck.

Fast service and tasty Chinese food characterize this Somerville Ave mainstay. Delivery is fast if you're not into dining there, which is understandable, as the Keno machine draws an interesting local crowd. The food and value make it well worth the visit. The bartender always...More

I like old fashioned Cantonese restaurants. And this one is in my general neighborhood so it has always intrigued me. But now that I've tried it and my curiosity is satisfied, I don't have to go back--ever. The food just isn't very good. Nothing tasted...More
