My wife and I went there (again) for a late dinner. They still have the best Hot and Sour soup, their egg rolls are hand made and their cream cheese wontons have plenty of filling. The staff is friendly and accommodating. Sometimes we have their...More

first time to Bloomington, went here to have dinner. The food was good but I have taste better. They give you a very skinny glass for your soda and than when you get a refill they bring a small tin pitcher.
