A solid family restaurant with something for everybody. Food is Pan-Asian and American. Great home made ice-cream.

I love it here, my family has been coming here for years. They have the best sesame noodles I've ever had, which is saying something! Their sesame chicken is absolutely perfectly crunchy. The hot and sour soup is only served on weekends, but definitely try it if you have the chance. Also, the ice cream is amazing, and you can't... More

Great food and service. A local standard for years! Nice place to come with friends, family very casual. Great ice cream counter for afternoon or after a movie ice cream treat!

Mediocre Chinese food served on an uninspired setting. Service is rushed even if th place is not crowded.

I should have listened to the reviews before going here for my daughter's 10th birthday. They greated regulars warmly so I know it wasn't a language barrier. The woman who seated us was abupt and just plain nasty. I've never felt so uncomfortable. Our waiter was equally bad. The menu is huge and he rolled his eyes at us when... More

My husband and I went there one night about an hour before they were closing for dinner. While we were dining, my sister called and said she was in the area and we asked her to join us. It was now about a half hour prior to closing and we asked our waiter if it was OK if another guest... More

Our elementary aged child was literally carded to eat off the kids menu. We immediately picked up and left. Prices were very high, glad we left. I don't pay for rude.

There's a great variety of food at this place and it is all delicious. I would recommend the general tsos chicken or the lettuce wraps. Friendly staff and easily located

In 2012, at the now closed location in Nyack, seven of us had one of the best meals ever. In fact, a couple of people in our party repeatedly traveled an hour to dine at that location. The cuisine was scrumptious, the waitstaffe, ambiance and value simply remarkable! With great expectations to eat at this (Ridgewood) location, boy was I... More
