Hot and Sour soup can vary in taste, other dishes can be made as hot as you like....had the Hunan chicken. Fried Rice pretty good also. Specials can vary in quality but not disappointing. Mostly take-out...there are tables but you still need to... More

My wife and I did take out last night. We had Hunan Chicken and a large Hot and Sour soup. It was terrific and the price more than reasonable! The menu we saw on the internet was unstated. I picked up a "real" menu with the food and found it to be extensive!

We just moved in nearby and wanted to check out the good Chinese in the area and really enjoyed this place! It's definitely more of a take out than sit in spot, but it's great to have it in the area!

Always the best- never fails! They know us by name, and with good reason- they are simply the best takeout chinese in Charlotte! (Ask for no eggroll in the combo and they'll give you double rice!)
