Have lived in the area for about 2 years, and am still trying new places. SO glad I stopped in here! Decided to do take out. (Now have a menu to call ahead.) This is a little hole in the wall, family place. Got the Steak Singapore rice noodles based on another review, some fried wontons, and the Lemon Chicken.... More

We looked this up on the web and decided to try since we were hungry for some really good oriental food. We were not disappointed at all, and in fact are planning to go back very soon. One of us had orange chicken, which was very well done although the sauce was a bit on the sweet side, and the... More

We are fairly regular patrons of the Sumo Bowl. It's your good, basic Chinese take-out. Service is usually pretty quick and always friendly. I recently tried the Singpore Rice Noodles (beef) which I highly recommend. My husband is a fan of the chicken fried rice and fried wontons. Yes, it's fried and a little greasy but hey, it's Chinese take-out... More

I have tried this place numerous times and have the biggest imbalance when it comes to this place. The food is decent. It can be greasy and some times makes you queasy. I order the wonton soup, fried beef wontons and chicken wings. Granted they are fried, but I have had fried food that is not so greasy. The other... More

good Chinese and Hibachi offerings. Very generous servings and the owners are very nice people. Wide variety of options. Take out always ready in 15 minutes and a drive up window.

Stopped in for a quick lunch and was treated to excellent food. Very reasonably priced. Portions were huge and I had leftovers for the next day (bonus). Service was fine, nothing fancy. Recommend!

I recently had lunch here with my wife, we were visiting family in New Bern and were looking for Asian food. We saw some good reviews on TripAdvisor, so we decided to give it a shot. The restaurant itself seemed a bit rustic, there were some Asian decorations but overall it looks like it could use a touch-up. Our server... More

It's small, it's unexciting to look at and the decor is bland but don't let that fool you. The food is excellent. Large portions, quick service and a friendly staff. Good prices compared to the standard hibachi restaurants. There won't be an onion volcano or a show but the food will be great

The food and service are excellent. It's a country type atmosphere with reasonable prices. This is my "go to" restaurant. Yum!
