Great place for a quick lunch meeting, the staff is always glad to see you and friendly. The food is well prepared and is always steaming hot when served. If you like oriental food you have an extensive menu to order from that sometimes is hard to decide.

We meet here twice a month at least for a Company employee meeting, each person can order what they want for lunch from the nice lunch menu and everyone seems to enjoy it and some usually have some left over to take home.

All the entrees we have tried are above average in quantity, and excellent quality ingredients. Good service, clean (restrooms, too) and always fresh flowers at the front desk. Very friendly, too. We will be back.

We had seen a great review in the local newspaper so decided to try this restaurant for lunch. There was ample food for lunch of good quality and a very good price. What was missing was anything interesting in the menu. The variety on the lunch menu was poor: no noodle dishes, no imagination in the seafood or meat. We... More

It's not "top of the heap" - but for the price, it presents a good, solid value. The service was first rate, with dishes cleared promptly, and refills done continually without seeming intrusive. The desert bar - well, it's there.... Their sushi IS good, with an excellent variety without anything really being "over the top" in terms of being too... More

This was our first time eating here and all of the food was delicious. Service was excellent and food served very quickly. The owner prepared a special dish for my wife which she had requested. Extra rice was given at no extra charge. Restaurant was decorated very nice and tastefully to enjoy your meal in an aesthetic setting. We highly... More

Quiet and relaxing place for lunch with mostly inexpensive prices and some pretty good choices on the menu. The lo mein is pretty good here and used to be plentiful in terms of the amount of noodles served. Has there been a shortage on noodles lately? Is there an embargo on Chinese food ingredients that we missed? Not sure what... More

You're not going to find exotic fare here or even things like duck noodle soup, but what draws people is the lunch specials that are as inexpensive as you might find in a no-service Chinese take out place. Instead you get the choice of a number of typical Chinese dishes, soup and an egg roll for under $7 at the... More

Nice restaurant in a strip-mall. Large number of menu items. The "Kung Pao Chicken" could have used more seasoning for my taste. The "Broccoli with Garlic Sauce" was very good.
