I was shocked at the size of the portions that we got, and on the plates of the other diners. The service was friendly, but a tad slow. The food was hot and fresh, and tasted great.

This may be some of the best Chinese food I've ever had. If you're in Oroville, stop in at Charlie's tong fong low...since 1912!

Easily one of the best Chinese restaurants north of Sacramento. Everything is cooked fresh when you order. Portions are very generous at lunch and dinner. The service is always great and take-out is a breeze !!

Love TFL but the quality of the food is intermittent. Sometimes 5 star, other times 2 star. Hope consistency returns. When it's good, it's scrumptious.

The restaurant is still owned by the same family but no longer has booths. Several years ago they expanded into the former store next door. I've been going there for the last 20 years and the food has remained the same... More
