This tiny little place is probably not the best eat in spot due to extremely bright lighting but for take out was very good. The chef's seafood choice in a garlic spicy sauce was excellent and loaded with seafood.

We visit this Chinese restaurant every year and it fails to disappoint us. The shrimp (soft noodle) Lo Mein is filled with plump shrimp. The soup of cabbage and egg is delicious. The pork rice is also great.

Very yummy lunch. We had kung pao chicken and sesame chicken lunch specials. Both had extremely good flavor. Small dining area was better for us than take out back to hotel so we stayed and had good service.

Was told by several friends and family that it was the best Chinese around. But I felt my lunch special was a lot of thick sugary sauce on what was supposed to be a spicy dish. The shrimp was relatively fresh, but could have had more vegetable and less sauce or at least a sauce that didn't taste like it... More

We just happened to be in the area and thought we would dine here to see how it was. I have known of this restaurant for many years and was hesitant to dine in Shell Beach because it was so remote for me. We were pleasantly surprised. We were greeted nicely and timely, the restaurant had a nice decor, and... More

Friendly waitress, food just kind of okay. They use MSG - remember to ask them to hold that stuff. We found that out from the taste of the chicken noodle soup.

This is a very quaint restaurant, nothing fancy, but the food is amazing. The food is really fresh, comes out quickly and the service was great. I can't wait to go back.
