I had eaten here 4 or 5 years back, and it wasn't bad. Not very authentic, but acceptable. Recently ordered again from them, and both times, it was as if she made up the dish as she went along. No sauces like I've ever tasted...More

This place is a local favorite. It has a lovely atmosphere, a good menu, a moderately fast kitchen and a lovely family that runs it. My only complaint was that the food had a uniformly slightly burned flavor to it. The "Hei" Breath of their...More

Being a small town you wouldn't imagine it to have such a good restaurant. If you're a fan of Chinese please go to this restaurant. Not only the food is excellent, the owner is super nice!

Better than average Chinese food, depending on who's cooking. The eggplant and chicken in garlic sauce is their best dish, in my opinion. It is slightly more expensive than the usual takeout places but has nice booths and tables to dine in. It's almost like...More

New menu came in the mail and thought we would try again. Unfortunately, nothing has changed as to the quality of the food. This was a take out order. The 2 entrees were "mushy" , lacked texture and unappetizing. The pork in the entree was...More
