As an overall restaurant experience, I put these guys right around average for a Chinese restaurant. I'm pretty sure that I've always had their Mongolian Beef and it's good (and consistent). Not the best I've ever had but certainly not bad.

I love this place. It has been in business forever. My parents used to go all the time. John and Doreen never forget a face. If you sit at the bar they actually introduce you to everyone sitting there. Their Mai Tai's are excellent! And one of the bartender's, Beth - she is a bundle of energy and quite funny.... More

very average cantonese food. go to Chinatown about one hour south on the Interstate I-94. Better food, more to see and good photo taking opportunities if you are traveling with the kids or want some memories of Chicago.

While at work I wanted to try a different Asian restaurant so I ordered here. The food, service, price, and proportion of food were great. The only suggestion I have is to open at 11 instead of 1130.

When visiting an old college friend, we asked for Chinese food, and he said ," I've got the perfect place". He is an expert on Chinese food, and goes there every week. This family run restaurant will know your name by the time you leave. Portions are huge, tasty, and they accommodate any allergies and preferences you may have.

My husband and I love going to this restaurant. The food is excellent and we are always made to feel so welcome. The egg rolls are fresh and have lots of small shrimp in them. My sweet and sour chicken has real pieces of chicken not left over chicken parts. The Chinese tea is hot flavorful. We drive over 10... More
