Tasty food and quick take out. The pot stickers are to die for and the Ginger Fish is amazing. We are regulars!

Simply one of the best dining experience you can have. Chinese food is second to none. Small business, owner run, non chain option. Order off the menu or have Jean (owner) tailor make an entree for an extra special treat. Don't miss this place.

The food is good and has a great selection. It is not buffet style but sit down. It is small so there could be a wait.

Jean Chen does a stand-out job of making this a personal event. How many restaurants can you count when the owner sits down with you to determine your likes/dislikes, preferences, etc. She is, totally, your host. My meal was exactly what I wanted, and the...More

Went for lunch. They have a great lunch deal, which includes an entree, rice, soup, and an egg roll. Food is good.

Stopped due to location near hotel and top 10 rating. There was inside and outside seating. This is a Mom and Pop Asian extablishment not PF Changs. Be reasonable about your expectations. The table and service were clean. The wait staff was helpful. The Cashew...More
