Fast. Hot. Plentiful. Delicious. I ordered Mongolian Beef... Some of the best I've ever had. I will definitely go back when I'm traveling thru again.

One of the best restaurants to get crab rangoon’s, and the pineapple chicken, I just love the taste! It’s not on the menu all the time so you have to ask for it! Portions are always way more then I can eat in one sitting.

This place is a must anytime we are in town. Everything is good, but the Mongolian Beef, the Homestyle beef, and chicken Lo mein are the best. Great fried rice too!!! And the tea is wonderful!
