Okay we have been to this restaurant many times over the last 20 years, family ran, very friendly, decent atmosphere, but no background music. However, we have always went for the lunch specials, which is a good deal and easy take-out. Last night we decided to go for an evening meal on our date night. Greeted as usually, very friendly...

Typical American-Chinese cuisine done in a flavorful and well-done manner. Food is good across the menu and sauces are tasty. The iced tea for the table is a nice touch. Family owned and run and it shows. Everyone is friendly and it is a quiet, comfortable place to have a meal.

I've eaten here several times and always have been quite satisfied. We've tried chicken, beef and lamb dishes, all of which have been well prepared. Their fried rice has always been very tasty. And service is extremely friendly. Prices are very good given the quality of the food, and there's plenty of parking.

Fresh and full of flavor! This is one of our favorites for traditional - old school- Chinese food. Great location and always friendly staff. App wonton chips and dip are a treat as well as hot tea. Fried apps are not greasy and lightly breaded.

Wonderful food for everyone, we happened to have a starving athlete ready for delicious carbs and protein. Great Brighton Avenue location in a plaza off Exit 48. Top notch staff, quick service, great menu options. Can't wait to work way through menu. Even had Plum wine...seriously legitimate once that's established:). Yum.

A little difficult to find, (across street from Lowe's, in strip mall), but worth it. Atypical Chinese restaurant, but fare is tasty and fresh. Best lunch bargain in town. Entree, fried rice, soup & appetizer for two only $15.00. Our go to place for lunch when in the area.

Been going here for almost 30 years. Always a good lunch, and well worth the modest price. Empress chicken, crab Rangoon, and wontoon soup. Excellent!!!

I ate here with a friend, and they serve up authentic Chinese food. The food here is not the subpar, precooked Chinese food that is delivered frozen. This is the real deal. The restaurant is relatively small, but it is bright, clean, and well kept. The Service was a little understaffed (only two servers that we saw), but other than... More
