I thought I'd give it a try since it has good reviews. I ordered take-out: Thai Basil Combination (chicken, beef, and shrimp) and a Cheese Steak Egg Roll . The Egg Roll was different from traditional egg rolls - filled with a cheese steak meat and cheese mixture. Not bad, but not a lot of flavor either. The entree contained... More

The menu offers many selections. Take out is prepared quickly; the order was filled correctly. Food quality was adequate to very good depending on the family member and menu item. The staff for take out, at least, is not overly friendly. Certainly not rude but I left feeling somewhat brushed aside. For a Sunday evening at 6 PM I wondered... More

Have had take out and delivery from Lucky's for some time. The food is always freshly prepared. It stands out from some other Asian take out/ dine in restaurants because they take chances with new specials. Look for steak and cheese rolls, pepper shrimp and any drunken noodle specials. The sticky rice and mango and vegetarian chicken are great.

I like the people there. The food is very good. It is not gourmet, but like good Chinese home cooking.(And yes, I've been to China) We order Gen.Tsao Sauce on the side. Fried Rice with Chicken and beef, Szechuan style. Ginger Chicken Green beans. The kids love the Chicken lo mein. Peking Duck is very good. As starter fried Chicken... More

Honestly, the worst service in a restaurant I've ever experienced. We had two waitresses. One said the other was the manager, but the latter denied she was. She said there was no manager, that she was merely "helping out" whatever that means. We waited for what seemed like forever for anything and everything. We had to ask repeatedly for set-ups,...

This place was empty and still it took over 30 mind to get our order. Server seemed totally clueless and overwhelmed. Food was awful. Just a bad experience overall.

We've eaten here three times and been quite happy with the service and impressed with the quality of the food. Rarely super busy in the restaurant, but the carry-out orders seem to keep going out the door. Really nice neighborhood, Chinese restaurant - especially for the middle of suburban Columbia.
