No Mu Shu pancakes and no Mu Shu sauce. Mu Shu is just sliced veggies, light meat steamed, with no flavor added. Soups were bland. Appetizers not fresh or handmade. All meals were served to us cold and they then heated them in the microwave!...More

Good Chinese food at a reasonable price. I mostly eat lunch. Service is quick, even though it's a busy place. Make sure to get a punch card and eventually you'll get a free meal!

Kin Lin has great food at an affordable price. They've always been very quick at preparing the food as well. I love the crab rangoons and have gone out of my way to get them when I'm in town.
