This is cheap and cheerful but tasty Chinese fare. The service might not always be excellent but hey, this is not a five-star restaurant and doesn't pretend to be one. They have a special section on the menu, dedicated to a health-conscious diet, so you'll probably see a lot of bodybuilders and gym types in the restaurant particularly at lunch... More

Really love the sweet and sour chicken with pineapple chunks and peppercorn chicken. This is our go to spot for a quick lunch bite or take out and watch a move at home. The service is fast and the tables and restaurant is always clean. They always have our food hot and ready for us to bring home after a... More

I had roaches in my food!! Omg and my drink! I was not only disgusted but surprised that they didn't offer to take off my meal or discount my ticket! Horrible! Need to inspect their kitchen!

Clearly placed order which was repeated but when the food arrived it was incorrect. After taking several bites of my food I had found a june bug which appeared to be cooked into my beef and broccoli meal. Beware of this establishment; your health is at risk!

The cafe styled restaurant was a nice change from the common Chinese buffet. The service was prompt and friendly and the reasonably priced food was hot, fresh, and delicious. A great lunch!

We have been eating here for at least 15 years and we drive from Sugar Land for their food. The BEST hot & sour soup anywhere! The vegetable dumplings are fantastic! Jade chicken, steamed chicken, sweet & sour chicken...our favorites! Budget friendly too.

I am a fitness freak and this restaurant was recommended by my nutrition coach, Keith Klein. They are very sensitive to the fussy demands of bodybuilders and their dietary needs. The staff is friendly and helpful.. The atmosphere is budget and is does not reflect any sense of style other than frugality. Still, it is a great place to nourish... More

Clean, good food, family atmosphere, plan on coming back. I expected more spice, but the flavor was excellent. Orange Chicken was absolutely wonderful.
