The service wasn't perfect, but the food was very good! I will be back to try the Grandma's special. Large portions and in and out pretty fast without being rushed.

Very popular spot considering how busy it was for lunch crowd. Also well liked by local oriental population. Large serving for 6.99 lunch pricing. Hunan Shrimp was a bit salty but had right amount of heat. Chicken & Cashew was flavorful. Plates where cold so...More
