We came here for a quick bite to eat. We got the Orange Chicken, a Shrimp dish on skewers and their Wor Won Ton soup. They were all excellent, but really loved their Orange Chicken. It was very good with a perfect amount of sauce to pour over our brown rice. I always like to get their soup. They give... More

How nice to find a Chinese restaurant that serves fresh food that is visually appealing with decent portions and reasonable prices. Service is efficient and friendly. I especially liked the spacing between tables with sufficient space to conduct a conversation without listening to or interfering with other customers. I definitely plan to return. Very nice.

We like coming here late at night and get their noodle soups. They give a good portion all the time. During the day, we like their lunch specials and of course their happy hour appetizers. Everything is very good here.

This is one of our favorite restaurants and we dine here at least once a week. The food is fresh and delicious and the sauces are nuanced and interesting. The service is very good and friendly, and they have a patio for outdoor and dog friendly dining. Even though the food is terrific, we usually have leftovers and that helps... More

Wednesdays are my favorite day to come to this restaurant. They have happy hour all day long with many different choices. But, they also have great food too. This restaurant has a lot of menu choices and great lunch specials. We come here frequently for lunch or a snack. It's very close to the beach, so it's a great place... More

It's not fancy. After all, fancy doesn't necessarily make for good food. There's some decor in the restaurant that says Chinese but it's not overstated. The food, however, is fine. It's fresh unquestionably. Every time we've gone, the food has been fresh and hot. The vegetables come out the way Chinese vegetables should come, cooked but crisp. The flavor blending... More

My husband and I ate at this restaurant last night. We were impressed with the service and we were very impressed with the menu and very reasonable prices. We will come back here when we want Chinese in the future.

I've eaten here probably 50 times in the last 5 years. No, really. I haven't done a review in all that time, but recently my BF and I got back from 6 weeks on the road over 5 states and we tried a lot of Chinese which made me appreciate my own little Canton in my backyard. Service is good... More
