Ordered takeout and was very disappointed. Chef Li used to have the best hot and sour soup, but now you can see them cutting corners. No pork in the soup, egg roll, or (non-veggie) spring rolls. The soup was not very flavorful and there was too much salt in the Moo Goo Gai Pan. The fried rice was decent. Delivery... More

Take out only. They were fast and efficient in processing our order and even offered us free drink or soup while we waited. Typical menu and very convenient to Hampton, but nothing out of the ordinary.

I love Chinese food and this is the best in Tampa bay. Always fresh and consistent it really is better for take out. Wonton soup is great ribs are food. All the other dishes come out like you would expect.

Over the years Chinese has been pretty middle of the road for me - no real standouts good or bad. But Chef Li is a standout. Hands down the best Chinese food I've ever had!

Traveled the distance for good Chinese food, and finally found one. Been going for past year, food always fresh and tasty, staff is friendly. Highly recommend it!

The restaurant itself is small and somewhat primitive but the food is consistently good and reasonably priced. Give it a try.

Each time I ordered from them I placed an order for delivery. First off, the delivery was super fast and the food was always fresh!
