They seem to use different recipes at their different locations, the food doesn't even look the same. When I went here the food was in cubes and tasted bland. Wasn't horrible but definetly other places I would rather go to. Seems busy so other people must like it.

When I'm in the area this is my goto place to get my chinese food fix. During lunch they offer 2 or 3 specials apart from their regular menu. I always order the the empress shrimp. It comes with 1 spring roll and 1 crab rangoon and soap. I usually just get 2 spring rolls. My son also loves this... More

We get carry out at least once a month. It is the better choice in the Waukee/Urbandale area. Good value as price is inexpensive so we don't get too picky in the taste. Never had s bad meal.

Normal Chinese lunch. 6.00. Crab Rangoon were hard and fair not good or great but ok for lunch. Girl taking orders was rude and abrupt. Just asked a question about what came with the lunch and she was rude like it was a big bother that I was going to buy food from there. The Orange chicken was pretty good.... More

Tried this strip mall Chinese place and wish I hadn't. Crabby service and bland food and within and hour it went right through my wife and I. It's cheap and it was hot when served. That's the only positives. We eat Chinese 2-3 times a week and this will never be on our list of places to go.

Food is typically priced from $5-$10, but the food is so fresh and hot and never dry. The Kung pao chicken is excellent. Waukee location is better, but this place never disappoints.

Fast, delicious, cheap. What could be better? NOTHING! There's a reason they win the Cityview awards for best Chinese Take Out. They are THE BEST!

This is low on The Ambiance Scale but the food is good, priced right and a good value. It is consistently good and the people are nice. A lot of people seem to like it as it is usually crowded at lunchtime during the week.

Best Empress chicken I have had. For a small strip mall place you would never expect the quality of food that you get.

The people are always nice and the soups are super sized. Nothing is wrong with this restaurant, just nothing stands out as amazing.
