I have been here several times, and the food is consistently very good. Everything is hot and fresh, and they will even tailor the spiciness of dishes to your preference. I would definitely recommend this place.

Although it has been some time since visiting here, I would not recommend it. Did not care for the food, nor the service and lack of cleanliness.

This restaurant is nothing fancy: a cinder-block with a small sign. The food and service, however, are another story. The waitstaff is gracious and helpful, and the food is very good. The egg drop soup was good, and the crab rangoon made us realize how bad most restaurant's crab rangoon is! We got 4 dishes: beef with broccoli, beef with... More

My co-workers and I usually stop for dinner here every week or 2. It is the best Chinese restaurant I've found in the area. I always get the Thai Basil Chicken special and I'm always happy. I always have leftovers too.

Our family just loves this place. The portions are great and the quality is the best of all the local Chinese Restaurants we have found so far. The service is a little slow at times, but that seems to be more because of the amount of diners and carry-outs. (They do a tremendous carry-out business). We have picked up carry-outs... More

Have dined in a few times and picked up carry-outs a couple times. I would have to rate their egg drop soup as the best. Plenty of 'stringy' egg strings and not as 'corn starchy' as most. The color is a slightly yellowish/orangey which I like. The almond chicken choices are stir fried or crispy. I get the crispy with... More

I prefer the Chicken with Spicy Ginger and Garlic Sauce. I always order takeout because I only work a block away but I ate in last week and the lunch was so much better. The chicken is thin sliced and moist cooked to your desired heat. Plenty of food for lunch at a fair price.

Servers are always nice and the food comes quick and streaming hot. I recommend the chicken with ginger and garlic sauce. Lunch special comes with soup and spring roll. I've also have tried the pad Thai, delicious as well. The best in Livonia.

The menu is varied and the food was very good. The price was also reasonable. For a mid-week lunch the restaurant was quiet and nice.
