WOW, we hadn't tried this place for years, thinking it was overpriced. We ordered appetizer combo plate which was all excellent and a ton of food for just the 2 of us. I had General TSO's chicken and my husband had the Vegetable Fried noodles....More

We used to order the take-out from time to time. It was never great in my opinion but it was only Asian option in town. It was similar to mall food-court quality except for they don't have the traffic walking by so their food isn't...More

Ordered several food selections recently for a meal with a friend who was visiting from out of state. Our guest was shocked to find a piece of metal in the food. It was in the vegetable fried rice. Luckily, she noticed it before ingesting. What...More

Wonderful atmosphere. Impeccable and friendly service. Pot stickers are the best ever. Kung Pao chicken -- delicious -- same with diced chicken. Very reasonable prices

The great food and service will keep me coming back for many years. A Northfield classic, it also comes at a good price. I've had no issues with the food, and have friends who have been on the preparation side of the restaurant as well.

The food is great and of quality as well. HappyTrvlrMn, in another review, accused the restaurant of using expired products, but my brother worked there for multiple years and has always said that everything is top notch quality. Just because you don't like the food...More

Tried several times but food is just not good. Was told by previous employee that they regularly used expired meat/seafood. Explained why our shimp was terrible and we got sick from a chicken dish. Haven't returned.

This locally owned restaurant has a pleasant small town feel to it. The owners are friendly and helpful, and the service is usually quite good. The food is tasty--their cheese wontons and sesame chicken is some of the best I've had. They also provide a...More
