I have been coming here off and on for the past 5 years. Never disappointed. Expect to pay about $8 for standard entree. Good lunch specials. Friendly service, and the place looks a little freshened since my last visit. It is not gourmet, but it is good.

Have Been Frequenting this place since the early 1990's. They have the best Kung Pao Chicken in the City of Reno. Their Mongolian Beef is good too. Solid food for under $10.

On the positive very fast and low priced. Building is old and warn, the cashier was also making the won tons in between customers in the dining room. Overall thought the food was not that great, beef broccoli was good lemon chicken disappointed. Not planning on a return trip.

We have been in here several times. It's close to the Worldmark and the Sands. The food is tasty and plenty of it, but it is what it is, so expect fast and good, not something it is not.

Used to be THE PLACE for late night dining on cheap, tasty chinese food. Since new owners came on board quality has slipped. Its shabby and run down in and around the small building. Prices are low but don't expect much.

We stopped by in the evening for some take out. There were people coming & going so that is a good sign. A couple of patrons were asking for beer but appently they no longer have a liquor license. It's not a flashy place but the staff were friendly & helpful. We decided to just try a combination plate. The... More

This used to be a reliable place for Americanized Chinese food. But the quality has declined and the prices have gotten higher. You can eat at a sit down Chinese restaurant with much better food for about the same price as the food here. I don't know of a single dish they do that I would recommend to anyone.

I eat there at least once every week. The food can be very good, depending on the kitchen staff. The food tends to be much better in the evenings after 6, when the good chef works. The Chinese menu is very extensive and many of the items are delicious. The combination plates are the usual American Chinese dishes and okay.... More

The food was okay, but what ruined the meal was the fact that the guy cooking the food and serving it had a half severed finger with a gaping wound about a half inch wide. It was completely gross to see that and clearly not sanitary. What's more, some old lady was rolling egg rolls on the table at the... More
