I've been going since they opened in 2003 and it is my favorite chinese joint in the Shrewsbury area. My picture is literally on the wall 3 times! The food is exceptional for one of those old school, divey-type restaurants (my favorite kind)! The service wasn't always amazing but I've got to say, the son who runs the front has... More

I went to this restaurant because of the signs saying it was the best, and all of the good reviews. I was greatly disappointed. The food was not good at all. I can easily cook better Chinese food at home. It was greasy and not easily digestible. The price was good, but the food quality was not. I have not... More

I've tried many Chinese food restaurants in the area over the years, and No. 1 in Shrewsbury cannot be beat. The best General Tso's, you actually get chunks of chicken, not chunks of breading. The lunch combos are a great deal: for $5 you get enough food for two.

Great place to get Chinese food, good prices too! They have your food ready superfast and have friendly staff. They are also open daily. They are located at the start of the giant plaza on the left side

Family night and we got take out . It is really set up for take out clients. We really enjoyed the variety of selections on the menu. Great price on a budget. Clean and friendly and quick. A lot of people coming for take out. Quick service and convenient, easy to find in Giant Shopping center.

These guys no how to make quality Chinese food. That's all you should really come here for. They are friendly and have tables to eat at but it's seriously best as take out food. You'll want to reheat and eat any leftovers. Service is nice and friendly.

If I lived in the area I might visit this place once a week.. My meal was not really Szechuan rather a imitation. My wife enjoyed her tofu concoction.

The people who run this have always been extremely rude, but we've been going here every once in a while for 12 years. This was my last time. Ordered pick up, they didn't say thank you and the food was terrible. Both meals were supposed to be spicy and were not - if anything - they were sweet. The chicken... More

The food is pretty good especially for the price and portions they give you, eat here all the time. I personally like the sesame chicken.

We ate here on a Sunday afternoon for lunch. They have several lunches that are only $5. It includes the entree, fried rice and a spring egg roll. We ordered the General Tso Chicken and our plates were full. The General Tso was not spicy, but you can order it spicier. It was good. This is a small place, but... More
