Ate here twice during the week I was in town for business. On both occasions, the food I got was less than what I expected.

This is the best Chinese food in West Virginia hands down!! Everything is delicious no matter how busy they are. My favorite items are the chicken lo mein, egg rolls, won ton soup and beef and broccoli.

Okay food, hard to understand when ordering via phone. I swear all Chinese food restaurants order from the sMe distributor. Tastes the same as a Chinese restaurant in another state.

Simple place with great prices and mostly take-out but they now have a dining room. I remember a few years ago when they grossed the most of any restaurant in Charleston.

The food was good. We had the lunch special with soup and entree. Obviously this place does mostly take-out, but we ate in. Even though we ate in, we were given styrofoam cups and disposable silverware and containers. We asked for water, but the waitress said we could only buy bottled water and she would not serve us tap water;... More
