“Never bad!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2012

Always great service! Great food! I love, love, love the shrimp toast and chicken in hot garlic sauce! They still serve complimentary hot tea! Just a nice place to dine.

“OK American Chinese restaurant at a prominent spot”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 February 2012

It's interesting how "Chinese" food is served here. It is better to describe the food here as "Fusion with Chinese influence and Chinese ingredient". The utensils and plates say everything, since you don't see those kind of items in a Chinese restaurant in Flushing, NY.
And overall, the food is good and tasty, if you are not judging it using stringent Chinese food standards. And interestingly, you have Americans serving you there, instead of Chinese you traditionally find in Chinese restaurants.

“Poor Service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2009

I recently had surgery and had asked my husband to go and get take out from Lam's. We had been there several times and really enjoyed it. We live about 15-20 minutes away and when my husband got home, they had given him the wrong food. My husband had to go drive back in with our two kids in the cold and they didn't even offer to give a discount and when my husband asked, the manager said "no". I then went to China Panda across the street and the food was much better with better prices and much better service. Obviously they don't care much for their customer satisfaction.
