“Excellent Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 May 2012

This has become one of our favorite restaurants in Orange County. Food is always wonderful, and the service is outstanding. We always start with the crab and asparagus soup - try it for something different! We have tried many items on the menu, never disappointed.

“Very good Chinese food at a reasonable price.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 September 2011

This restaurant has fairley authentic Chinese food, that has not been "toned down" too much to suit American tastes. The steamed Shanghai dumplings were very good and the house chow mien was excellent. We also ordered spicy pork and octopus, which was tasty but had too much celery in it for my taste and the pork was a little chewy. Very good service.

This restaurant is awesome. The food is very good. It is not too expensive, which makes it worth it. The staff is very nice and does their job well. This restaurant is very, very good.

“Another family favorite...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2008

Another family favorite for a variety of Chinese dishes. Don't order pot stickers; they don't seem to like that.
