“Better to eat in than to deliver”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 January 2013 via mobile

The walnut honey glazed shrimp is a must order. Steamed potstickers, war won ton soup, eggplant and Mongolian beef are on the top of the list when we order. They do something wrong like forget one item about 20% of the time when having food delivered. I think it is they can't hear when they take the order since it is always busy, loud and crowded at the front desk with people picking up to go food. Only other minus is they don't take American Express. Other than that, we love the food.

“Great place, great people”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 January 2013

If you want fluff and 5 star manucia, this is not the place for you. If you want great food, rapid service, and easy prices, this is it!!!! The small diner has 15 employees, all on the go. You are seated quickly and have no less than 4 servers helping you. Within 3 minutes your rice is served, followed by the other dishes. Food is cooked to perfection. Prices are unbelievable for the food you receive. I watched dozens of orders to go also. This place is ran top notch. The lunch special has soup and salad with the meal and is 5 dollars. Wife and kids are vegetarians and they are pleased with the quality of the veggies.

“Healthly and Tasty Chinese Restaurant”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 December 2012

Everyone in the neighborhood dines and loves this healthy Chinese restaurant. My favorite items on the menu are the Vegetarian Chop Suey and the Garlic Chicken. The restaurant is clean and is an enjoyable place to dine. Also, they provide quick home delivery service. Try out the Fortune Cookie for your next "feel good-healthly meal".

“Very good "healthy" Chinese Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

I was referred to this joint by a friend of mine, and honestly..."healthy Chinese food" didn't sound all that great. But this place is really good. We had the chicken steamed pot stickers and they were very tasty. They could definitely work on the presentation though..they looked very plain and unappetizing. We also had the honey walnut shrimp which was delicilous. We had the shrimp fried rice with brown rice and it was very good too. The service was good. It's a little hole in the wall...nothing fancy...but we will certainly go back.

“I LOVED the asparagus & shrimp with brown rice, but it's nolonger on the menu.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 January 2012

I hate it when the menu is compromised for the sake of a few $$$$. In this recession, everything got cheesier and cheesier. I don't eat there as oftennow that things had to be change.
The Walnut & Shrimp is still good as well as the lettuce wraps, but I really miss the Shrimp & Asparagus.
