“Good for a cheap lunch”
Reviewed 2 August 2009

I've only been here for lunch, but have always been OK with the food. The lunch specials are cheap and of good value but they lack vegetables. They are typically not the highest quality as far as ingredients, but they are tasty and fairly quick. The service is descent if they are not too busy. The atmosphere is run down.

Really good food! They have a special (inexpensive) menu from 9:00 p.m. Try the salted pepper pork chops! The place could use some upgrades though.

Great for late night dining and stand-by for some straight forward, not too Americanized Chinese food. My mom's favorite place. Location is not fancy and can be noisy, but service is fast. A total hole in the wall.
