“A Local Treasure - Always Pleased”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

Food is fresh and consistently excellent. They use family recipes.

Eat in spaces are limited, we typically order to go so that we can enjoy their fare with some champagne.

The menu has the standards you would expect for Chinese but they also have some steamed dishes that are wonderful, flavorful and healthy.

We try to do this at least once month.

“Neighborhood fan”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

We are lucky to have such a wonderful Chinese restaurant just a few minutes away from home. I have heard that people from farther away (places like Simi Valley) even come here because the food is so good! This is a small family-run establishment that runs a brisk business, even with its limited space. Much of their business is take-out (what I usually use them for); due to the congestion inside, many people that order take-out wait outside, and one of the staff will bring your food out to you when it is ready. They do have outdoor seating and heater to make the wait more comfortable. Jennifer, one of the owners, is extremely friendly and efficient, and she ensures all customers are happy. Last but not least, the food is delicious!

The food here is fresh, flavorful, and delicious. We have only taken it out, so I can't comment on the atmosphere.

“A hidden gem that has awesome owners!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

This is Newbury Park's hidden gem. My husband and I eat here often for lunch and dinner. For dinner you may need to wait for a seat as tables fill up quickly but the food is worth the wait! Jennifer and her husband are the sweetest people. Ask them to order from the secret menu or ask them to order for you.
