“Great Chinese food without the heavy sugar.”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

This is a quaint, mom and pop type Chinese cafe. The atmosphere is definitely cafe style, but the food is great and so is the service. It's the best Chinese food I've had and they bring the food dish by dish rather than all at once. This allows your table to not be overloaded with everything at the same time. The sweet and sour pork is just that, and without feeling like you're eating a spoonful of sugar with every bite. The beef and grilled onions were excellent too. A lot of food at a very reasonable price. This will definitely be our main Chinese restaurant in Emmett.

“Good, solid place”
Reviewed 21 August 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us, despite the humble appearance. They were right.
The kitchen picked up on our tastes and preferences, dosing our spicy dishes heavily with Szechwan peppercorns. Perfect. I virtually never fail to eat everything we order in a chinese restaurant, down to the last grain of rice. Here I couldn't. Not because it wasn't good, but because the portions were so generous.
Just like another reviewer, the Sizzling Rice Soup we found excellent.
I'd go back.
Not fancy, just solid.
