“Wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2013

There's two menus here: one American Chinese one authentic Chinese. You have to ask for the other menus.

I recently got back from China and eating there brought me right back to all those meals I ate in China. It's the real deal. Phenomenal food. Absolutely amazing.

“Good Food, Terriable staff trainning”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2013

Food is really well cooked. My girl-friend and i stepped in and loved it the first time. The owner there is a great chinese lady. We drove from 1 hour away, just for the food. Tonight suppose to be a enjoyable classmates dinner. Everything went smoothly, we paid in cash, dinner was about $83. i paid with a 100 dollar bill. The waitress ( an old lady) suggests that i should not ask for the change, because she thinks it "SHOULD" be her tips. we left about $11 for dollar for her. After i came out from the bathroom, i heard the waitress said in chinese:" they are so cheap! they do not even have 4 more bucks? "
I was very offended, the owner should let everyone of her employees understand that i do not HAVE to pay you that much since your service is suck. I gave you $11 because i respect you like my own grandma, not because you deserve it!

“Authentic Cuisine & Very Nice Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 December 2012

Do not let the location of Mapo stop you from enjoying this fantastic and authentic Chinese cuisine. Located in the Minuteman Press mall near Wendy's. The customers are nearly all of Chinese descent; which is an indicator of how wonderful the food is. My favorites are Shrimp with Lobster Sauce and Kung Pao Shrimp. The Spicy Eggplant is also wonderful. The staff are very friendly. Also a great restaurant for take out. Food is prepared quickly with great food containers for take out. Best Chinese food in Naperville.
