“Nice Time”
Reviewed 10 November 2013 via mobile

We went here for the first time in about 20 years, still looked like I remembered what I could. Really was not real busy but the food and service was very good , could use a little TLC on the place. I did enjoy the place and am glad we went back.

“Great atmosphere and food!!”
Reviewed 14 July 2013

This place is so neat. It's an older-style building, complete with stained glass accents, an impressive bar, and banquet rooms. They also have a neat fountain at the entrance. The owners/employees are very nice and attentive. Our favorite dish is #39 - the Vegetables Dinner. It is delicious. The bathrooms are on the lower level - so for handicapped people that may be an issue. My only complaint is I wish they would play the oriental music. Parking is in the back! Fortune cookies included! :)

“Repeat Customer - Best Egg Rolls and Fried Rice; Wonderful Owners”
Reviewed 6 July 2013

The building originates from the older Wagon Wheel Resort - the owners are sincerely some of the most wonderful hosts we've met. The husband's family has ties to other restaurants - friendly, kind, welcoming. Dinner servings are generous and we usually get two meals out of one dinner. The fried rice is something you must try - I've never had it like this anywhere else - it's not just mixed with soy sauce; it's excellent! Their spicy is not authentic Schezwan - if you want heat - you'll need to ask for extra spicy. The egg rolls are also unlike anything you've had before - they are thick and another must try. Their homemade sauce for the egg rolls top off a tasty experience. If you get your meal to go - be sure to ask for their homemade sauce to go too. Lunch is reasonable - around $6 will provide you with hot tea, soup - egg drop or hot / sour with green onions, (add an egg roll for about $1.20 each), lunch serving with a side of fried rice. This place can't be missed - there are single tables, tables for 4, and tables for large parties. The spacing allows for a comfortable and casual dining experience. I just can't say enough positive things for this establishment.

“Best Chinese restaurant”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

They offer wonderful appetizers, especially the egg rolls and shrimp toast. Realistic Chinese menu, with lots of choices. Best deal is the lunch menu, with smaller portions & less expensive than dinner!
