“Bib big portions, rather plain”
Reviewed 23 September 2012

The portions are big. The clientele leaves something to be desired - -lot's of homeless / indigent in this area. The service is friendly and fast. Prices are low. It's OK for lunch. The taste - -well -- about average and a bit plain.

“My Favorite Chinese in Indy PERIOD!”
Reviewed 4 March 2012

The real deal, an authentic chinese carryout. I have been going there for 18 years. LOVE the shrimp mala. They do such perfectly cooked vegetables and nice fresh shrimp never overcooked. So many good dishes. They always find some hardworking competent young chinese woman to run the front desk and get the orders in and out FAST! Eating in tiny dining room is diminished by having the mission two blocks away and hobos/homeless/drunks whatever, frequently dropping in. The young woman treats them as customers if they want something, but is firm yet polite when they get stupid. Unlike Starbucks that just allows them to takeover and talk disgusting and smoke in best seats.
However, I eat in often, as I love the atmosphere of hearing mandarin spoken over the sounds and smells of a busy kitchen.
