All but one in our group had been here once before. We had a reservation which was essential since it was a busy Saturday night. We really liked the reasonably priced tropical drinks in the tiki glasses.

The fresh shrimp spring rolls were quite good though the fried pork egg rolls were over cooked. The entrees were a mixed experience with two being very good - the Lucky Family and the General Tsao's Chicken while the other two were less successful. The pork dish was tough and dry and the noodle dish was bland. The menu is huge so it could have been just some bad choices given the number of possibilities but that is no excuse for poor food. The service was reasonably good but not great.

We'd give it another chance given the many menu choices and the zombies!

Ate here about a year ago and it was good but today's lunch was not good at all. Maybe a new chef? Soup had a burned taste to it and both of our lunches were off in flavor. Chicken with Garlic had a sweet/sour taste to it and my dish was mainly all rice. Will not be returning here, too many other places to eat at that are better.

Order Hunan Chicken no fry with snow peas and water chesnuts, the best meal they make and some of the best Chinese food you will have. Scott and Staff are excellent at customer service and they never miss an opportunity to make you feel a valuable customer.

The Szechuan shrimp is my favorite! The shrimp are HUGE and you get plenty of them. The sauce is to die for! My bf and I have eaten at most of the Chinese restaurants in Rochester - and we agree that this one is the best. Also-the owner is always walking around the dining room checking on guests and making sure everyone is happy ... It's one of the few places my grandma will eat at ( she is SUPER picky)- and that says something. It's a must try!!!
