This is hands down the best Chinese food in Rochester!! Great value and their menu is amazing- Chinese, Thai, with tons of pictures. The only difficult thing is deciding what to eat since everything looks so good!!

Let me first start by saying we have been dining here for many years and have always had wonderful meals. However, like many other reviewers have already noted, the service tends to be lackluster and indifferent. Today was probably the worst in terms of both horrible service and even worse food. Our server appeared to be right off the boat, speaking little English and having no discernible serving skills or personailty. My lemon chicken was served with "lemon sauce" that actually appeared to be a glop of lemon jello. When I asked the server, he shrugged until we asked that it be replaced. The replacement was just a tad better, bringing it up from almost inedible to barely tolerable. My wife's shredded spicy chicken was tame, with little flavor and no sauce. Perhaps a new chef? For the final half of our meal we never saw our server, and our water glasses were never refilled. Amazingly, the owner and his wife are always there, but seem happily oblivious to what is happening right under their noses.

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.
