“Good sit down Chinese - nice atmosphere!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2012

I've been eating here for years, whenever I am in Charlotesville. It's one of the better Chinese Restaurants in Cville, it's good quality, nice atmosphere, and nice staff. It's not your average fast food Chinese, everything is home cooked, and good quality. Highly recommended!

They have a cheap lunch buffet, and good food anytime.

“A quiet gem for a quick tasty lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2012

I have been having the buffet lunch at this place for years and it is consistently a quick and tasty lunch in a quiet location with easy parking. There are about 6-8 very good entrees - quality over quantity, reliable and pretty standard choices - several chicken dishes, a seafood medley, beef, pork, and tofu complemented by rice or noodles. This is a good place to have a quiet conversation with a friend or to dash in and out in a few minutes. or to bring a small group. They also deliver and particpate in the UVA system.

“Convenient location, helpful staff, good food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 December 2008

Easy walking distance to John Paul Jones Arena (concerts, circus, UVA basketball games), and very valuable for parking (with relatively easy exit--you might beat a lot of traffic) for events there. The food is ordinary but well-prepared: the small buffet (about 8 or 10 items) is the same every day, though the menu's quite large, and they cook things fresh. (It's really better food than the more popular Ming's, up the road.) The folks who work there are very friendly, really mean to be very accommodating.
