Called in an order. Went to pick it up since the reviews said delivery was slow. Well, when we got there, it was not ready. As if they had forgotten the order all together. It took 10 minutes of waiting at the Restaurant to finally get the order. It was just mediocre food. Definitely not worth the wait.

We have ordered take out from here many times, we've never eaten in the restaurant. The spring rolls are delicious and the entrees that we have ordered are always good. They do deliver, sometimes the delivery is slow, tonight they delivered our food within 30 minutes which was pretty good. If we are really hungry when we order we just go and pick it up instead of having it delivered. I think that they deliver until 11pm. It is worth trying.

we ordered food for delivery at 11AM on a day when we had 1 inch of snow. We were told it would be 45 minutes. After calling four times and two hours later we received ice cold food. I was told the driver had been stuck one house down from us for an hour! He was next door and after an hour walked one house down and delivered our food. Too bad we had prepaid the bill and paid the gratuity!!!! What a joke

This is the Chinese restaurant that made me fall in love with crab rangoons. They are so good and they deliver. Yay!

That may not be saying a lot, however. If you are from the South, this may be great (unless you are from a large metro area). If you are from the North, especially if you are from a metro area, you are better off sticking with the yummy fried chicken at Wayside!
