“WARNING!!!”
Reviewed 7 March 2013

This used to be a great restaurant for authentic, deliciously prepared food. New ownership took over last week and this place is now a BOMB! In addition to the haphazard, inefficient service one usually finds under new ownership, there are other problems, much smaller portions at the same price being among the most alarming. One doesn't get a dinner plate, even, in order to share entrees, a customary practice with Asian fare. One must also ask for the standard appetizer, remind the wait staff that one has been waiting for 40 minutes, and repeat one's requests for items such as wine and complete take out boxes. Very, very unfortunate to lose the wonderful Mr. Chan's of two weeks ago.

“One of best Chinese restaurants (for a while)”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

This used to be one of my favorite Chinese restaurants, but I found another place closer to me and serves just as good if not better authentic Chinese food. This place is one of the few that cooks really fresh, authentic Chinese food. I used to always go here on special occasions for my Asian family. However, the service wasn't the best--it was slow--maybe due to our large group--which we always had everytime we came. Food is good, but you'll be paying for it--watch the menu. Plus, they automatically add the tip (for large groups) which would be like 18-20%, but several times, I didn't they they deserved such a tip. (Maybe that's why the service was substandard b/c they knew the tip was automatic?)

“Best Chinese in Jax”
Reviewed 18 September 2012

You would drive right past it in the non-descript strip mall. The place is small and unasuming. The food however is the best Chinese in Jacksonville. More flavorful and better value than P F Chang's. The firecracker shrimp are large, juicy and a little spicy. The mongolian beef is large pieces of beef with a tasty brown gravy and onions and scallions. Kung Po chicken has the requisite veggies and peanuts and spicy brown sauce. They have excellent pot stickers, spring rolls and hot & sour soup too. The Chicken Fired rice is some of the best. Curry chicken has a delicious yellow curry that in not spicy and has tons of fresh zuccini, peppers, mushrooms and onions. Everything tastes cooked to order, fresh and full of flavor.
