I experienced rude staff, like the other reviewer experienced. The middle age asian woman waitress was maliciously mean, bullying, taunting. She knew exactly what she was doing when she was doing it. Had never done anything to her. Just ordered the food and sat there and waited for my order and nothing else. I never used a nasty tone or said anything extraneous when ordering or anything that would be considered rude, just ordered the food, so why would she mean and taunting to someone who had never done anything to her is beyond me. Such a bad experience here. I don't know why service is so rude, when I did nothing to them.

Wow! I'm sorry the last guy had such a bad experience. The food is actually excellent--some of the best Chinese food in the Metroplex. I wouldn't call the servers rude or unfriendly, but there is a language and culture barrier. If you treat people kindly, they will normally respond in kind. If you are rude with them, don't always expect them to suck it up and put up with you. Maybe they think, Screw the tip, This guy's a jerk and I don't care (in Chinese, of course).

DON'T GO THERE!
It is the WORST service I've ever had. The food is fair but the service is SO TERRIBLE. (I think better go to KING Chinese Restaurant next to. MUCH BETTER THAN HERE.) They don't care who you are and treat you so bad because they thought they already have a lot of customers and they will treat you whatever they want. They never smile when you are ordering and they can get mad easily if you take a little bit longer to think what to order. So, be careful, if you want to go there, please order quickly and don't let them wait too long otherwise they will be angry. Today, I was insulted by the staff just because I asked for the extra stream rice. And that guy shouted to me "YOU CRAZY!, No EXTRA RICE! BUY IT 2 DOLLARS! ". I was shocked!. Why shouldn't he tell me more friendly? Acutally, I don't care for 2 dollars rice eventhough it cost too expensive for only rice. But why he shouted to me. I don't know what to say. Then, I go to talk to the owner but you know what. Not only the owner DID NOT DO ANYTHING!. but also, said "It is normal for him! and we are get used to it" OH MY GOSH! SO what, it is normal for him. So what am I supposed to do?? They are so cheap than you expected!! After that, I walk away from this restaurant and never EVER come back again! This evident happens in April, 17 , 2008.

I love the BBQ roast duck. Very tasty, crispy skin. Duck sauce is just good on anything. Sometimes, I just buy a whole duck home and cook rice for dinner. Other dishes are quite good, fried Peipa Tofu is also a good choice.
