We found this place last week and really liked it. The service seemed good and the food as well, except for the fried rice. Today we dined here for our second and LAST time. My Mom has a permanent muscular injury in her hand that renders

Take out and delivery here is really fast and the Mongolian beef is excellent. However, those of you who've been inside know its not a place I'd recommend for a sit down meal :)

Take out here rocks. Must try the crab wontons ... those are the fav among our friends. Also good: general tso chicken (you can order white meat only on this and other chicken options) and peppered steak and lo mein and soup. Have not had anything bad there yet!

This is definitely the best chinese food in the area. The lomein is fantastic and the Gen. Tso's actually has red peppers rather than jalapenos, which seems to be annoyingly popular in Houston. I haven't gotten delivery from them yet, but our experience in the restaurant was very pleasant. Servings were generous and the waitress was friendly. We will definitely be going back!

my husband and i really like this place. we always get it to go/delivery. great food! we have tried it all from veggie, to chicken to beef to fish. all of it is good. definitely would recommend this to anyone in the area. people are nice and food fantastic. also - if you are picky about your chicken - this is the place to get it from - you can order white meat chicken on almost all chicken items. (can't do that in any big places or even chains).

TRY Golden Cafe! 2 Thumbs up!

Pros: great food, can order white meat chicken

Cons: would never know this place is good from the look of the building

The restaurant is a typical Americanized Chinese restaurant. The food tastes OK, but all dishes kind of have the same taste because the same source is used. Although the there is a big variety, but none of the dishes I have tried taste authentic. The waiters are nice and the environment is well polished though.

only thing i dislike about this restaurant is it looks run down, and the inside is okay in terms of decor.....but food is decent for fair pricing......nothing to drive out of the way for, but if you're in the area it's not a bad place to go for decent chinese food!

Maybe I'm the odd man out. I ordered delivery from this place for the first time today, and they took almost an hour to deliver; maybe a sign of their popularity, as I ordred shortly after they started delivering, and the driver had my order as well as 3 others... Crab rangoons and special lo mein were pretty good, but the "rrack of lamb" was actually cooked as chops, and arrived well done (who does that?) and bland... From what I could tell, this was pretty run-of-the-mill Chinese delivery fare.

Work nearby and was looking for a Chinese restaurant and past this one several times cause the outside doesn't look that great, but I went in and was thoroughly, pleasantly surprised! Decor is elegant with pink cloth napkins and very well decorated, clean and staff very friendly and best of all the food is quite good and very, very reasonable. This place has not become a weely lunch spot for me and I take home dinner often! You won't be disappointed.

Pros: Great Prices, Friendly staff, Nice Decor

Cons: Small parkinglot

When I first visited this restaurant about 3 months ago, I was astonished by it's elegant interior design (bc the outside looks pretty simple). The food and prices are definitely the best aspects of this cozy place (and also the free delivery service). They have a huge variety of dishes, ranging from authentic Peiking Duck (my family's fave!) to General Tso's Chicken. We also had a dinner party here (nice set-up w/cloth napkins and a large round table) where the staff was very attentive to our needs. This place, nestled in a corner of the Heights, can often be overlooked but I suggest everyone in the area at least give it a try. I love the place and the new owner (it's family-owned, with the sons helping out occasionally). I hope you guys enjoy this place as much as my family does. It's a treat!

Pros: Big Menu Selection, Cheap Prices, Prompt Service

I'm so glad we finally have a great tasting, affordable, well-serviced Chinese restaurant in the Heights. I've tried almost everything on their lunch/dinner special menu (over 30 items); all were delicious!
