I, too, have been going to this restaurant for YEARS since I first discovered it back in the early '90s. Wendy is a great hostess/waitress and the food never fails to impress and satisfy me. For me, it's the #4 on the lunch menu that gets to me each time... Sweet & Sour spare ribs, fried rice and a huge egg roll along with the best tasting egg flower soup in the San Gabriel Valley. I have converted many a doubter when taking them to this fine restaurant. This restaurant does things the old-fashioned way when preparing their dishes. When was the last time you had chow mein that featured NO NOODLES??? Real chow mein has bean sprouts and assorted veggies. What is taken for chow mein these days is really LO MEIN (soft noodles). Here, you also get a bowl of crispy noodles to go with your chow mein or soup. I normally judge a Chinese restaurant by their sweet & sour sauce. The more effort they put into this sauce, the better that I think they do with all their dishes. They have some of the best sweet & sour in the county (my opinion)! Anyway, if you haven't gone to a really good Chinese restaurant lately, then you have to try this place. It looks like a hole-in-the-wall, but it has some marvelous food.

This place is lively as soon as we walk in the door. Wendy is a riot and very nice. The service is prompt. I recommend the fried rice and fried shrimp. Once you taste you will crave, as I do. My family has been coming to this place since we were kids! Their attitude and employers have never changed. Always a pleasure when I want guaranteed great food & service.

PROS: Feel like family
CONS: Closed Tuesdays

This place is a classic chinese food ever. The servers are great and friendly and the food is awsome. My children have food allergies and I ask them to not include those items in and they do it. They accomodate anyone and give great advise on their food.

PROS: Great food
CONS: Kinda small and gets full fast and often
