I've been going to this restaurant for 20 years. The same guy has been the cook the entire time and I swear they haven't raised prices in 10-15 years.
All food is prepared individually from what I can see, not from a hours-old tray, so it might take a couple minutes longer. There's one guy in the kitchen! He's the owner! The vegetables are crisp and not overcooked. The cripsy noodles always taste fresh, not days old or greasy. The war won ton soup is the best around.
I usually get the Shanghai special (S1). Or if with the SO, the Mandarin dinner for two which is a pu-pu platter, war wonton soup, two entries (somthing shrimp, beef with green peas), rice, crispy noodles.... for 23 bucks.

The furniture is a bit worn. 20 years, remember?

I use to be a costumer of this restaurant about 4 years ago It was very good.
But now is down hill. I went about a week ago with 4 co-workers we were dissapointed with the quality of the food. Pineaples did not taste like pineapples the meat was very tough. The beef and broccoli and the steam rice is excellent.
The second time it was today around 2 PM you figure no one there. The service was poor. The food quality even worst my wife didnt want to eat it seem like the reheated or the food was even tought to eat. The broccoli and beef still good. Eggroll not good very hard. They still serve lots of food and make it look attractive if you are a poor starving student you get lots of food but not good quality.
For this area the price is unbelieveble but the old saying you get what you pay for. The service beeing the only costumer was slow and with attitude my wife
never done this but she called the owner and complaint about the service and the quality of the food they did not care.
If this review doesnt satisfy you please go eat there and come back and write your own review I think you will agree with me.

PROS: The beef and broccoli and steam rice, nice service when packed/ big portion
CONS: Not very clean, poor service when its slow

This small cafe offers fast chinese food. The cafe is very nice, they even take orders over the phone so you can just pick it up. The food itself is not too bad. I like the Shanghai Fried Rice, where they put basically everything in there. The portion of the food is a lot too, especially if you eat their lunch special, they would give a enormous plate with everything from appetizer to main course in there.

So for people in need of quick food but do not want fast food, this may be the place for you.

This is a small chinese restaurant, with really good shanghai style food. They have really good prices, and the dinner special for 2 people is a good deal with appetizers and soup. I like getting take out orders from here because they have really speedy service and I can just order on the spot and have it ready in a few minutes.
