this place is BEYOND awfullll! The quality of food is equivalent to the fast food shop below it except you'll be paying 3 times as much!

I was shocked that it could be that bad considering there was a decent crowd there. Definitely not acceptable. Do yourselves a favor and go elsewhere. seriously.

Not a great dining experience at all. We ordered Hot & Sour soup that was OK, but the eggrolls were swimming in grease. The sweet and sour pork we ordered was not good at all - the sauce was a thick, sticky paste at best and the meat was

I've eaten at this establishment twice and the food was horrible both times. My wife wanted Mongolian BBQ but with tofu substitued for the meat. The waiter suggested another dish that had tofu and said that it tasted just like Mongolian

With help from our elderly waiter we had a great lunch. The prawns were fresh and very tasty with oyster sauce and vegitables. The potholders were an experience. Chinese ravioli stuffed with meat surprize. Cashew chicken was all white meat
