I've been "trying" this restaurant for over 5 years. They just can't seem to get it right. The sauces either all look or taste the same or they add strange ingredients that I'm not used to in particular dishes from most other Chinese Restaurants (like green peppers in the General Tso's Chicken and something -- mushrooms, I think -- in the egg drop soup. ) They don't drain the broccoli in things like the Sesame Chicken, so you get tons of water in the sauce in your take out container which ruins the entire dish because the sauce has no flavor with all that water. There isn't any consistency except that you can always expect to be disappointed in something. Many times, things are way too "greasy", and my last Foo Young from there had gravy that tasted absolutely rancid. The prices are too high for what you get. I'd rather drive to Newport to the Chinese restaurant there than purchase anything else from this one. People eat there, but in my opinion, there are much better places around. Many times, they close before their posted time because they are slow. This place is just hit or miss. I think we've had a "hit" once and the others have been misses, so we have basically stopped going there now.

PROS:
CONS: Prices high, poor quality, no consistency

the best food around here eat there you will enjoy it each time after time

Pros: great food, fast servies, good price

Cons: its to far fore take, for us

As one of the very few local eateries in this area, college students and town residents alike make this location a place for everyone to eat. There are a small amount of tables, a cheery decor (white, and oriental) and friendly staff. Service is extremely quick (I usually get my order in 15 minutes or less) and the helpings are generous. Located in the business park, you'd never know it was there, but everyone who lives here knows about it. Medium prices (avg dinner price is $9) with wine available by the glass. For those concerned, they cook without MSG. They also no longer do delivery.
