    A platter of General Tso’s gleams with crisp fried chicken pieces coated in a syrupy red sauce freckled with spicy chilies. Just one bite reveals the crunchy, juicy, spicy and sweet flavors. Read more

    Excellent! I had the Thai iced tea sans milk and curry fried rice with shrimp. My boyfriend had the General Tso's chicken. Everything was absolutely delicious and the portions are HUGE!

    Word on the street is that they have a good, big old school Chinese egg roll. I have not tried it, but Foursquare won't let you save notes on places, so I'm sharing this TO DO note with all of you!

    Get these: Cold sesame noodles, pan friend noodles with roast pork, General Tso's chicken and House Special fried rice without the soy sauce. And you're good to go! Oh, and roast pork buns. That's it.

    This is one of the best authentic Dumpling Houses I have been. Huge portions of really tasty, well prepared food served hot and really good service, we were a party of 3 with 9 drinks.

    Pretty solid spot for Chinese. Had lo mein and general tso's, both no complaints, but also nothing out of this world. Warning: steamed pork buns are enormous, enough to split between 2 for sure.

    Portions are huge. One order of one dish is enough to split between two people. I suggest the Crispy Orange Beef or any of the Noodle dishes! If you want soup - go for the seafood curry!

    Best Chinese restaurant I've ever been to, hands down. Roast pork wonton soup w mei fun noodles is unreal. I also always get the lo mein and mango chicken. It's served inside of a mango!

    Walk in orders are the best orders. Food comes quickly (often before delivery folks) and you'll be more than pleased with the portion size your money buys.

    The cold sesame noodles are delicious (specially if you love PB as I do). Try also the Cantonese pork and any of their steamed buns.

    The cantonese wonton soup will thoroughly line your gut before a long night of drinking. Large portions and decent prices. Good lunch spot for take-out.

    Solid food. Get the big steamed bun. Almost a meal by itself. Every entree is more than enough for two people. Be careful!

    The General Tso shrimp was great. Plump, well prepared prawns in a delicious, light sauce. The half crispy chicken we had was also delicious.

    The beef stew with noodles is very tasty, but be warned there is at least a pound of giant pieces of chewy, fatty meat. Very hard to eat but just the broth and noodles are enough.

    Their space and portion is really huge! Their chow fun and cashew chicken was pretty good. Doesn't have that weird chinese aftertaste.

    Go for any of the noodle dishes. The lo mein noodles are perfectly chewy and the scallion beef comes with whole scallion stalks glazed in a savory soy marinade

    The food was okay. I am not saying the food is bad but the prior reviews make it seem like it was world class. But the portion sizes are it's selling point. You definitely get your money worth in food

    Skip the lunch specials as they are always poorly done. Opt for Ala carte menu items instead, you pay more but it tastes better AND plenty for leftovers the next day.
