AKA "Cheap Chinese" – I LOVE this restaurant. Good portions, variety and ingredients in a meal that is so cheap you feel like you're stealing your meal. The decor is nothing special unless you like the obligatory fish tank but the floors and tables are clean.
Perfect for a quick lunch as they have many cheap lunch specials.
The service is incredibly friendly. They've promised me they don't use MSG and when you order take-out you'll be surprised by how quickly your order is ready.
Some of my favorite dishes: Stir-Fried Egg and Shrimp (just that, so simple), Sizzling Rice Soup, Kung Pao, Tangerine Chicken (has dark meat in it though) and the Iced Jasmine Tea. They serve it in a seemingly endless cold teapot. Delicious.
Ample street and free parking lot. Closed on Sundays. No delivery but can call ahead for take-out.
Pretty Good for Being so Cheap – I think the former reviewer meant $3.95 lunch special, not 395 lunch specials. They actually have 18 lunch specials and the price is a bit higher now, but you still get a good amount of food for under $5. The special include the entree, fried rice (very lightly fried), and a wonton chip. They were quick and there were even spaces to be found in the parking lot. There was also ample street parking.
wont believe it. – 395 lunch special thats better then any chineese food ever eaten. The oil is what makes the food taste good. they make it fresh lite and ridiculously cheap. forget all the other chineese places youve been to. save the cash forget the ambience and go and eat some Kung Pao chicken!!! Day after day the same people are there nd they know to keep it a secret. The food is gourmet by any nature and youre lucky to have experienced this phenomenom know between my friends as the DRAGON!!!!!!!!
