I went there today on my lunch. I ordered and when the cashier ran my debit card he said it was declined, I told him I just got paid. He ran it again and it was still declined. I apologized and started to walk out. Before I reached the door, he was yelling to the other patrons" No money, no money". I knew there was money in my account so I went accross the street and went to the ATM machine. I got a $20. I went back to the the restaurant. The friendly cashier saw the $20 in my hand and asked if I wanted the food now. I told him no and that I do have money in that same account and I appreciated his comments. I understand about machine foul ups but to make comments like that is just unacceptable to me.
Not going to earn a Michelin star, that's for sure – This was my first experience with Chinese food in Des Moines. I can't say that the other reviewer is wrong in ranking it the "best in the South side", but if that's the case, pickin's are slim. My sweetie and I ordered different dishes. They were edible, not dangerous in any biological sense, but that's about the best I can say for either dish.
The fare seemed somewhat similar to that you might find in a mall food court. Chinese restaurants on my refuse-to-go list in other cities actually look inviting in comparison.
In short, if you're from the area maybe, but if you hail from a locale with a bounty of good Asian eateries, this will not be your salvation.
Best neighborhood Chinese restaurant on the South side. – Great place for every member of your family. Great service as well as great food. I highly recommend it.
