Restaurant Has Seen Better Days – I have been a regular (2-3 time) weekly customer since 1992. On July 8, 2008, I made a conscious decision to stop patronizing this restaurant due to a drastically changing clientele that has become so disturbing that I no longer enjoy a quiet meal there. The management appears to now be catering to a "neighborhood" bar crowd that echoes throughout the dining room with fowl language, boisterous conversation and questionable activities. In addition, the food as become somewhat inconsistent in quality; yet the menu prices have increased; the service fair at best; and the cleanliness and upkeep of the restaurant often not good--especially the restrooms. My last several visits were quite disturbing as I walked into a dining room full of uncleared tables with one waitress or waiter serving while management only stood by without assisting to help. Frankly, I cannot believe this is happening at this place. I approached the owner about the noise coming from the bar--he seemingly was disconcerned. The last night there, Wednesday July 9, 2008, I was not only witness to a bar fight (do you believe it...in a Chinese restaurant?) but to another
distressed regular patron ( a middle-aged white women dining alone) who shared her observations of seeing illegal activities taking place in the bar--and too has seen the decline of the restaurant. I ask myself, why would management permit its long time regular customers to experience such dissatisfaction? Well, I won't be back there again...so now I'm off to my new find...The China Bell in Grove City...a wonderfully clean restaurant with excellent service and great food!
One of the best in town!! – The food here is wonderful - if there is something you like that is NOT on the menu, ASK they will make it for you. I was in the mood for Sesame Chicken the last time, which was not on the menu.. I thought I would ask, and the server said he could get it for me. And let me tell you, it was the BEST! My friend wanted her General Tso's a little extra spicy and she got hers as well. Service is fast and very friendly.. highly recommended!!
You don't know what you are missing!!!! – Hadn't been here in awhile. It was Sat evening. Parking lot was quite full so the food must still be good. Everything about this visit was good. We were there around 5 so there were plenty of tables. I noticed that of the people that were there most of them were older. So the food must be good...or real cheap. Well the food was very good and the prices while not in line with the take-out places were reasonable. We had a coupon from entertainment book which helped. I ordered the General Tsos chicken COOKED TO ORDER! I didn't want the breading so they left it off. My wife had Triple Delight and it was very good also. As we sat there the restaraunt started to fill up. Mostly older people. Most tables are white tablecloth but some booths without. The waitress was very helpful. Good meal all around.
