Placed an order on the restaurant's website at 6:00 p.m. tonight. Received an email confirmation that said my order would be ready at 6:41 for delivery. Waited until almost 7:00 p.m. to get my order. Did not get it. Called the restaurant. Spoke with someone...who told me my order was not received because he wanted to know if it was through one of the delivery services. I said no it was through your website. He said oh they don't check that. Do not order through their website. He said it would be another 20 something minutes before I got my order. I asked if I would get a discount since I've already waited almost an hour for my food. He put a woman on the phone. She was extremely rude to me and said no they don't do delivery. And she will just cancel my order. Not accommodating in the least and extremely rude. My kids and I have been waiting for food for an hour now. And she said just call somewhere else that was her resolution. Do not order from this Chinese restaurant in Fox Lake. Horrible serviceMore

I am not big into Chinese food but usually do take-out a few times a year. This location has been there a few decades and is kind of old world, traditional in appearance. When I dined there I really like the ambiance and the dim...lighting. The food though I am no connoisseur, seems very good in comparison to other Chinese restaurants I have visited. The only negative if there is one is the music coming from the kitchen. I wish it could be more traditional.More

Not usually busy, not sure why. They have good food, good staff and a clean location. Nothing crazy, but it's good food with good prices

Best Egg Rolls around. Good Mongolian beef. Good General Tso’s Chicken. Can’t wait to go back. We did carry out

I'm disappointed with the recipes. This used to be my favorite Chinese restaurant in the Fox Lake area but now it's not good. I wish they'd make egg rolls like the former owners.

This is my go to place for Egg Foo Young. The brown gravy is to die for. They also have a sizzling rice soup I really like. The sisters are friendly, fast and always aim to please.

Appeared to have minimally remodeled inside and was under new ownership. We liked the food before although the restaurant was a little run down. This time they had different menus, colorful take out paper menus. Ordered couple of Mai Tais that tasted like fruit juices...& no alcohol. For appetizer we ordered 3 Egg rolls, because there were 3 of us there. They said they come in 2's and would have to get 2 orders or 4 egg rolls. Never had to do that in a Chinese restaurant before. So we got 2 orders or 4 egg rolls. They were average tasting. Egg drop soup was good. Husband ordered curry chicken. He said was ok. Son had chicken broccoli, which was definitely a different recipe than what they used to have. He was disappointed with it. I had Mongolian beef (not spicy). It looked really good but the sauce was too sweet. Besides dinner, they now have a flat screen tv on the wall that only plays you tube shows... They had a show on that was definitely not appropriate during dinner...stabbings, blood, foaming at mouth, nudity and swearing. Overall the visit was truly a huge disappointment. We won't be back.More

If I could give zero stars I would. Very dirty, bad lighting, outdated, small, and awful food. It is not that hard to make Chinese food. Broccoli was bad as in rotten, spicy food had zero spice, the sauce was flavorless, the cups were dirty,...and the chicken was questionable. I felt like bugs were going to seep out of the walls. Seriously the grossest restaurant I have ever been to. I am unsure how this place is still in business.More

On the advice of several family members, I drove out of the way to eat here while on a recent business trip. While the food was good - I can't say spectacular, just good - the overall feel for the place dropped when I was...continually pestered by the waitstaff asking why I was not ready to order. And then when i did - You Sure you want that? - it takes twenty minutes to cook. Overall: Meh to Meh+More

We love this restaurant! We have not been disappointed with anything we have tried. We only do carry-out but the inside is very inviting.
