Superb selection of Noodle soups. Stopped for the first time. People friendly and place was clean.Ordered Steamed Fish Noodle soup. It was superb. It would be worth the trip to Moron Grove for their other dishes. Prices were very reasonable for lunch

Probably my favorite Chinese takeout. Their lunch menu offers just about everything you could find at any busy restaurant and at $5.00 to $6.00 you would be hard pressed to finish the entire order. Oh, and most importantly, the food, even simple vegan dishes have...More

I ordered the salt and pepper smelts, the roast duck, pork fried rice and it was overcooked. The only thing that was ok was the baby bok choi, egg rolls, and walnut shrimp. Don't know if I want to come back since I have been...More

For my family, the table for 10 menu can feed 16. We always are satisfied with the portions and flavors of their set menu for parties of 6 or more. Worth it. The fried sole is on point. Lobster or crabs good, noodles really tasty....More

Despite some sour recent reviews, our friends in Evanston insisted that the food is still quite good so we went for a simple take-out and were not disappointed! Seafood soup (huge portion, feeds two maybe three!), pot stickers (8), shrimp with lobster sauce and chicken...More

This place used to have the best Chinese’s food. So disappointing. Egg rolls were excellent. Everything else lacked flavor. I live close by and the food was cold when I returned home. The order was not ready when I arrived and the best I can...More

I would've if I could've given this place a 0 Star Rating. Walking into this place, they has a sign posted in the front door for a special vegetable dish. We ordered it, but was told it was sold out. They should've taken the sign...More

We have eaten here several times. The ginger and onion lobster, the mixed vegetable dish, salt and pepper smelts, egg rolls, beef chow fun with Chinese broccoli were the perfect mix for our tastes. It is all about balance and tastes that you want to...More

This restaurant is close to my in-laws house and I keep coming back for the delicious garlic eggplant dish. It is incredible...a huge pile of perfectly cooked Eggplant caramelized in warm, garlic soy sauce for only $7.95. Always have leftovers, too! The other food is...More

Three of us dined here on a whim. Typical plain Chinese sit down restaurant. We were there for food, not for decor. Moderately busy restaurant. Mix of customers, large noisy groups dining at banquet size tables and couples in booths. We ordered six dishes: stir...More
