Yelper Kelly D. wrote, "General Tso's chicken is amazing, and you can get varying levels of spice depending on your preference. Overall, I highly recommend this place and will continue to use this as my go-to spot for great Chinese food!"

Yelper Neltonia P. added, "The taste and flavor of the sweet and sour soup is perfect. The lo mein noodles are sauced well and not dry. Every time I go, I must get an order of the crab rangoons, and, really, those are what keep me coming back each time. They are hands down the best crab rangoons that I have had."
