My wife and I picked up take-out from the Arlington Heights, IL location and I was AMAZED at how delicious everything was! We have seen numerous pillars of NW Suburban Chinese excellence fall down over the years, so when we drove up to this little hole-in-a-stripmall-type place I was not expecting much. But what a find!The egg-rolls were some of the best we have ever had. The Spicy-Hot-Shrimp that I had was not only excellent, fresh and hot (it does have crushed red pepper on it so be prepared for a mild burn!), but I'm loving it as cold leftovers the next day!! We also tried their pork-fried rice (wonderful!) and were surprised to learn that our takeout order even came with free soup!If I'm gushing a bit too much for a first-visit, it's only because of how excellent the food was, filling a gap that has been present for a number of years in this area. They do have a small dining room so we tried their sit-down experience during our next visit, as well as did some additional exploring of their menu. I heartily recommend the Fun See, it has become my new favorite dish because of this place! My son liked their General Tso's Chicken, but for my palette it was much too sweet. Service was acceptable but might not scale well when busy - we have been several times now and once it gets more than half-full you should be prepared to spend some extra time.Overall, this has become our new local favorite for casual Chinese eat-in or take-out!
This has been our "go to" Chinese carry out restaurant for years. They have a very extensive menu. The food is always good and still piping hot when we get home. Prices are very reasonable.

I'm familiar with this restaurant having visited there when I lived in the area. Was traveling, weather was kind of bad so I didn't want to venture out, so I used the delivery service. TOTALLY COOL! When you place your order, they supply live tracking from the time your order was received, to cooked, to out for deliver to delivered! And super accurate, showed up exactly on time! Had the chicken and veggie pot sticker combo and the peanut egg rolls, absolutely delicious! This may not be accurate, but I swear there was some cilantro sprinkled over the pot stickers. Sorry folks, I'm a cilantro hater! Don't like the taste and it gives me a tummy ache...I should have asked when I ordered to make sure there was no cilantro used in the recipe. Delivery guy was very prompt and courteous and thanked me for the tip. Would definitely order again if ever in the area!

Visited this restaurant with Chinese business associates. It's the real deal. All of the patrons were Chinese, the menu was primarily Chinese. I thought it was wonderful. Really felt like I was back to visiting China.The food was really good too. We ordered several dishes. I was most pleased with the salt and pepper shrimp and a fish dish (can't remember the Chinese name), it was all great. My friends were also well pleased as I guess were the other customers. Everyone was speaking Chinese.It was a lot of fun. Everyone was happy and friendly. And we all loved the food. Great choice if you're in the area and don't have time to go to China.

This was our first time here, we saw the great reviews on another site & decided to give them a try. We were greeted by a friendly hostess & seated right away. Our waitress was personable & attentive.I ordered the Peking Duck (one of my favorite dishes) & my dining companion ordered dim sum. The dim sum was made to order & very good (they have a larger selection on their weekend brunch menu). I was skeptical about ordering the Peking Duck because they said it comes pre-rolled (I prefer to prepare my own rolls). When it finally came to the table I think there were 6-8 rolls (I can't remember exactly its been a few days). I was extremely disappointed, there was very little of everything...duck, scallions & Hoisin sauce. I had asked the waitress if they could make the skin extra crispy when ordering & she said yes. No extra crispy skin & the duck was very fatty (my apologies if I am grossing anyone out), it was totally not worth 24.00. The couple next to us said they had been coming for years & have always found the food very good. Gauging by the quality of dim sum my companion had, we will most likely come back & try this place again, but I won't be ordering the Peking Duck again.

It's close to where we live and when we order Chinese good, this is our place. Egg rolls, crab Rangoon, fried rice, sesame beef, etc. It's all very good. We have eaten in the dining room which is nice and we order take-out a lot too. The place is very consistent which is why we like it. Dine-in service is friendly and attentive.

Ok, so here is the bottom line. Broad menu offerings. Large seating space for eating in. A very popular carry out. Moderate pricing. Can get expensive for a large family. Everything we have had has been very good.

Went there on Easter Sunday and had some good food. Service was very good and the restaurant was somewhat busy. No waiting line so sat right down. Restaurant is very open and tends to make it very noisy as there are minimal walls for separation. Servers do an excellent job of covering all tables as they help one another. Runners are very efficient in coming out will full trays and serving dishes to several tables at a time. Nice to be able to order Dim Sum as well as normal dishes at the same time and all day long.

Never a bad meal. We've had take out from there for lunch many many times. I've taken friends there for lunch and for dinner, always spot on. Delicious~ Only issue is the TINY parking lot. Get there early or you will have to wait for parking space to open.
