Customer service is non existent in this place, but really it's been that way since they opened years ago. I waited 15 mins longer than quoted for take out without the slightest apology. As I sat there I watched 2 people come into dine & sit for over ten mins without being greeted, while an employee & I think 2 family member's that were just there hanging out I assume sat and played on their phones and laptops completely ignoring the customers. The spring rolls are a JOKE!! Just shrimp & iceberg lettuce rolled up in way too much rice paper with the worst peanut sauce ever! My shrimp & scallop dinner had ZERO scallops. Fried rice & egg rolls are pretty good, wonton & egg drop soup not so great. All in all pretty disappointed & just glad I used a Groupon instead of paying full price.

The counter staff initially wouldn't let me use my Groupon for take-out (no mention of this in terms) & told me to come back when I could sit down to eat. After my insistence & a phone call to the manager I was able to place order to-go. I was appreciative and tipped well. Based on the food, I'll never be back. My tofu was missing the veggies & tofu was drowning in oily orange water.

Fried egg rolls are good. Steamed veggie dumplings are not good. Fries are loaded with salt. Theread was no music as I came in. After I ordered my food and sat down, they switched on the music on fill blast where I could not hear anything on my phone. Had to ask them to please turn it down and even then I couldn't hear... Food is mediocre.

Cooking techniques are so crude! All the foods came out way too salty. Even sweet and sour chicken came out with a batter that has the consistency of saw dust, being deep fried.

Kung Pao Chicken&Shrimp with peanuts was good. The wonton soup was one of the best we have had!

Food was below average. Egg rolls were better than the entrees. Atmosphere was pleasant and waitstaff were okay but eerily quiet. All in all...not to be repeated.

when i and my son got there, the only people in the restaurant were 3 employees with 2of them played their phones and one slept on the table. The customer service was not good. We were told not all menus could be ordered for Groupon. The reason was some food were already too cheap. I don't understand why they use Groupon as a tool to promote. People like us come for a reason to try good food not the price. The rice was hard meaning uncooked properly. The portion of dishes were very small and the taste were not good at all. the long bean wilted and shriveled. It is just not a restaurant we want to go.
