So me personally I tend to think no restaurants in NC knows how to cook Chinese or Japanese food. I come from Florida where it’s pretty simple to us however this is some of the best Chinese food here. It’s always piping hot, fresh and seasoned to perfection man. I get the honey garlic chicken and also it is not really honey garlic but the taste is impeccable. The pork fried rice is amazingggg. These people here know what they are doing.

Great fried rice and egg rolls. Staff is nice enough. Price is reasonable. Place is clean enough. Pretty much what you want out of a local Chinese restaurant. They have a distinct flavor to other restaurants. That’s good or bad depending on your preferences. I think it’s good. More lightly seasoned and curry flavors. As well as use of leafy vegetables . Slightly more authentic I think. Best on this side of hickory by far.

Best chicken for a sweet and sour chicken of any Chinese place I have eaten. And was only one open at the time I went. Glad the others were closed. I would have never found my new favorite Chinese place
