    This restaurant has been in New Hyde Park for many years. Last time we ate here was over 20 years ago, so this tells you they are doing something right. Since we haven't been here for a long time and we had an opportunity we wanted to check it out.

    Even though they do a lot of take out orders it is also a very nice restaurant with an attractive cozy décor. Upon entering we had a warm greeting and were seated immediately. Our waitress came over and took our order. We both had hot tea to drink. I always have hot tea in a Chinese restaurant because it's the only tea I can drink without adding anything to it.

    For dinner we decided to share an app and an entree because it's usually too much food if we each had our own dinner. We ordered the Fried Crab Chees Wontons for an app and the Moo Shu Pork with 4 pancakes for dinner. The wontons came out with a dipping sauce, were very hot and tasted great, crunchy with a soft filling.

    Then our dinner came and the waitress asked us if we wanted her to prepare our wraps, since I always have trouble with it I said yes and she did a great job. This was also very good. Once we were done we were given the bill with some very tasting watermelon and fortune cookies.

    Our entire dining experience was very enjoyable and we hope to be back soon.

    Went with my new coworkers for lunch on Wednesday. It's actually a full restaurant that even has a bar, not just a takeout place. But we placed our orders, and took the food back to the office.

    I ordered the mapo tofu lunch special, which came with soup, soda, or an egg roll. I should have checked the bag before we left, because I ordered egg drop soup and they gave me wonton.

    Unsurprisingly, the mapo tofu was nowhere near authentic. The sauce was more sweet than anything when it should have been spicy. Very average Chinese take out, but they really should have been able to get my order right, especially since I ordered in person.

    This review is overdue by a year but seems applicable.
    I use to go to this restaurant almost weekly. I went once when it changed hands. The rice was hard and the flavor was missing. The ribs were soggy and lacked the bit of char that made them even more tasty.? I was considering giving them a 2nd chame but after seeing their rating Zi decided to jus add m overdue review.

    House special fried rice is my go to. Portion is big enough for two meals! Convenient and affordable, what is there not to love? They lose a star from lack of delivery option.
