We took home food for dinner. It was O.K., but not great. The egg-drop/wonton soup was good, the pork egg rolls and scallion cake not-so-much (both were dripping with grease and not very flavorful). I tasted the seafood pan fried noodle and the vegetable mei fon. Both were O.K., but nothing to cheer about. I was glad that it didn't have MSG, but they could work on kicking up the flavors with other spices.

Take out only in my opinion.

This used to be a staple for Chinese in our HH . Then the quality and quantity took a dive and the prices went up $2.00 to $3.00 per dish . We had only ordered take out ( we had gone there for at least 15 years ), the eat in area is dated and sometimes not neat at all . The last time , the dishes were greasy , salty and overcooked . That was the last straw , called them and they didn't really seem to care . The kid I spoke to said to bring it back if I wanted to ! A total waste of $40.00!

Hubby and I stopped for a quick warm bite after taking the train home from NYC. On a cold Sunday night the food hit the spot. We both got the combination platters one beef and one chicken with mixed veggies. Decent food in a pinch!

We tried here because it's the closest to our home. Asked for no onions in everything and there were onions. The crispy noodles for the soup were the stale mass made baked kind, not the fresh fried ones. Eggroll wasn't good, the rest of the food was ok, once we picked the onions out.

Exit 8 on the NJT, then not too far off the beaten path, so it's easy on/off if you're looking for Chinese (we were). Kind of bland and sweet, but that's better than too salty...add soy from the sauce counter if you need a sodium fix...several sauces available. Bathroom was clean but watered down soap and empty paper towels. Very eclectic art collection and unremarkable furnishings.
