    Greasy, but Tasty

    The food is too greasy for my liking, but some things such as the fried rice and miso soup are both very tasty. The pork is good, but the shrimp is not that great. We ordered a variety of 3 things - small size and shared and still had a ton of leftovers. My guest greatly enjoyed the food, as he doesn't mind greasy...kind of the like the equivilent to a good diner. The staff was all very pleasant and friendly, and the decor was mediocre; nothing special, but nicely put together. I would go there again as long as I was not ordering fried food.

    Excellent/fast delivery and food

    I've only taken out or had delivered. Excellent food including sushi. Fast delivery - no mistakes. I highly recommend.

    You don't have to drive to Chinatown!

    Though there are many good Chinese restaurants in Philly's Chinatown, this place in East Falls is the best in our area. They are friendly, welcoming and accomodating to everyone. Every time we have been there, the food has been great. We usually go in after 4:00 Mass at St. Bridget's Church, so now they know we are coming and know what we like. We recently celebrated Pop's 82nd birthday there. It was great! As for the food, the fried dumplings are the best. They are not thick and doughy, but thin and a little crispy. Perfect! The Shrimp and Beef in Black Bean Sauce is wonderful. So is the General Tso's Chicken. Whether you like you food spicy or not spicy, they will make it just how you want it. Enjoy!!

    Great renovations

    Since getting their liquor license approved and redoing their entire interior, the place looks incredible, and I don't feel as bad about paying eleven dollars for an order of sesame chicken as I used to. The service is immaculate, and they don't have the annoying habit of standing around watching you eat like waiters in many sit-down Chinese restaurants do. That said, all of their entree prices are about two dollars higher than I was used to in similar eateries in Flushing, so the value, especially for takeout, is not as high as it could be. They have an unfortunate habit of using untoasted sesame sees, however, so the flavor doesn't really permeate the way it should, and a lot of the "spicy" selections are not as hot as I'm used to. So, those two problems have cost them a full point in my rating. If you don't like spicy food or you're going there for the sushi, feel free to bump them up to a 4.5 or a 5.

    Best in East Falls/ Manayunk

    This is by far the best Chinese/Japanese in East Falls/Manayunk area. I was extremely skeptical at first, but have come to love it. While I've never eaten there, the take-out is always fresh hot (or cold if it's supposed to be) and quick to the door. It's never taken more than a half hour for them to deliver it. I love being able to get Chinese food and sushi from one spot who also delivers. The crispy orange chicken brings the perfect blend of spicy and sweet.

    Great Delivery

    I have never step foot inside the restaurunt so I cannot say for what the atmosphere is like. Their food is great and reliable! It's no Morimoto, but it is above par for your standard chinese restaurant. Their sushi is always fresh and well done - selection is standard. Their delivery service is excellent.
