This normally priced Chinese food manages to surpass the mundane, sometimes by a good bit. Vegetarians, try the eggplant in garlic sauce, but make sure you specify "without pork."
offers all of your family's favorites at affordable prices without MSG. Flavors are based on rich stocks, and sauces contain a minimum of oil. The deep-fried items are crispy, and what lies under the thin batter are fresh ingredients.

Definitely try the General Tso's chicken, a standout with a sinus-clearing spice rating. The hot-and-sour soup also leaves a pleasant, peppery afterburn.

If you don't want to shell out more than six or seven bucks for a decent, filling Chinese dinner, this is a good bet. Try the sesame chicken.
