Lai Wah's place is tucked away in a small strip mall. While the interior decor is largely dominated by wood paneling and dim lighting, the food is delicious and the value is unbeatable. The lunch and dinner specials offer a lot of variety for little money, and include iced tea for free. Lunch can usually be had for around $5, and dinner for about $6-7. Quick delivery is also available! The staff can be brusque but friendly, too. For my cheap Chinese food fix, Lai Wah's is my favorite neighborhood hole-in-the wall!
Pros: cheap food, tasty food, good variety
Cons: cheap decor, crowded at lunch
