I have always had a great expierence here. Our lunch is at 10:30am and they open at 11am, but they have never turned us away when we've shown up a little early. We are always seated and welcomed very quickly.
I order the sweet and sour chicken with fried rice. This meal is very good...the best sweet/sour chicken in town! The rice is also very tastey. My friends order the Crab Ragoons and go through a whole bottle of the sweet/sour sauce they place on the table (I think they would drink the stuff if someone let them!). I can eat for about $9 with tip and beverage. Of course, your bill also comes with a fortune cookie as an added bonus :)
