As someone that grew up in the Mid-Del area, I was raised eating Chinese food from Mandarin, a little family-owned restuarant on S.E. 44th. Over the years however, the quality of Mandarin's food has seemed to wane; everything all of a sudden seemed very greasy, and everything was coming with less meats and vegetables. Long Zhu, which as been open around six months (as of 4/08) is just the opposite. Their food is made to order from scratch (which unlike most Chinese restaurants nowadays means processed stuff heated up in a wok); when you order fried rice with beef or pork, there's actually big pieces of beef or pork in it. The egg rolls are homemade. Everything is served hot. There's a ton of a variety, and you get large portions of everything. And to top it all off, the prices are very reasonable. The only drawback that I've encourted thus far is that as yet, they only take cash. Since I never carry cash, this is often an issue for me. Otherwise, it's fantastic, and if you're ever in the Del City area, or just really want quality Chinese food, and I highly recommend it!
We ordered brocolli and chicken, pepper steak, beef fried rice, and 2 beef and cabage eggrolls for two. The food was great! All the vegitables in the brocolli and chicken and peppersteak were all fresh, crisp, and still reamined to keep their personnal flavors while being in the savory sauces of the entree'. The meats were tender and juicy. the rice was fresh, perfectly cooked, not over done, soggy, or split. The beef and cabbage eggroll was wonderful as well. The only questionable item was the price. We ordered like a family meal, it was a little high, and the quanitity of food in the order didn't really compare to the frice we paide. So go there, enjoy the food and the great service hospitality, but just order the individual dinners. Trust me, you will want more and that is why they are still so exceptional even the price issue.
I ordered Mongolian BBQ to go and they let me pick my choice of meats and veggies and then cooked it to my preference (medium well, and hot and spicy). The choices looked and smelled perfectly fresh, as much as I wanted for one price! But when they began cooking it on that large hot flat wok thing, the aroma was irresistible! My husband and I LOVED IT!!! The place looked perfectly clean and the workers were friendly and helpful. We can't wait to go back! Their BBQ pork fried rice was also outstanding! Yum!!! We are going to take my parents their tomorrow for Dad's birthday. I'm already drooling!!!
This place has been there since i was a kid. The same name, the same look, and probably the same gold fish in their fish tank! That thing is huge! Anyway, the food is great on the go very fast, sometimes a lil too greasy but, hey it's Chinese isn't most of it fried or oiled down anyway? The service is a trip though..u never know who's gonna be frowning at the drive thru window,,and be sure to ask for extra soy sauce to really get that frown goin!LOL..Overall it's a 4* because it's consistent. Consistant for the last 20 years anyway...that's a tough act to follow!!
Golden China is in a strip mall, which made me a little wary, at first. Thank goodness I don't believe in first impressions. Everything is clean though it is a little small. It only seats 32, 8 tables of 4. Everytime I've been there the same people are working but every meal I've had is made like it's the first of the day. The customer service is great, and they always seem genuinely happy. I wish it weren't half an hour from the house, but since it is, I'll gladly drive it!!
It's the only Chinese take-out everyone at our office will eat. The shrimp are really big too. Everything is nice and fresh. The fried rice could be better, but I get steamed rice anyway. The egg rolls are ready made and fried to order. They are okay. As good as you will get at any take-out place. Sometimes they say 15 mins., but it can be really busy and take more time. The longest I've waited is 30 mins., but that is unusual as I call ahead now.
My family has been going to this restaurant for 10 years now and we absolutely LOVE it! The food is always fresh and if there is something you want that is not on the buffet or if they are running low on a dish, just ask and they will make it. The atmosphere is very good and the staff is very friendly. My 10 year old daughter says "IT IS AWESOME!" - a direct quote. Do not pass up this restaurant!
I totally disagree with PickyEater. I've been eating at SpeedyWok for well over a decade. The food is always fresh and hot. The prices can't be beat! While I don't normally eat at the restaurant, but instead prefer pickup or delivery, I've always found the restaurant clean and all the employees, even the owner most polite. I highly recommend the restaurant to all my friends and neighbors.
I really like this buffet. I live in Altus, OK and this blows our Chinese restuarants out of the water. They have the best Mongolian BBQ I've ever had. I haven't had a whole lot from the buffet, but the people I've taken with me to this place have never complained about it not having taste, like the previous review stated. I will definetly continue to stop in this place when I go to Oklahoma City.
Best dim sum in the metro, IMHO. (We tired of Grand House's long lines, and found that Fung's dim sum selection -- while a tad more limited, granted -- was better overall compared to Grand House's.) The snow pea tips here are also VERY good. (Be sure to ask for the Chinese menu if you, like me, want to avoid all the pseudo-Chinese Cantonese-American crap.)
