Best Mexican food

My Favorite Chinese Dish is BEEF GARLIC Over Rice and Vegys. This place makes it great!

One of the Best in the USA!

I just love this restaurant. As a truck driver, I've had the chance of visiting many Chinese restaurants across this country and I have to say that this one is one of the best, if not THE best in the country! The fried rice is actually FRIED RICE, not yellow saffron rice thrown in the wok for a few. The vegetable egg rolls, as well as the chicken egg rolls, are crisp and they taste freshly prepared rather than flash frozen. The wait staff is very helpful, even if they are heavily accented. Most importantly for me, they were VERY accomodating to my potentially deadly shellfish allergy. I highly recommend this place to anyone who needs a fix for Chinese food in the Steel City!

Great food and service...don't listen to Tamara

Don't listen to that Tamara girl. If you go to a restaurant 10 minutes before they close you deserve what you get. The people are fantastic, the food is outstanding (try the chicken fried rice...best in the city) and atmosphere is superb. I hate people that go somewhere like a restaurant right before they close. It is a nuisance and is rude. She got what she deserves. She's probably fat, too.

Operated by R@cist Chinese

Been there a few times late night and every time we were turned away. (They used to stay open until 5am years ago) The first time was @ 2.50am and they told us they were closed, I looked at the hours of operation and told them they were supposed to be open until 3. The begrudgingly served us. The next time we showed up @ 2.30 to make sure they were open and this time they turned us away... but in the back room there were many Chinese still there eating in the back room. Incensed I vowed never to return....
Well this last time (Sunday morning 13 may 2007) me and my friend Michelle attempted to be served one more time... this time @ 2.10 AM. We observed again, the back room full of Chinese patrons... SHE TURNED HER BACK ON US AND SAID THEY WERE CLOSED WHILE HER BACK WAS TURNED and we were turned away again. These people are r@cist and there are witnesses. If you wish to talk to me personally about this, my email address is goodemailaddress@hotmail.c0m and my name is Tamara. I will be glad to talk to anyone on the phone concerning this behavior they continue to display.

BEST CHINESE IN THE PGH AREA

MY FAMILY AND I HAVE BEEN GOING TO CHINATOWN INN FOR OVER 30 YEARS.

THEY ALSO SERVE THE BEST WANTON SOUP & EGG ROLLS. WE DO HOWEVER TRY SOMETHING NEW OFF THE MENU EACH VISIT. WE HAVE HAD FAMILY MEALS, BIRTHDAYS & SPEC. OCCASIONS AT CHINATOWN AND WE JUST LOVE IT.
