The restaurant's signature dish is seafood delight, a shrimp entrée that is priced at $8.95 during dinner hours. A similar dish, shrimp with lobster sauce, sells for $4.95 at lunch. A wide variety of lunch entrees, all priced at $4.95, include pork fried rice or white rice and your choice of soup or an appetizer.

For those on a restricted diet, they have a selection of “Lite Chinese Food” that is steamed instead of fried, and served with a special sauce on the side.
