I found this restaurant in my quest to find decent lemon chicken. Most Chinese restaurants in the area just don't have good lemon chicken. Rong has great lemon chicken. It's nice and crispy. The sauce is sweet, but not overbearing. The portions are generous.
This place is tucked away in an older shopping center. It's hard to see from the street. When you step inside, you'll see a beautiful aquarium that is the centerpiece of the restaurant. The staff is extremely friendly. The food is extremely good. As with most Chinese restaurants, the food is prepared quickly, so you don't have to wait too long.
Take out service is quick, even if you order it when you get there. If you order it by phone, you'd want to make sure you leave right away. That way, the food isn't sitting there getting cold waiting for you.
I have had a bad experience with the food. One time, I got the egg fried rice home, took a bite, and was blasted by pepper. It tasted as if the cap had fallen off the pepper shaker. I called, and they apologized profusely. I had no problem getting a replacement order of rice.
Another time, there was an apparent mix up in the kitchen. The lemon chicken tasted like lemon pork. Using pork didn't quite work, since it was just too tough. Again, the problem was corrected without question or hassle.
