The clever title was the first thing that drew my attention. This game is all about managing a Chinese restaurant, presumably in a park. You have control over what you spend on employees, maintenance, renovations, advertising, and expansion. You attempt to get as many customers, loyal customers, and profits as possible. It is difficult to get the hang of at first, but a very good on-calc tutorial is provided. The controls may seem a bit cluttered, but that is because everything is packed onto the small screen of the calc. The little "people" running around in your restaurant (which changes, if you get the optional "expansion") break up the monotony quite nicely. There are enough things to do to make this game take a while to beat.

Graphics: 9/10: Cluttered, but well designed. People are amusing to watch. :)
Gameplay: 9/10: Enough things to do, although repetitive sometimes. Takes a while to beat
Speed: 7/10: Runs fairly fast considering its complexity
Originality: 9/10: Creative title, and fairly original game. Has plenty of features that others don't
Documentation: 10/10: The readme and on-calc manual explain any questions you might have, and make the game a lot less confusing
Size: 5/10: The only major downfall of this program is its large size. (14k + 4k or so for additional graphics and 5k for help files) However, you don't need to keep the graphics or help files if you need space.

Overall: 9/10 Great game, worth playing if you have space
