Same Chinese Food menu as you would have seen in the 60's. Classics done just as you would expect. Perfectly cooked and presented every time. This is about as textbook a Chinese restaurant as you can get.

Good food, great flavour, and they will cook Vegan options. I have been going to this for many years and have never ever had a complaint. The owner and his wife are fantastic.
