Zyzzy, what a wonderful review! You are right: it's all about the food, not the decor/atmosphere although when we get busy, the restaurant sounds and feels like a very happy party. You're also right in that the combinations of flavours we offer are hard to...More

Hi, Jene fny. No, we have never uswed MSG and never will. It is a lazy way to enhance flvour and is a chemical, not even a food. We also do niot use any artificial preservatives or colourings. Our food is all natural.

Authentic north eastern Chinese cuisine featuring dishes rarely found outside China but very appealing to the western palate.
