The cuisine here is excellent but generally the restaurant is empty since most customers take out because there really isn't any ambiance in this hole-in-the wall. No liquor is served.

Good healthy Chinese with lots of soy based options for non-meat eaters.

This is the first place I ordered Walnut Shrimp, and ever since I compare it to the dish they serve here whenever I eat it. All your favorites are here and in generous portions. When we don't feel like firing up the barbecue for Sunday dinner, we order for the family from here, and are never disappointed.

The food is good, but I was charged a significant mark-up on delivery.
