Delicious food served here with attractive presentation and reasonable prices. We had a one-hour dinner break with our daughter. Had a complete meal from 5-6pm. Enjoyed BBQ Shrimp and also #31. Garlic noodles and Imperial Rolls rock! Casual yet pleasant atmosphere.

Had heard good things from locals about this restaurant, so I decided to try it for lunch. Eating alone, I was seated at one end of a long 6-person table with two others; no problem. They were doing a brisk business, but service was efficient....More
