Average Chinese food, good prices, really interesting decor. I love the decor. They should keep it just as is. It's got to be one of the most interesting restaurants, visually, in the area. That said, it has this weird 'lost in time' quality and honestly,...More

Okay, the decor is very nice and it is very roomy. I can't think of anything else good to say. Dirty water glasses with lipstick on them. Things floating in the water. Yuck. Very slow and it was not at all busy. Hot tea took...More
