Our food was fantastic and we will definitely come here again for Chinese food. The eggplant and pork was great and the jasmin tea delightful. One entree is enought for two to share.

I felt like such a hippie nerd here but I have become such a tea afficionado I had to try this place. It was very good and I highly recommend it for a good cup of tea in the university area.

This was the second time I've eaten here and Seriously one of the best places I've ever had the pleasure of fine asian cooking! Everything is good with authentic flavors. They have homemade soup dumplings, and everything is amazing....I can't even describe how great this...More
