Actually, this cafe has the best spring rolls of anywhere in the world so far. The peanut sauce that comes with them is sensational. To round out a meal I get the bun noodles with extra peanut sauce.

This has been my family's favorite eatery since 1994 when we moved to KC. The spring rolls and pan-fried dumplings are beautiful and delicious! The peanut sauce is addictive...you can't go wrong with anything they serve.

Best shrimp spring rolls in town, cute little store front place down on 39th street (close to KU Med) - street parking available and great value for the money!

We went for Monday lunch at noon and they were decently busy with no wait. I haven't been here since the fire several years ago-the food is still good but the walls are now bare and the ambiance is suffering. We had the #1, "meatloaf"...More
