Excellent Chinese restaurant. Low key, friendly staff, casual setting and quality food. This restaurant can get crowded so I would recommend making a reservation. Portions are large so consider that when ordering. Three entrees are plenty for four people.

Food is basically chinese taste. This place is packed more often that not because food is cheap and choice of dishes in the menu are plenty. The place is neat but not clean, particularly the kitchen based on a partial view that I had. I...More
