The food here is really tasty and packs a punch. I went for the Spicy Dan Dan Noodles, and the Spicy Chicken and the dumplings which were all very flavorsome and delicious.

We had the Kung Pao Chicken and Sautéed Lamb with Veggies and it was all cooked to perfection. Best Chinese food we've ever eaten by a landslide. Staff was quick and attentive. We will be going back.

It was packed . I'm glad I tried it. Everything was very very spicy. It was a little hard to communicate with waitress and we got something we didn't order but overall it was a good atmosphere and experience . Loved the eggplant appetizer.
