Went on a Sunday evening about 6:30 with reservations. We were a party of 7 to celebrate my daughter's 10th wedding anniversary.

We love this restaurant! We come every time we visit town. Friendly staff, good service, and amazing food. I have tried almost every Kung Pao Chicken where we live (in Colorado), and I just can't find one that I love as much as MK. We will be back again and again...
