This is a great neighborhood restaurant and it's quiet! You can actually hear the people you came with to the restaurant. The food is first rate and always fresh. It's fairly mild as far as Szechwan goes but flavorful.

We eat here almost every month. The food is so good. We always order more than we eat that evening so we have a second meal at home the next night. The Shezwan Prawns are great!

The food doesn't taste over spiced or too spicy. They have good soups and their salt and pepper calamari is my favorite. Their specials are typically... More

I used to come here a lot with family, and it has always been a go-to place for great Szechwan (Chinese) food. They make the best Mu-Shu (Moo-Shoo, however it is supposed to be spelled) anything ANYwhere. The plum sauce for the Mu-Shu chicken I had was so good I can still remember it now, thinking about it a few... More
