This is a sit in chinese restaurant with good chinese food. The hosts are able to modify the menu to suit your palate and understand vegetarian food. The cashier insists on a tip in American style.

When I go here it is always for the lunch combo. It usually comes with hot and sour soup, rice, and sweet and sour pork or Mongolian beef. Food is always very tasty.
