Enjoyed a very good lunch here. The food has vitality both in appearance and taste. Each course easily held its own and all arrived hot and ready to enjoy. Very attentive service and the place was very clean.

First time ordering takeout: Spring rolls, pork egg foo young, pork fried rice, & Oriental salad. My husband enjoyed it; I found it bland. Not likely to return.

Cozy and intimate setting, with a staff that really hustles. Food better than average. The restaurant was packed, but they had our to go order ready and piping hot. We'll definitely come back for a second dinner so we can sample more of the menu...More

They open for lunch at 11:00 am and I've had lunch there as late as 3:00 pm but they serve continuously until 9:30 pm when they close. They are closed on Tuesdays.
