The restaurant was almost empty at 5 pm when we arrived, but was very busy when we left an hour later. They offer a diverse menu including beef, chicken, pork, shrimp, vegetarian, and even tofu, along with multiple choices of accompaniments like broccoli, snow peas,...More

We went here hoping to finally find a decent restaurant that wasn't a chain or "cheap eats". I am glad we did and it was better than average. The staff were friendly and attentive. The food was good for the price.

Great food Great service, that's what we all look for in a restaurant. The hot and sour soup and the cashew chicken was very good. We went at lunch for business, everyone bragged on the food.

Slightly better than a buffet. The hot and sour soup is neither hot nor sour, it is a little sweet and otherwise tasteless. The chicken in garlic sauce was forgettable, the chicken was diced into about 1/2 inch square lumps as were the vegetables, neither...More
