We stumbled across this excellent restaurant by mistake but boy was we glad we did. The food was amazing, the staff friendly and the prices unbeatable. The only one we went back to and on our last night as well, very highly recommend.

The room is spacious and food is plentiful. Very delicious traditional food. Service is very good. The place is frequented by many Asians from the business community. I highly recommend this location.
