The food is delicious. A big fan of the soup dumplings (especially how they put each dumpling on a soup spoon) and the fried dumplings. The entrees are also very tasty. The prices are reasonable and the service is very good. Wish they had a...More

Had dinner here with friends- service was very friendly. The restaurant was very clean and nicely appointed. The food was good, but not great. Prices were average. I enjoyed my meal, but would not eat here again given so many other choices in the area.
