We have been regular customers for many years. Restaurant is pleasant and clean w minimalist design. Key staff have been there for many years and are very professional and attentive. Chef / owner has been there since before the beginning (Previously was chef at another local spot "Tang's" that closed resulting in opening of this restaurant). Food is tasty, light... More

Having looked at their online menu we made a reservation for an early dinner since we had a commitment close by. The restaurant was empty when we arrived. When we got the menu we were really surprised. The dish that we had both wanted to order was $18.95 and it was listed as $14.95 on their website. The appetizer difference... More

I finally made it here after years of hearing rave reviews. First I will say that I did take out. Everyone was very nice. The food was just disappointing. I had the general Tso. It came with white rice. There was an asterisk meaning "spicy" on the menu but there was zero spice. It was very crispy but not so... More

The service here was outstanding. Our orders arrived quickly and the dishes were hot when they arrived. The food was good. Most importantly, it was not greasy, nor did it taste like it was made with old, overused oil. I had the spring rolls, steamed dumplings, eggplant with spicy garlic sauce, and grouper cooked with ginger (one of the day's... More

My favorite neighborhood restaurant--food is served promptly and is fresh. Vegetables are crisp. Love the fish, chicken, and beef dishes.

Got takeout from here a few nights ago, wow! We've always wanted to try, so figured we'd get several items from the menu and we were very impressed. Satiated our Chinese cravings but we felt good about it. Food was very thoughtfully prepared, not greasy, and portions were perfect for two people. You'll also notice in your food here that... More

Exquisite delicate contemporary take on classic Chinese dishes. Craig Laban agrees and you will too. Signature dish is the mustard greens and any sautéed vegetable but don't miss the hot and sour soup.

Nice menu with lots of non-typical items but a few favorites thrown in. Attentive service, full bar and an easy atmosphere. Looking forward to going back.

Love the crab fried rice, asparagus & green beans stir fried with garlic and oil. All soups and steamed dumplings are outstanding. Spring rolls are okay but sometimes mushy. Have eaten there numerous times with family and always enjoyed the excellent service and outstanding dishes.

The steamed dumplings were excellent, don't miss them. The hot annd sour soup and mustard greens were bland and un exciting. Seafood scallop shrimp and squid was good but also un exciting. Sesame chicken was ok. Entree highlight was pork with scallions. Hot, spicy, and blew all else away. Atmosphere is sort of minimalist noisy modern. Emphasis on noisy. Service... More
