Delightful menu & great service. The entree choices are quite unique compared to the typical chinese restaurants. The owners are eager to offer different dishes & customer-friendly. The ambiance is airy & smart.

We went to this place the week it opened and were satisfied but a bit underwhelmed. Well, we returned recently and I'm happy to report that they have added to their menu and we found it to be both a great value and a good choice for a warm bowl of tasty noodles and soup. I had a curry bowl that was so large, I took it home and used the thick broth as a sauce on vegetables after I finished off the tasty noodles. We will definitely be back.

This is not a neighborhood Chinese takeout joint with General Tso's Chicken. This is a very good restaurant with noodle dishes that you would find in China right now. The ambiance is casual but very clean & bright. The dishes are light on protein, the way a real Chinese noodle dish is, and mostly consists of noodles flavored very well with sauces & spices. Excellent! There is also an emphasis on tea, and it is served on a lovely tray. There is even a mini tea shop in the back, with gorgeous porcelain teapots and cups.

Went there for lunch on a Sunday.

I had spring rolls and the Sichuan Dan-Dan noodle plate (Ramen wheat noodle with ground pork, Sichuan chili sauce, peanut, sesame, bok choy, bean sprout & scallion).

Asked for the noodles to be extra spicy, and they turned out just right for someone who likes their food REALLY spicy. (If you're not in that category, be suitably warned!)

I felt that the noodles should have just a little more ground pork and bok choy. But the ramen noodles were cooked just right, and the whole dish tasted so great that I'm going ahead and giving 5 stars. The sauce for this dish was excellent. I shamelessly drank up the teaspoon that was left at the end.

The noodles came before the spring rolls, but when the spring rolls arrived they were so piping hot that they were a real pleasure to eat.

The service was attentive, cheerful, friendly -- just perfect.

All in all, a really outstanding meal!

(BTW, there's free parking in the back.)
