Interesting and good Chinese/Asian food. You order at the counter and they then prepare the order and bring it to you. The chef/owner is driven to excellence in preparation and likely will achieve it

No dog on the menu but beef, chicken, shrimp and fish are. Everything is cooked fresh. Plenty of vegetables. Honestly, I couldn't even try everything but I did manage the coconut shrimp, sesame chicken, beef and vegetables, another kind of shrimp and chicken and a pork entrée. It was all excellent.

Staff is friendly and this makes up for the neglect of the premises a little, but not enough
