Chose this restaurant after reading other reviews. Had a simply wonderful meal. Filet and green beans. Dan's special noodles with shrimp. Fried wontons with crab. All fresh and excellent. Service was friendly and attentive. Great value. It's in a strip mall, but nicely decorated inside.

Dan is an amazing cook and such a nice guy! In addition to a wonderful menu, he also makes special dishes and will cater to those with picky tastes. I love his spring rolls and calamari.
