We ate some yummy hand-made dumplings and noodles for dinner. You could hear the noodles being wacked in the kitchen which is always a good sign. We ordered a noodle/eggplant/pork dish in a clay pot, but it barely contained any pork, but the noodles were good. The cucumber and garlic dish was also good.
As an aside, the "jasmine" tea that was served in a themos was pretty awful - it tasted like hot water. We had an unusual fried bean cake for desert which was pretty good. The service was pretty ordinary, but once you had someone's attention, they were helpful.
Overall it was ok, we might go back again and focus on just dumplings and noodle dishes.
