An old standard which might be off putting but don't judge a book by its cover. Vegetables were fresh, sauces light and flavorful and the servings were a good size. 3 dishes for 2 which lasted for next day's kunch and sides for another dinner.

Visited again several times. The food was superb. Just to mention a few dishes - Special chow mein, Chicken Hot pot, Sweet and sour fish. Just to tell the person who mentioned flies below - windows are full of plants, never any flies. The restaurant...More

Having read previous comments, we went with opened mind. For those who like an intimate atmosphere, lovely interior, and excellent Chinese food, this is the place for you. Order from the menu, no buffet here, which means, you will get freshly made food, cooked with...More
