Three of us decided to call in after a couple of beers on Sunday evening. The windows were steamed up and, on entering, found the place to be pretty crowded, mostly with what appeared to be Chinese clientele. The decor is nothing to write home...More

We've eaten here 3 times and it's always delicious. Great price and very sweet servers. The regulars very often eat the large sharing hot pots which are totally divine.
