This group of four sampled the steak and the duck.we were all happy with our respective selections. The duck came Sichuan or with sweet potato. The steaks came with lots of veggies. When asked, the server brought a decent quantity of vegetables for the duck.

Great food and great friendly service. We had the steak sandwich, pie & pint, and the Vietnamese prawn salad: all of which tasted great and were filling.
