This placed looked cute from the outside - until you see the health code notice posted in the window. Looks like it isn't planning to reopen - here's hoping another Chinese restaurant will go in.

This is by far the best Chinese restaurant I have ever been to. My family and I look forward to Mr. Nings every summer and make it our first dinner stop and the last on our trip. Service is great and owners are so welcoming.
