This restaurant has been a family favorite for years. The cooks never fail to amaze us with their dexterity and creativity! The food was excellent, too. The parking was plentiful and prices were not too high.

We were there for a holiday get together. Food was very good. They have changed a few things that we were a little disappointed about. They used to serve you bean sprouts and now they serve noodles. They were fine but we preferred the sprouts....More
