The restaurant specializes in Sichuan, Hunan style cuisine, the numbing spicy kind. We had water-cooked fish strips in spicy hot oil and Sichuan peppercorns, and long beans charcoal cooked. Look at the pics and you'll be dripping in no time. Very fast service, no frills,...More

Enjoyed the food and their drinks were awesome. I would love to go back, but have to admit there are so many other places in the area I would to try out. But we will be back for sure sometime in the future.

Lunch prices are $8 to $9 and the quantities are substantial. The honey pecan shrimp was particularly tasty. The atmosphere is good -- clean and pleasant. The soup was warm, but should have been hot; otherwise, a good place to eat. The waiter was cordial.
