a astonishing atmosphere for this place, the Chef John is very very picky about his cooking, the kitchen is clean, the plates are well done, tasty and greedy. Tina his wife is in the restaurant hall to supervise. An unavoidable place in the region.

I’ve been to this restaurant multiple times and each time it has been a great meal. I would definitely recommend the Steamed Pork Buns and the Parmesan Tater Tots. They often have great specials, but I always love the Shumai Wrap or Lamb Burger
