Creative menu! Best crab Rangoon I've had in many years. Dining in a warm and comfortable setting. Look forward to our next visit.

Beautiful restaurant that has good service and is BYOB. The menu had some unique items. The group of 5 of us each had something different and we all enjoyed our meals. They do take reservations which I would recommend on the weekend.

Food is always terrific and the Pad Thai shrimp and wonton soup are my favorites. Not a bad meal on 3 years. The new location is good and the access is easier.

This is our favorite place. We just yearn for our favorite dish when we have been away for a while. Go early and often. Try to get Jeff or Anny as you server. BYOB
