The food is no longer top notch, I have been disappointed the last few visits. I always try to order different plates to have a variety, but like I said lately it has not been as good. I know they have a loyal patronage, I for one have been eating there since I worked off Austin St. in the 1980's,... More

We were there with a group and enjoyed the evening. Food was good and even with a group of about 25, the food was hot and fresh. The service was attentive.

Nice in town location with good food. Prices are pretty reasonable and you can carryout or eat in. Lots of free parking which is a real plus in this area. We have had several meals here and enjoyed them all.

I must admit I was pleasantly surprised as the atmosphere does lack a bit. However the food and service was great.

They had a few specific vegetarian options on the menu. I got a tofu dish and enjoyed it but the serving size seemed small for the price. I am used to Chinese tofu dish for about $7 and this was $10. Our friends enjoyed it fine but thought it wasn't exceptional.
