It looks like a bar slash after hours spot but turns out to be an amazing bar with off the hook drinks. I had a hobenaro moonshine lime mule I think and it was amazing. We ended up staying because of the energy and the...More

This is not your typical takeout Chinese restaurant. The food tastes great and is reasonably priced. The wantons in the wanton soup are handmade and the broth is flavorful. The beef in the basil beef is tender and well-portioned to the mushrooms/vegetables. Best time to...More

Excellent food with hefty portions. They accommodate both mild or spicy palettes for all dinning types. Reasonably priced in a fun friendly atmosphere.

I enjoyed lunch here with my daughter. I had the Garlic Chicken with broccoli. Lunch time was a good time to eat. Not very busy, we had to park on the street which appeared limited.
