What oriental place has the atmosphere of upscale dining? Food is great, made however you'd like and friendly staff!! Why would it be ranked the number 1 place in the area!!

Can't get as excited as other reviewers. Not much ambiance, although not uncommon in Oriental restaurants. Jean, the owner, was friendly and helpful when ordering, but hovered as we tried to enjoy a wine and appetizer. Didn't eat anywhere else in South Bend on this trip, but can't imagine this is number one. Food was good, but not outstanding.

Loved the owner. Just like others said, she sat down with us and helped us come up with our order. Charming! The food was great and reasonably priced. We will be going back again and again when we visit our son!

Great menu, and freshly prepared dishes. The owner is absolutely sweet, and she sits with you and finds your likes and dislikes. Easily one of the best Asian places I've EVER eaten in, and I've been around.... Highly recommended.

This is some of the best Chinese food you'll have anywhere. Over the last two years, I have been here multiple times. You sit down and the owner, Jean, will soon sit down with you. She'll ask what you like to eat, spicy or not, food allergies, etc. Don't worry about the menu, she'll make you an outstanding meal based on what you tell her.

It is best to go with a group. Everything is family style and she will bring you a wide range of entrées. The fish and almond shrimp are amazing, but everything is awesome.
