food comes fast, but it's missing quality. We have eaten there 3 x in the last 2 weeks (only because it was convenient)) ordering the same thing, each time it was different however the beef, chicken or pork always was lacking. To much sauce. The special pancake was good but very suite. Head to Yanze better food and value, maybe not as much selection but by far a better place to go.

huge menu. had egg rolls, pho, fried rice and soft shell crabs and highly recommend those. also had fried shrimp with walnuts and it was ok. expensive for what it was. oh and pork vermicelli was good but heavy on the noodle side and not so much meat. get this dish at another place. sevice was ok but we went at 6pm on friday so it was still early. my parents said it was better than bellaire location. this one is newer, bigger, better ambience with more parking. i do recommend but don't think is the all time favorite yet. need to try a few others.

We have eaten here several times and the last experience was great. It is a bit loud inside but the floor is big enough to seat away from the noise in the case of the evening we went. The service was excellent and food was superb including nice quantities. The seating area is quite large. The menu is as big as the seating area. Many good choices. Will go back soon even though it is a good hour and a half drive.

This review is for both locations, the one in Bellaire Blvd. and the one on Westheimer. Food is great and there is plenty of selection from the menu. Our favorite is "anything" with black bean sauce. Service is good and waitstaff is attentive. This is not a fancy restaurant at all, just a down to earth, Asian cuisine restaurant. This is another excellent option of the many Asian restaurants in Houston. Always a great meal on either location. The Bellaire location opens past midnight and even the Westheimer location is open until 11PM. Try this restaurant, you will enjoy their food.

I ordered small wonton soup but waitstaff tried to up sell the large one. If you want to try other items, don't go for it. The rice cake is great only when it's fresh and hot.
The wait staff cleaned the table s soon as they saw empty plate. I have not finish my soup n they just took away without asking. Just need to watch these little things. Overall, the food is good.
