Have eaten there several times. Duck always always always the best around. Plus most other dishes are just amazing.

Make a reservation as this restaurant gets super busy. We tend to order our favorite dishes - Peking Duck of course, garlic sprouts, fried beef and their fried shrimp as well. This is more than enough for our group, and we always ask for the duck carcass to take home - you can make yummy homemade duck soup with it. And when we have birthdays, we order their seafood noodles - this dish is only ok, but noodles is a must for birthdays. Service is always great and the birthday celebrant gets his free dessert and the service staff sings for him too.

Their duck is expensive but at least worth it. Have been to other Chinese Restaurants for Peking Duck in the area, but they are still the best in my personal opinion.

We were there for a friend's birthday - apparently there were 20 other people there for birthdays because we heard lots of renditions of happy birthday in chinese, along with a free piece of cheesecake with a candle. cute touch. Our favorite thing was that when we asked what they could make that was gluten free, we were told everything! So, we got the Peking Duck and instead of the traditional pancakes, brought us rice wraps and our own Tamari sauce (regular soy sauce and the Hoisin sauce both have glutne). We also had the GF version of ginger beef and the special garlic sprouts with shrimp, both of which were fantastic. Our waitress was Wendy, and she took care of everything with a big smile and made sure to keep our GF foods separated from those of our friends. We'll be back for sure!

Wow! We knew something was up when we pulled into the packed parking lot. Fortunately we had reservations as when we arrived at 6:30 they had no openings until 9:00 pm.! The restaurant was very full but service nor food quality was affected. Everything was awesome! We started with the lettuce wraps - fresh and crisp and delightfully seasoned. Tiny steamed dumplings came next- so very good. Of course, you must have the Peking Duck - the table side carving is intriguing and when you take that first bite you aren't disappointed - crispy skin, tender duck, thin pancake, cucumber, green onion and tangy sweet Hoisin combine for a wonderful taste sensation. Also, watching the food that went to the other tables was amazing - can't wait to go back to try some other dishes. Everything looked delicious - the presentation so creative. Not sure how we have missed this place before but, glad we found it!

This is a fun place to dine, especially if you have not had Peking duck. Although they have a fairly extensive menu, most people order the duck for part of their meal. The duck was not bad, but for some reason, the meat was not as tasty as it should be. However, this seems to be the only place in town offers Peking duck. So by all means come and enjoy. The servers are friendly and attentive, and the atmosphere is intriguing.
