This restaurant is charming. It is quiet and the service is excellent. The quality of the
food really stands out. My wife and I shared a delicious dish with shrimp,chicken and
beef. This was after we stuffed ourselves with cream cheese fried wontons. Yum.
The atmosphere is truly relaxing. Sum it all up and it equals a very pleasant evening.
We will certainly return.

The best thing about this restaurant is that for a Chinese place, it has a somewhat upscale feel. Certainly not fine dining, but not the typical dive. The food is pretty bad if you like Chinese food. Too many things wrong with the food for me to list here. Look elsewhere if you care about your food. We regret trying this place.

The dinner meal itself was excellent and the wait staff efficient and very fast. Nice atmosphere. The problem arose when we went to check out because I showed the staff a coupon on the smartphone and was told that they could only accept it if it were printed out. i went to a friend's house to use a printer and the coupon had changed to be only available for lunch. We went back to the restaurant and after much effort was able to finally get the manager to grudgingly accept the coupon. Be forewarned...just because you can see the coupon on your phone, does not mean that they will accept it. It is a shame, because as I said the food was good (but expensive).

This is a great place to bring your girl friend or your wife on special occasion. The place is nicely decorated. The menu is catered to American. I ask for a few popular Chinese noodle and Chow Fun dishes during lunch hours and they don't serve them. I ordered the Szechwan shrimp off the lunch section in the menu. It was $12. It comes with hot and sour soap (Good), fried won ton, half and orange and a piece of small cake on a huge plate. The shrimp dish was great. It comes with very little white rice. They should a lot more rice, for the money they charge for lunch. Service was fine.
The dinner dishes run out $15 to $19.
