Amazing food, friendly staff. I had the sesame chicken lunch combo and my hubby had the tomato beef. And the crab wontons are to die for! Generous portions and reasonable prices. Can't wait to go back and try something else.

Small but great menu. Friendly helpful staff. Food was good with ample portions. I had the Mongolian Chicken which was spicy but not redicuosly spicy. My son had Spicy Chicken, and same again, spicy but not to spicy. Definitely worth a second visit.
