Met family as we were passing through town. We all ordered, but we shared sesame chicken and beef, orange chicken, sweet & sour pork, and Mongolian beef. Great change of pace in the land of green chile. Great service, lovely owners!

We've eaten here twice in the last year while on vacation. The food has been excellent each time. It's really one of the best Chinese restaurants we've eaten in. The service was great too. We'll come back again to enjoy another delicious meal.
