We ordered take out on a Friday night. Highlights - General Tao's was slimey, stuffed veggie dumplings were rubbery and the sticky rice was dry. We will not be ordering from So Good again.

Great food served in this hole in the wall. Place needs a good cleaning & updating. Family run including uneven service. Best wusee & moshe. Large menu, great lunch specials & tasty food entices me to prefer takeout.
