Where can I start, I can still taste the great food - for those of us who like chinese food. I was privileged to be part of fine dining because the food was cooked in a very traditional and authentic Chinese way. I love to taste and enjoy food- as authentic as possible, so I had what I was looking... More

This restaurant has a great atmosphere and amazing food. They not only cater to families but parties and other special occasions. The prices are affordable and the owners are wonderful. I'll definitely recommend everyone to come here! One of the best restaurant/coffee shop.

Good Taiwanese food the half dozen or so times I have been there at affordable prices. They give you large servings so be careful not to over order as I did the first couple times. For those that would like a glass of wine or cocktail with their meal, please note that all they serve is BEER.

I've been a few times to Milky Way -- they quality of the latte varied. If the owner made it, it was good. Otherwise, the ice wasn't shaved properly. The owner is nice, the employees not so much. Also, no windows -- not for the claustrophobic or those who want open areas. (With the bubbling fountain it felt like an... More
