We just finished our dinner there and I feel like commenting as table service was notably lacking. Food was OK, nothing special and that is fine. However, the service was really slow, nobody really spoke good English and the wait staff took a long time...More

A co-worker recommended this place because it was nearby. I ordered the chicken fried rice expecting it to be average size. When I received my order it was huge and could feed 3-4 people for under 8 bucks. To my great surprise it was very...More
