Great happy service by Chef Liu! I am especially fond of the Szechuan Beef, Twice-Cooked Pork and the Chicken Hot Pot. The Shanghai buns are awesome also. Chef always has a new item for me to try.

We got both types of the soup dumplings and both were amazing! We can't wait to go back to get more dumplings. The dumplings were so great as an appetizer that we ordered mainly more dumplings as our meal. We also ordered green beans, however,...More
