Best crab Rangoon ever. Wrappers not rubbery like most are. Excellent fried rice and summer rolls. We will be back.

Super great tofu veggie pho! This place is great. There is a bar area to sit and watch the hustle a bustle in the kitchen, which is connected with the dining area. Feels and tastes like an authentic "hole in the wall".
