Maybe I've been to so many excellent Asian restaurants that I'm a bit jaded, but I think this place is just average. It has good food, so-so atmosphere, and reasonable prices, and service was slow, at least when we went. I wouldn't mind having an...More

Good chinese food, nice atmosphere, attentive staff. Dumplings are great as is the House Fried Rice. Has a bar with TV if you are alone and just want an inexpensive quick chinese meal.

Regular menu dishes for chicken, seafood, and beef start @ 9.95, 11.95, & 10.95, respectively. Clean. Dark tables. Zen-ish. Gracious service. Ask them re: Ladies' Night.
