This is a nice authentic restaurant. The food is quite good and the selection of dishes will please everyone from the chicken tender crowd to the Mongolian grill enthusiast. If you want a real deal, get a box to go and pay by the pound!

They tell you when you call, 15 to 20 minutes, you arrive 25 minutes later and they still haven't made it, so you what another 10 to 15 minutes until you actually get your food. This happens ALL the time. Why do I call in...More
