My wife and I loved the food! We were looking for a restaurant with authentic Chinese food and we found it here. I had the Cumin Lamb, very flavorful. My wife had the Chong Qing chicken. Definitely suggest that people try this place.

My family and I have been eating here for several years. My wife is Chinese, and I lived in China for six years, so we do know authentic Chinese food. This is the best we've found in Portland.
