Have been pleasantly satisfied with every meal we've had hereover the last 5 years. Lots of variety on the menu, however we enjoy the salads for lunch, whether it's shrimp, chicken, or tofu. Love the food, service, casual atmosphere, and the reasonable prices.

Not a big place, but the food is great and always tastes fresh. We love the spring rolls and the broccoli and beef dishes in particular. Can be busy on weekend nights.
