I have only been here a few times, but I have to say the Chili Lemon Grass (with chicken or whatever you want) is excellent! I've had a couple other dishes that were ok. Service has been pretty prompt. They don't mind splitting the check....More

Quiet night in we tried this place for take out after good reviews. We had sesame chicken and brown rice. Chicken enough for 2 . Rice a bit small. Great flavour and nice people. Great value at $12 you should try it.

The food was very good and reasonably priced. The staff was very warm and welcoming and was certain to point out items that were specially made. I am looking forward to this being my go-to place in the Heights for Asian food.

I first started going to this restaurant over two years ago and go back there every time I visit Houston. The mongolian beef is my favorite and they have the best hot and sour soup I have ever eaten. Great casual dining
