The food here is delicious and inexpensive, made fresh for you. Steamed buns, dumplings, noodles are all excellent. A nice alternative to more expensive places on Main Street and the food is wonderful!

Simple menu prepared perfectly. If you love dumplings, hot buns and sesame noodles look no further! The price is great and they are adding some curry to the menu. Very casual setting with a small amount of indoor and outdoor seating. Fast service!
