We find the food authentic, delicious and very reasonably priced. Doesn't seem to be a charge for green tea. The sesame chicken is wonderful. You can get dishes hot spiced up as much as you like.

The cheese wontons and soup were both really good. The Mongolian beef was delicious, but a little over salted. Great service and clean.

Very comfortable atmosphere and above average Chinese food., Their Kung Pao chicken is excellent as well as their egg drop soup. Not to salty and really tasty. Nice wine options and friendly service.

This was our second straight time of eating there where we had horrible service (by the owner) and bland food. We won't go back.
