Five of us had a business dinner here & we were all happy with the quality & quantity of the food. The restaurant was clean & the service was friendly. It was quiet, so we were able to talk comfortably.

Clean and reasonably priced. We eat here fairly often. My kids like all the north american stand-bys: egg rolls, spring rolls, cantonese chow mein etc.
