The Mongolian Lamb was very good, as were the pea pod leaves & the pot stickers. The staff was very attentive & welcoming. Unfortunately, they did not have their full liquor license when we dined, so we couldn't have any cocktails from their extensive menu.

I was so excited that they were opening in my town but what a disappointment! We decided to give them a try kind spur of the moment and were happy to see open tables outside when we drove up. We looked around for where to...find someone to seat up but when we didn't see anyone we went inside. I am still very uncomfortable entering restaurants and there wasn't an obvious host stand so I kind of hung by the door. Even so, the bartender could easily see me as well as the two servers that kept brushing past me going in and out the door. After quite some time, too long, they finally asked if we wanted to be seated and showed us to a table outside. I knew that I wanted the Crispy Shrimp with Lemon sauce that is one of their signature dishes. As always this dish is perfection! The shrimp are huge and plentiful. They are perfectly crisped and the lemon sauce is a dream. Hubby ordered the Salt and Pepper Three Delight. This was not good at all. It was very dry and the seafood all over cooked. They asked if we wanted rice and then didn't bring it. Since there were no veggies in either dish I was craving some. It took forever to get a server's attention and then instead of bringing us menu he suggested the mixed veggies. They were just awful. Simply tasteless and completely limp. I think I will stick to just carrying out the crispy shrimp from here and then supplement .More
