Incredible simple homemade authentic cuisine. Too many accolades for uniqueness and originality. Like a place you would find buried in the inner city. Excellent lunch menu.

First time visiting and the food was great. Had the Hot/Sour Dumpling soup and the Lamb with Noodles - and a pork flatbread. Pork was very juicy and good tasting. Soup was outstanding. Will return to try other stuff.
