Very nice setting, friendly service, average food, huge portions. Crab rangoons were nice, so was the Orange Chicken. Marko Polo and Cashew Chicken were nice, but somewhat blunt.

Mai Tais during Happy Hour were good, strong, and reasonable. Hot & Sour Soup was very good. Egg Rolls were oily. Schezwan Beef was OK, but had way too much celery, and almost no Onion. Service was good. Decor was boring.
