We went here because it was close to our hotel. Glad we did. The place is really neat with a medieval, German feel. Stone fireplaces in every room and large wooden beams. We loved it. Our waitress was the nicest lady! The food was great...More

Haven't been back here in two years and I remember why. The atmosphere leaves much to be desired as it looks like a Steak and Ale with a few Asian fans on the wall and a Buddha in the foyer. We were handed menus and...More

This was the worst Chinese food I've ever had. The only item that tastes normal was the rice. The hot and sour soup was disgusting and the sauce on the beef was more like a watered down gravy. Cute restaurant but obviously has gone downhill.
