Have been here twice and the food is consistently good. I love the cashew crusted salmon filet and the food presentation is excellent. I have never been disappointed with the food here. You will be pleasantly surprised if you have never been here before.

This is a small family ran restaurant that serves quality, fresh food that is what I call Chinese Fusion. You can get your traditional Chinese fares here or some unique items. All done very, very well.

The down side: the szechwan chicken had way too many bell peppers which was not listed as an ingredient in the dish and lacked the spice that I associate with szechwan. The cashew crusted salmon did contain a few bones. Service can take some time....More

It is not really a place for all those kids. I think it would be too disruptive to other diners.
