  • Great mix of classic and fusion Chinese dishes. Garlic noodles are not greasy or over garlicky.
  • Their lettuce wraps are delicious.
  • Lychee Seduction cocktail is truly seductive.
  • Came here for a birthday celebration, it was awesome. Happy Hour from 5-7, great selection of snacks and drinks! Everyone was very friendly and courteous, a new favorite HH spot.
  • Americanized Chinese food. They serve san tung chicken wings and the small appetizers are pretty good (pork belly buns)
  • They have a lot of gluten free & vegetarian options and the food is good! So rare to find a Chinese restaurant with these options
  • Zhajiangmian is authentic and tasty.
  • Firecracker mojito and mandarin mule $5 during happy hour. Appetizers are cheap but nothing stands out
  • Sea bass and tapas were pretty good. Indian noodles a bit spicy!
  • Beef broccolini is delicious! Sesame chicken is crunchy and flavorful. Everything including staff was great. Definitely must come back.
  • Hot and Sour Soup is the best in the world.
  • Get the pork quesadillas and ask for sweet and sour sauce with the potstickers it's really good!
