Cash-only. On a side road you've never bothered to drive down. It's tiny. You're going to drive back and forth in front of it at least twice before you see it. It will be packed, but you'll still get in within 15 minutes because they...More

This place is a hidden gem. One of the best values for a great meal, you'll find in the DC. It's shocking how good the food is for the money, no frills, great food.

Would get 5 if wasn't so small and popular. The food is good, service is sufficient and the food comes out relatively quickly. We like a lot of the items so it is hard to recommend just one or two. One thing I didn't like...More

Awesome place, everything we had was super good, especially the bean curd dish and the noodles. The smoky chicken is super smoky so if you don't like extra smokiness then you might want to skip that haha. The soybean milk tastes really fresh and reminds...More
