We loved the food, our favorite was the potstickers! Probably the best potstickers we have had. Parking can be a challenge but they do easy online ordering foe takeout which was great to take back to our hotel room.

The snow pea and shrimp was among the best tasting dishes I have ever had a Chinese restaurant. The kung pao beef was spicy good and the sweet sour pork was fresh. All shared with fired rice. The pot stickers were a good appetizer.
