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.

Great lunch specials! Husband had Mongolian beef & I had Kung Pao chicken. Food was fresh & portions large. Service was quick. The dishes weren't spicy enough in my opinion but food is flavorful

Sechuan food is spicy and tasty. Unfortunately, we ordered less spicy dishes. The mu scu was very good. The hot and sour soup was tasty. The chicken and the Buddha delight were fine. Service was very good. Pricing are very reasonable
