This is a sit in chinese restaurant with good chinese food. The hosts are able to modify the menu to suit your palate and understand vegetarian food. The cashier insists on a tip in American style.

I had vegetarian chow fun and vegetarian hot and sour soup. I've never seen the soup on the menu anywhere else and I was not disappointed - not as good as my mom's, but still very tasty. The service was friendly but a little slow...More
