I grab takeout from here at least once a week. They were recently voted number one Chinese restaurants in the city of Indianapolis by Nuvo. I highly recommend their Pad See Yu and steamed dumplings. Their pho is delicious as well.

Can't say this is the best Chinese in the city, but less than $11 got me a good meal. Szechwan Beef wasn't quite "hot" enough, but plenty of fresh crunchy veggies and a good sauce made it tasty. Egg roll and hot and sour soup...More

The pho is outstanding and very generous portion. the rate steak cooks in the broth. The non fried spring rolls are good as well.

The reviews were so good I had to try it. And low and behold it was really good pho. Broth is nice, accompanying basil, bean sprout etc were fresh and ample quantities provided. It was very busy but also very efficient. Definitely worth a trip...More
