I've never had a bad meal here. We ordered pot stickers and pho with bean sprouts instead of noodles. Excellent, as usual.

Interesting menu - Chinese and Thai selections. You can "make your own" dinner - very good choice. The chicken peanut egg rolls are my favorite.

Everything was very fresh and light. Lots of variety and opportunity to pick what you want to add to your stir fry. Dumplings were light and yummy, my spicy stir-fry had lots of flavor. Pretty easy to bring leftovers home!
