Quick and delicious. Perfect for a quick business luncheon between meetings when time is short. Try the General Taos Chicken.

I stopped by for lunch thinking it was a Thai restaurant but stayed anyways. Service is polite and expeditious. I ordered shrimp with broccoli which was very tasty. The egg roll was crispy and delicious. You cannot go wrong here.
