If you are looking for something different and want to try a few things this is your place. New and well decorated this place has a small menu full of flavor and great choices. We ordered two types of dumplings, the spicy chicken and a few kabobs of lamb all done well. Would come back again

Driving back from the airport around lunchtime, we decided to try this restaurant. It was Chinese food, but not the regular Chinese that we are so used to seeing around.
The place is small and well lit, looking more like a warehouse canteen than a neat restaurant. The place was clean and pleasing to the eye.
We ordered Dumplings, Liang Noodle and La Zi Ji Chicken. Out of the three, the Chicken was awesome fried and on a bed of roasted chilies. The noodle was cold noodles - surprised - but it turned out ok. The staff was excellent!

We started with the black vinegar peanuts then went to the wonton soup, the bow, the short rib in scallion pancake and of course the Beijing style kung pao chicken. from the service to the food to what felt like an authentic Beijing experience I can highly recommend this as one of the best Chinese meals I’ve had in a long time! It was fun, the staff was informative on the history of the name and what the food is trying to accomplish but all that being said it’s just a great experience with great food. We will be back!

Grabbed dinner here with some friends. Nice place in a modern warehouse type setting. Multiple dumpling offers were all good. Noodles great, beef roll and the lamb and pork burgers were real tasty. Lamb had some spice zip which I loved. Try the peanuts as well. Quick, not costly, solid bar choices but not too extensive. Easy to get to location with Uber...

Great airy open space serving great street-type food/snacks. Order at the counter from the picture menu. We had the boiled pork dumplings, the cold spicy chicken noodles, and the scallion pancake. the pancake was lighter, crisper, and more salty than traditional Korean ones we have had, and would be great with cocktails which are inexpensive here). The cold noodles were good but do not have much chicken, and the dumplings were the best part of the meal. The portions are not large so you need to order 3-4 things for a good lunch for 2. Alas, after two visits with 2 people you might have eaten everything on the menu.
