The vegetable egg rolls are amazing. Kids had General Tao, spicy or unspicy. Soups were good too. Unassuming place, very helpful service.

The menu at this restaurant is challenging, with page after page of tempting dishes from China, Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. Once you make your selection, however, the food appears within minutes. Despite being pre-prepared, it is uniformly delicious.

A great place to grab a late dessert before they close at 10. They always have a great selection of cheese cakes, fancy cakes and fun.
