As often as we eat here, we are impressed by the freshness, creativity and great taste of the food. Dan and Kim run a fine restaurant in a simple setting. Don't be put off by the strip mall. This is great Chinese-fusion cuisine.

An absolute must if you are a vegan or vegetarian. This place has an amazing menu full of mock meat dishes and tofu. Every dish I have had has been excellent, and it all comes spiced to your liking (spicy for me!).

Don't let the modest strip mall exterior fool you. The owners are amazing. The menu is vast. The food is outstanding. No generic over-salted grease here. Everything is fresh and packed with flavor. Eat in or take out - it's a hidden gem.

The food was quite good. We ordered the OMG shrimp, and some dumpling appetizers. The OMG was a large serving, and we shared it. It was quite flavorful and fresh. The dumplings were just dumplings. The menu has many healthy choices, like tofu, and gluten...More
