Took our family here for lunch. Ordered cheese puffs (wontons?), pad Thai, garlic shrimp and noodles. It’s like a slightly nicer version of Panda Express but with a bigger menu. Shorter line than PeiWei; similar prices.

I love their house chicken and chow mein. Never had anything like either of those. A shame they don't have them in Northern California or Jacksonville

In the land of "stop by to get something on the way home" places to choose from, not only is the food pretty good overall, it's easy in, easy out, fun decor and always consistent. It's not a fancy restaurant to take the family out...More
