First time here (since 1998). We had to ask for the separate Sichuan menu from which we ordered the tea smoked duck, which was terrific. We had Sichuan style noodles, which were spicy but not crazy hot. The hot and sour soup was good, as...More

Always a very good meal with the freshest sushi and unique rolls!! Staff is always friendly, although sometimes talking a bit too much, while you are trying to have a quiet dinner. Full liquor license is a big plus and the owner super nice!!
