I’m really surprised at the 4 and 5-star reviews here. I have eaten here 7-8 times over the years and this recent trip was consistent with past visits. This is a story of missed opportunity: it could be a great location serving modestly-priced healthy food....More

On the list of recommended local restaurants from the Longwood Inn. A family style restaurant with reasonably good service. The food itself was reasonably good though not fantastic, and quite authentic. Price is reasonable.

The ambiance leaves a lot to be desired I'm afraid. A bit of sprucing up needs to happen here. The mai tai's were fantastic and the food was equally fantastic, however. The shrimp ShuMai was excellent as a starter and the spring rolls were good...More
