I went there for Chinese hot pot and I was not disappointed. Remember to make a reservation for the hot pot. I left full and very satisfied. Highly recommend!more
Excellent. Small place, homey, clean. Very good service. I had the double-fried pork. It was very flavorful and cooked perfectly with just the right compliment of vegetables. The rice was a standout--like candy. I also really enjoyed the dumplings. Recommended.more
Came here in search of the numbing pepper and spicy food. Left feeling like ate so much oil and salt.
Here is what we ordered:

Smacked cucumber - delicious peanut sauce
Twice cooked pork - came with 4 baos (steamed buns), tasty but soo OILY
Spare ribs - fried in a batter and tasty - but make sure you have water or beer to wash...more
