The spring rolls, not fried btw, were very good with the peanut sauce. Spare ribs were very tasty and not what you would expect if you're thinking 'Chinese spare ribs'. We also tried the Duck and a special fish entree. Service was very good, the place looks really nice and the food is great. Give it a try!

The Brussels Sprout appetizer were to die for. The tofu fried rice was so good that I ordered one to go for my lunch the next day. We wouldn’t have known about this restaurant if it had not been for open table. We will be back!!!

Chicken curry banh mi needs bit of work. For the dessert we tried the donuts with fillings and they were light/airy and tasty. Everything was superb. I will definitely come back here again and soon!
