The food was pretty good. The pork looked under cooked. Chicken lettuce wraps had hardly any chicken in them. They were very nice as far as servers.

We ordered Xiao Long Bao, steamed dumplings, brittle bone flounder, and chicken curry. All of the dishes were good, just not that much better than your local Chinese restaurant that specializes in delivery. So, although this restaurant isn't terribly expensive (menu with prices posted and accurate), I wouldn't call it a good value either.

Service was great. Required vallet for the tiny parking lot is ridiculous though.

Took a friend for a birthday, and was blown away by the experience. I love good cocktail, and the bar was incredible. We had a great time, and felt like part of a the place with only a few conversations with the staff. Have it on my list to go again next time I go out, I have to try more of their drinks!

Went in on a whim. A pleasant surprise of delicious Chinese cuisine. Very, very fresh ingredients. I had craft cocktail, which I normally do not order. It was a gin and red dragon fruit. Hats off to Marcus, mixologist, it was delicious. The hostess Mary could not have been more welcoming. We’ll be back.

The best Chinese/Asian cuisine that I’ve had in Houston and maybe anywhere. Extremely gluten-free friendly which helps with our party. We cannot wait to return!

Food was delicious but on pricey side. At almost 30 a plate , expected more than plain rice as side. Soup, vegetables were extra and around 10 each.Very attentive and knowledgeable staff. COVID protection measures were excellent. Only thing was Cocktails were way overpriced. Most were $15.00 per drink and they were not large, rather small even they were less than 10, still too expensive. Valet parking or walk across street.

A gracious owner who makes everyone feel welcome. Outstanding food and drinks. The safest indoor dining I have found - temperature checks and a spray with sanitizer before you go in.

The most serious about anti-virus we've seen yet! Temperature taken, sprayed down with some sort of sanitizer - even the bottoms of our shoes. Very creative dividers between tables (large blowups of the menu!). Then, the owner (absolutely lovely lady) kept her finger on the pulse of everything that was happening. She took orders, answered questions - is obviously very, very invested in her business. She also said, "I'm an owner, but the entire team has ownership," which I thought spoke volumes. The food was absolute perfection and everyone we dealt with understood the concept of service, which is sorely lacking. Beautiful evening!

Haven’t been since February because of COVID-19 and took some vendors there for their first visit. It was excellent as usual. Mary runs a fantastic restaurant and the food is the best true Chinese not American Chinese I have had since moving to America 10 years ago. Absolutely love it and the Heath and safety protocols in place are just perfect to make you feel relaxed and safe. So glad to go back again!

The service was exceptional and the food was really great. We had the Xiao long bao, the Cantonese chicken, beef chow fun, and the gold rush bao for dessert - it was all high quality. We’ll definitely be back.
